Ingredients

  • 1 pound sunchokes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, optional*
  • 1/3 cup hazelnuts roasted, skinned and coarsley chopped**
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Cut the sunchokes crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces and place them on the prepared sheet pan.  If you have a strangely shaped sunchoke, do your best to chop it into similar sized pieces so they all roast evenly.  Next, toss the sunchokes with olive oil.
  • Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring once halfway through, until golden brown and fork tender.  Sunchokes can quickly turn mushy if roasted too long, so keep a close eye on them the last 5 minutes of roasting.
  • Remove the sunchokes from the oven and place them in a large bowl.  Toss with lemon juice, toasted hazelnuts and parsley.  Season with salt and pepper if desired.  Enjoy!

Notes

*Nutrition facts are calculated using olive oil.  If you would like to roast these without oil, drizzle a couple tablespoons of water over the sunchokes before roasting.
