Radish Chips


2 large black radishes

Olive oil

Balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper, to taste

Red pepper flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 425F. Grease a baking dish (unless it is non-stick).
  • Wash and scrub the radishes. Peel them with a vegetable peeler, leaving half of the peel in stripes if desired. 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.
  • Pour a little olive oil, a little vinegar, sprinkle salt, pepper and red pepper flakes over top. Toss with a wooden spoon to coat. Pour and sprinkle more if necessary, until all the slices look comfortably dressed - but not drenched.
  • Put in the oven to bake for about 40 minutes, until the chips are golden and their edges start to crisp up. Serve warm, as an appetizer or a side.
