Roasted Sunchokes with Salsa Verde

  • Author: Sabrina Russo
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


These roasted sunchokes are browned and crispy on the outside, and creamy in the center. They’re finished off with a bright salsa verde.


  • 2 lb sunchokes (aka Jerusalem artichokes), scrubbed, sliced in half lengthwise, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, or enough to coat

Salsa verde:

  • 3 anchovies
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed in garlic press
  • 1 ½ tbsp capers, roughly chopped
  • 1/cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp lemon
  • Kosher salt


  1. Heat oven: Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Season: Place sunchokes on a baking sheet. Season with oil and salt, and toss to coat. Arrange flesh-side down.
  3. Roast: Place on the center rack of the oven. Flip when well-browned on bottom, about 10-15 minutes. Roast an additional 10-20 minutes, or until all pieces are browned on both sides, and creamy in the center.
  4. Broil: If the sunchokes aren’t as browned as desired before they’re cooked through, turn them flesh-side up and place under the broiler until you reach desired color. You can also brown them flesh-side down in a hot pan on the stove top.
  5. Make anchovy paste: While the sunchokes roast, use a mortar and pestle to combine the anchovies and garlic to a paste-like texture. You can also use a small food processor, or a knife and cutting board.
  6. Make salsa verde: In a bowl, combine the anchovy mixture, capers and parsley. Stir in oil and lemon. Season with salt, to taste.
  7. Serve: Plate sunchokes and spoon over salsa verde, and enjoy.
