  • 1/2lb Jerusalem Artichokes
  • Rub with olive oil and bake in a casserole at 375 for 20 to 30 min.
  • Steam:
  • 1/2 bunch chard (stems removed, or spinach)

 

In a food processor or blender, blend artichokes and chard with the following:

 

1/8 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 small lemon

Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes

  • 1/2 lb Jerusalem artichokes, peel (optional) and cut to uniform size
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 T parsley, minced
  • salt, hot sauce to taste

Toss the Jerusalem artichokes in the olive oil in a roasting pan large enough to hold them with space in between the pieces. Scatter in the garlic and roast in a preheated 475ยบ oven until tender, about 15 minutes, tossing at least once about halfway through. Run under the broiler for a few minute to brown the edges, watching carefully.

Add the butter and parsley and toss to coat. Season with salt and hot sauce and serve immediately.
