Fake Out Keto “Potatoes” (Radishes)

When I was doing a low carb/keto diet I was missing my potatoes. I love potatoes in every form. I had come across people who were saying that roasted radishes kind of give off the flavor or a red potato. I was skeptical at first, I really was. I decided to give it a try and much to my surprise, they were alarmingly good. The flavor of the radish completely changes once you season them up, add some olive oil and roast in the oven.

I was so surprised and I think you will be too. I hadn’t had a radish in years. When my Dad was alive we use to always put them in our salads so it’s was a long time since I actually bought radishes. I decided to buy some to eat raw too and it just took me back. I forgot I actually liked them.

I know this seems odd, but seriously give it a try. Does it 100% taste like a potato? No, will you never want to eat a potatoes again because that’s how good this recipe is, No. BUT it’s a good way to add some more veggies to your diet and in a fun way that makes you think you are eating something besides radishes.
