    This was my first time making sunchokes. They came in my weekly produce delivery and I was looking for a simple way to make them. Well this recipe is simple and delicious! You do not need 3/4c of oil. I probably used the equivalent of 2 -3 tbsp and I can't imagine using any more. Great flavor and perfectly cooked after 35 mins. I'll be making it a point to buy these more often!  -  02 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  09 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe ! I love sunchokes but most recipes call for it peeled and in a creamy soup, so it's nice to have a quick recipe that's a healthier option. Only thing I changed was adding some fresh rosemary from my garden with the thyme. Side note - you might want to take some Beano before indulging in these -- sunchokes can make you more "musical" than beans!! Thanks for the recipe!  -  16 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
