What are Sunchokes?
Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes (Helianthus tuberosus), are mildly sweet and nutty with starchiness similar to a potato. The root of the beautiful flower is low calorie and nutrient dense making it a wonderful alternative to the traditional potato chip. These flowers can be grown outside of your Dome during the summer months to attract pollinators and the roots can be harvested in the fall for consumption.
Rosemary is a cold hardy plant that thrives in the Dome through the winter months! It adds a woodsy, earthy flavor and has been long praised for its medical benefits. Rosemary is often used fresh or dried as a flavoring in Mediterranean dishes. Here we have paired it with creamy white beans and nutty roasted garlic to create a delicious dip.
For Sunchoke Chips:
- 6 – 8 sunchokes
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Salt to taste
- 1 head of garlic
- 2 cans of white beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves
- 1 tbsp lemon juice (½ lemon)
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (to tase)
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp salt and black pepper (to taste)
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- ⅓ cup cold water
- Drizzle of olive oil
- 1 tsp chives
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the top ¼” off the head of garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake for 60 minutes.
Add white beans, lemon juice, garlic, and seasonings to the food processor. Pulse while slowly adding in the olive oil and then water. The cold water will help create a creamy texture. Blend until smooth.
Slice sunchokes using a mandolin on the #2 setting (about an ⅛” thick). Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F. Toss sunchokes in olive oil. Place in a thin layer in the air fryer basket. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove onto a wire rack and sprinkle with salt. Repeat until all the sunchokes are fried.
Serve dip with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh chives. You will have extra to serve alongside a fresh vegetable tray.
