Roasted Radishes and Baby Carrots are the perfect side dish to any Cycle 3 Dinner!

Radishes are a favorite lower carb root veggie if you’re trying to stay away from more starchy vegetables such as white potatoes. Some say that when radishes are roasted really well, they often taste like potatoes!

Radishes are a popular option for those on a Keto Diet and this Roasted Radishes & Carrots recipe is also a simple and easy side dish if you’re on Cycle 3 of the 17 Day Diet.  

This dish can also be used on the 17 Day Kickstart Diet, too. Keep reading as I’ll let you know which phase this is allowed in.

There’s nothing quite like the taste of roasted radishes and carrots.

Ingredients for Roasted Radishes & Carrots

Well, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that you’ll need radishes and carrots in order to make this recipe.

With all kidding aside, you’ll also use a bit of dried thyme and well as salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice to bring a freshness to the dish!

Non-Starchy Vegetable Alternative

Like I mention earlier, radishes are a great alternative to a higher starch content vegetable like potatoes.

When roasted, the flavor of radishes (or any vegetable really) are out of this world.

In fact, I prefer my vegetables roasted most of the time due to the added flavor of the caramelization of the veggies!

For this recipe, you’ll be cutting your vegetables. However, if they are on the smaller side, you can certainly leave them whole.

If you do cut them, there are more opportunities for cut edges to brown, which means more flavor!

Radishes on the 17 Day Diet

If you’re on the 17 Day Diet, radishes are allowed starting in Cycle 3.  

If you’re not sure which foods are allowed when, make sure you take a peek at the 17 Day Diet Cycle 3 Food List.

You can also check out my book on Amazon called Fast Track Your Weight Loss With the 17 Day Diet which has all the food lists (and a 7 day meal plan, too!).

Radishes on the 17 Day Kickstart Diet

Unlike the original 17 Day Diet, radishes can be eaten on the Kickstart Diet from the start.

Starting in the 3-Day Scrub Phase, you’ll see radishes listed on the “Non Starchy Vegetable” section of the 17 Day Kickstart Diet Food List.

However, carrots are allowed starting on the 4-Day Soak Up Phase.

If you want to use this recipe as-is, wait until day 4.

Radishes make a great alternative to white starchy potatoes, especially if you’re on a Keto Diet.

Depending on your macros, you may want to limit the number of carrots you eat (they make great leftovers!).
