Rob’s Recipe of the Week: Crispy artichokes

December 12, 2019 by General Administrator

I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a Jerusalem Artichoke before, but they’re coming in the share next¬†week! After a bit of searching around it seems like roasting is the most common way to eat them and this recipe sounds like a good introduction. Anyone who’s had them before please feel free to suggest other ideas!

Ingredients (scalable)

  • 800g Jerusalem artichokes
  • 1 garlic bulb, cut down the middle
  • 1 tbsp rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed (or other) oil
  • pinch ground mace (Comes from nutmeg shells, so I will probably just substitute nutmeg)
  • 20g butter
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Method
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Soak the artichokes in cold water for 20 mins or so to loosen any dirt, then scrub them with a scourer, being sure to remove any grit. Halve the small ones and quarter the bigger ones, and put them in a roasting tin with the split garlic bulb and rosemary. Coat everything with the oil and season. Roast for 45-50 mins until tender inside and crispy outside.

To finish, squeeze the softened garlic cloves from their skins and toss with the roasted artichokes, along with the mace, butter and lemon juice.
