Expert Tips For Making Air Fryer Radishes

  • Arrange In A Single Layer: Arrange the chopped radishes in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Don’t overcrowd the basket, and ensure there is enough room for the hot air to circulate in the air fryer.
  • Cut Into Quarters: Cut both ends off of the radishes, and then cut each one into quarters. Cut them as evenly as possible so they cook at the same rate. Also, cut each radish into quarters or small pieces so they become crispy.
  • Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 375°F while you chop and season the radishes so it is ready to go. Having it already preheated helps ensure more even cooking and crispiness.
  • Season: Thoroughly mix the ingredients to season all of the chopped radishes. We love adding fresh garlic because it adds even more flavor than garlic powder. It is important to season the radishes well for the most flavorful results.
  • Shake: Don’t forget to shake the air fryer basket halfway through while the radishes cook. It helps them cook evenly on all sides.
  • Check If Done: Check on the radishes to make sure they don’t burn or overcook. They are done when they are cooked through and golden brown on the outside. Keep an eye on them towards the end because the exact time depends on the size of the chopped radishes.
  • Enjoy Immediately: Air fryer radishes are best enjoyed when served immediately after air frying them. They taste the best when they are warm and crispy.

To Store: You probably won’t have many leftovers, but if you do, or if you double this recipe, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

To Reheat: Reheat air fryer radishes in the air fryer for a few minutes or in the oven before enjoying.


  • Add Parmesan Cheese: Toss the chopped radishes in one tablespoon of freshly grated parmesan cheese before air frying or once done.
  • Italian Herbs Substitution: If you don’t have a blend of Italian herbs, use 1/8 teaspoon of oregano and 1/8 teaspoon of dried basil.
  • Heat: For some spice, add a bit of chili powder or some crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Garlic: We used fresh cloves of garlic to add the most flavor to these radishes. We recommend using fresh garlic in this recipe for the best flavor, but if you don’t have any, you can use 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • Air Fry More Radishes: When the radishes cook, they become smaller in size. One pound of radishes serves about one to two. You can double or triple this recipe to make more air fryer radishes. However, cook the radishes in batches as needed so you don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket.
