Keto Bacon Fried Radishes

Eating keto has definitely opened me up to some new food experiences. Take this dish for example. It looks like fried potatoes. Guess what? It also tastes like fried potatoes. But it's not potatoes. 
But seriously. 
Radishes are a great low carb substitute for potatoes and, in dishes like this, are magic. 
Okay.... if we are being totally honest the first bite or two is a little weird because you know it's not potatoes but your brain is still trying to figure things out. But then, as you continue eating, it gets more and more like fried potatoes. 
I can't wait to try more radish as faux potatoes recipes. 

Keto Bacon Fried Radishes

1 1/2 lbs large radishes, stems cut off
1 clove garlic, minced
8 pieces bacon, chopped in approx 1 inch pieces
salt & pepper
1 Tbsp dried parsley

Wash and trim the radishes. 

Quarter the radishes (or half them if smaller). Put the minced garlic in with the radishes. 

In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Add in the radishes and garlic. 

Fry about 10  minutes, until radishes soften. Season with salt and pepper and parsley. 

Serve hot. 
According to MyFitnessPal, one serving (Recipe makes 4 servings) is: 109 calories, 7.9 fat, 6.4 carbs, 5 protein, and 0.1 fiber. (6.3 net carbs). 
Totally looks like fried, red, new potatoes, am I right? And with that bacon and garlic, soooooooooooo good! From start to finish in about 20 minutes. Gotta love quick and easy!
