Are Radishes Keto?

Yes, radishes are keto. They’re low in net carbs, but they’re also low in fat so make sure you adjust your macros. Sauteeing the radishes in bacon and butter is a good way to offset some of that lack of fat, and it just makes them even more delicious!

Ingredients

  • Radishes – Regular red radishes are fine. Wash and trim them, then quarter them.
  • Bacon – Good bacon. A few slices of nice fatty bacon will do the trick.
  • Butter – I like salted butter, but use what you have.
  • Salt and pepper – Adjust the seasoning after cooking.
  • Parsley – Adds a pop of color and freshness.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Don’t overcook the radishes – they should be fork-tender. If you like them with a bit of crunch, that’s OK.
  • Crumbled bacon is so good – don’t forget to add it back to the radishes!
  • Jazz up the flavor even more with a bit of onion and garlic – but don’t forget to add the carbs.
