Black Radish Chips

Published by



  • 2 large black radishes
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt, pepper
  • piment d'Espelette (optional, substitute chili flakes)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Grease a baking dish (unless it is non-stick).
  2. Wash and scrub the radishes. Peel them with a vegetable peeler, leaving half of the peel in stripes if desired.
  3. Slice the radishes thinly -- very thin slices will be more chip-like, slightly thicker slices will be moister -- and put the slices in the baking dish.
  4. Pour a little olive oil and a little vinegar, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and piment d'Espelette. Toss to coat. Adjust the amounts so all the slices look comfortably dressed, but not drenched.
  5. Put in the oven to bake for about 20 minutes, until the chips are golden and their edges start to crisp up. Serve warm, as an appetizer or a side.
