INGREDIENTS FOR AIR FRYER RADISHES

It uses one bunch of radishes which comes out to 1 cup of radishes once trimmed and cut into small chunks. You can easily multiple this recipe out to get the number of servings you need.
Besides the fresh radishes, it takes avocado oil and seasonings to make cook them in the air fryer. Radishes need some seasoning so this recipe calls for salt, pepper, and garlic powder. To help crisp up the radishes in the air fryer and for the season to stick, use avocado oil spray.
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER KETO RADISHES
Begin this recipe by prepping your radishes. Wash the radishes, scrubbing off any dirt. Let them dry on a paper towel or in a colander.
Trim off the roots and stems but do not peel. Cut the radishes to be 1-inch pieces so they are as uniform in size as possible. This ensures they all cook evenly.
SEASON RADISHES BEFORE AIR FRYING
Place the radishes in a bowl and spray with avocado oil. Next, add the seasonings and toss to coat.
HOW LONG TO AIR FRY RADISHES
It does not take long to air fry radishes that have been cut into chunks. Bigger chunks will take longer but if you cut these to be about 1" in size they should only take about 10-12 minutes. To ensure they get enough air around them to cook evenly, place the seasoned radishes in a single layer in your air fryer basket or tray. It is best to not overcrowd them so that the hot air can circulate around them to fry them properly.
Once the radishes are in the air fryer basket or tray, set it for 400F for 10-12 minutes. At the midpoint around the 6 minutes shake or stir them around carefully. Let them cook until they are brown & crispy on the outside and fork-tender on the inside.
HOW TO TELL WHEN AIR FRYER RADISHES ARE DONE
When the radishes are ready in the air fryer, they should have a few edges that have browned as if they were roasted in the oven. They will shrink a bit and look shriveled. The outside will be a bit crispy and just soft enough for a fork to pierce the radish. They should not be mushy but still have a bit of firmness in the center when you take a bite - think al dente.
Once they are done, they are ready to eat. Serve immediately and top with parmesan cheese or fresh herbs – optional.

I am glad to hear you will be making this again already. His vote counts too and though we all wish we could have potatoes all the time, these radishes are a good change to keep the calories and carbs low and for a healthy option.
