Dishing Up the Dirt

Honey & Soy Glazed Radishes

I’m smitten with glazed vegetables–they are versatile and simple to prepare. If I’m making a side dish to share with friends who are preparing other food then I’ll serve them on their own. However, if Taylor and I are dining alone we’ll usually serve our glazed veggies with rice and a protein source–in this case a fried egg. However, grilled chicken, fish or even tofu would be a great addition to this simple meal. These radishes are incredibly tender and have a lovely balance of sweet and salty. I used the radish tops as well and they were a great addition to this tasty dish.

Honey & Soy Glazed Radishes

Prep Time: 10 min    Cook Time: 15 min    Serves: 2

  • 1 bunch of radishes, with greens
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • fried eggs for serving


  1. Separate the greens from the radishes and roughly chop them. Slice large radishes in half and keep smaller radishes whole.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the radishes and cook, stirring often until lightly browned and crisp tender, about 10 minutes. Add the honey and reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring often, until the radishes are glazed, about 3-5 minutes. Add the soy sauce and cook until syrupy, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in the rice vinegar and radish greens, increase the heat to high and continue to cook until the greens are wilted and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Serve with cooked white rice and fried eggs.
