"This is a super-easy way to cook these vegetables if you've never tried them before and by far my favorite. Jerusalem artichokes, or sunchokes, are starchy tubers like potatoes and turnips. When roasted, the skin becomes flaky and the flesh becomes tender, but the taste of a sunchoke is slightly nutty and sweet. Cooked sunchokes are best when eaten within 2 days. When raw, they store well in your fridge's vegetable bin, wrapped loosely in a paper towel. Enjoy!"

Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes)
sea salt to taste
I saw sunchokes in my local farmers market and decided to be adventurous so of course I came to allrecipes to find out how to make them! This recipe was very simple and the results were yummy! My only modification was to spray the sunchoke slices with olive oil (using my misto) and toss with the herbs since we're trying to eat healthier. Can't say I missed the extra oil so I will continue to make the sunchokes this way and will definitely experiment with different herbs in the future (garlic and rosemary are next)! Thanks qwertycook for a simple and delicious recipe!
These were great. First time we've tried Jerusalem Artichokes. We just washed and halved them and cut the eyes off as suggested. No need to use 3/4 cup of oil, a few tablespoons did the trick. Just enough to make the herbs stick. Don't overoast, just till they are tender. Delicious and different.
This was the first time we had sunchokes. I highly recommend them. They were like a nice sweet tasting potato. But not like a sweet potato. However, too much olive oil called for here. They really only get coated and a couple of tablespoons will do that. They also took more like an hour and a bit. We used fresh thyme because we had it. I will do this again but not that much EVOO. 3 stars for the idea but sorry, the measurements and time were very off in my opinion.
