You may know–and love–radishes in their raw state. But they’re lovely in this delicious side dish, too. Butter adds a bit of richness to this otherwise simple dish. Browning the butter takes it a step further to add a nutty note, enlivened on the other end by the mint.

Sauteed Radishes with Mint

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Sauteed Radishes with Mint


  1. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon butter
  3. 1 pound radishes, trimmed and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch wedges
  4. Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 tablespoons roughly chopped mint


Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Let butter melt and then cook a bit longer, until it’s a deep golden and beginning to take on a nutty smell, about 2 minutes total.

Add radishes to pan and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes, tossing frequently, until radishes are tender and tinged with caramelization in places. Let cool slightly and sprinkle with mint and additional salt to taste.
