Sunchoke - Coke Farm Recipes

Servings:

4-6

Vegetables:

  • Sunchokes

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 pound sunchokes
  • Oil to coat (omit additional oil if roasted with meat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (or garlic salt, my prefernce

Directions:

  1. Scrub sunchokes and cut them, if large, so pieces are about the same size for even cooking.
  2. Place sunchokes in baking dish and drizzle with oil, salt, and pepper. Turn to coat evenly. Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 30-45 min.
  3. This recipe is very simple. You can roast the sunchokes along with any meat you're roasting. Just add them to the roasting pan about 30 min. before meat is done. Turn them in pan juices so they are covered with oil. Sunchokes should be soft throughout, but not mushy. Pierce with a sharp knife to test.

Variation:

Roast several root vegetables in a medley, e.g. potatoes, celery root, beets, parsnip, burdock etc. Proceed same as above.

"I remember our first visit to Coke Farm in 2013. We were just getting started on 5 acres of organic crops. The grower team at Coke Farm listened to us, and we felt that they saw us as farmers, not as small farmers or beginning farmers, just farmers who needed a hand in marketing their product."
