Ingredients you will need
Fresh radishes: This root vegetable has varieties that are in season at all different times of the year, so you’ll always be able to find a quality bunch of radishes! You’ll love red radishes for their slightly sweet taste and peppery flavor.
Olive oil: Any kind of spray cooking oil will help crisp up your radish chips. Olive oil is my preference, but avocado oil, sunflower oil, or peanut oil could also work.
Seasonings: I used a combination of classic salt and black pepper with garlic powder and onion powder for a nice savory flavor.
You can also experiment with other seasonings like smoked paprika, chili flakes or red pepper flakes, mustard powder, or herbs like thyme, oregano, basil, and more. You could even use Italian seasoning or another seasoning blend.
This recipe also works with other root vegetables like pasnips, carrots, daikon radishes, and beets.
How to make radish chips in the air fryer
1. Prepare radishes. Remove the radish stems and roots, then slice each radish into thin pieces on a cutting board with a sharp knife or with a mandoline. You can save the radish greens to use for salads, stir fries, quiches, or soups.
2. Season the radishes. Arrange the radish slices on a baking sheet and spritz lightly with a little bit of oil. Sprinkle the seasonings over top, then toss together until everything is properly coated.
3. Air fry radishes. In a single layer in your air fryer, air fry the radishes for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown along the edges. Air frying may need to be done in batches to avoid overlap and ensure best results and crispy radishes.
4. Cool and serve. Transfer air fried radishes to a wire rack and let them cool 5 minutes or so before serving.
How to serve radish chips
You can serve these air fried radishes as a great substitute for potato chips! Eat them on their own as a crunchy snack, pair with a tasty dish like crab dip, sour cream and onion dip, healthy buffalo chicken dip, or a spicy jalapeno popper dip.
Another option is to serve this air fryer radish recipe as a tasty side dish! Because they’re light and healthy, they make an excellent choice when you’re craving something like french fries on the side of a main course like burgers.
What is the best air fryer to purchase?
This depends on a couple of different variables! If you have a lot of counter space, you might want to go for a toaster oven style, I like this one because it flips up and gives you your counter space back! This will give you some more functionality, as well as a fairly large air fryer basket.
You could also use this to toast, roast, and cook other foods, but these devices can be a bit expensive.
On the other hand, if you’re looking mostly to cook for yourself or just a couple of people, and your goals are to make snacks or heat up frozen foods, a basket style air fryer is more compact and many of them are more affordable than the toaster oven style.
Can you dehydrate radishes?
Sure, dehydrating radishes is another way you can produce healthy chips, and you won’t even need oil to do it.
You’ll need a dehydrator or an air fryer with a dehydrate setting for this, as most ovens won’t actually go low enough to get the temperature you need (around 125 degrees Fahrenheit).
This is a good option when you want to preserve raw radishes for a longer time. Keep them in an airtight container, glass jar, or other container of your choice.
Can you make radish chips in the oven?
Absolutely! Follow the preparation instructions as listed, then bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, or until nice and crispy.

Air Fryer Radish Chips
- 1/2 pound fresh radishes, washed
- olive oil spray
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 3/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Preheat the air fryer to 350°F.
- Remove the stems and roots from the radishes, then slice the radishes into ⅛-inch thick pieces using a sharp knife or a mandoline.
- Arrange the radish slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and add a light coating of olive oil cooking spray over them. You can also gently brush them with olive oil using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and black pepper over the radish slices. Toss the sliced radishes to make sure they are fully coated in oil and seasonings.
- Arrange the radish slices in a single layer inside the air fryer basket, making sure not to overlap them. If necessary, cook them in batches to ensure all the slices cook evenly. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges and crispy, tossing or flipping the radishes halfway through.
- When finished, place the radish slices in a single layer on a cooling rack and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Nutrition information is approximate and was calculated using a recipe nutrition label generator.
- Make sure that your radish slices are around ⅛ inches thick or slightly thicker to prevent them from breaking during the cooking process.
- Leave the skin on the radishes for extra crispiness.
- If you are working in batches, they might take less time to cook.
