Roasted Sunchokes

Serves 4

  • 1 ¼ pounds small sunchokes, scrubbed and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tbs olive oil, divided
  • ½ tsp kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 to 4 cloves of garlic
  • 4 rosemary sprigs
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Combine sunchokes, 1 tbs olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss well to coat. 
  3. Heat 1 tbs oil in large skillet (cast iron is best) over medium-high heat
  4. Arrange sunchokes, cut side down, in pan until they start to brown (about 5 minutes).
  5. If using a cast iron skillet, arrange garlic and rosemary evenly over sunchokes. If using a regular skillet, transfer ingredients to a baking dish and arrange as described (but add a little additional oil to the dish to prevent sticking). Place cast iron skillet or baking dish in oven and roast at 375° for 40 minutes or until sunchokes are tender and deep golden. 
  6. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp salt.
