jeruselem artichoke chips

They are not from Jerusalem, nor are they artichokes. Calling them sunroots or sunchokes seems more reasonable, as Jerusalem artichoke is a species of sunflower. Anyway, they are delicious and they make great chips.

  • 1 tsp. of coarse sea salt

  • Wash and dry the sunchokes, thinly slice them.
  • Whisk olive oil with sea salt and thyme.
  • Brush chips with olive oil and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Roast at 180C for about 15 minutes, flipping chips halfway through baking.
