Hot and Spicy Sesame Sunchokes

  • Yield 4 servings

Sunchokes are a tuber that can be used much as potatoes are used. Here they’re sautéed with sesame oil and other Asian flavors.

This recipe can also be enjoyed chilled the next day.

Ingredients

2 teaspoons olive or canola oil
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed dried red pepper flakes or small jalapeno, minced
1 pound peel-on sunchokes, thinly sliced
Water, as needed
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Heat both oils in a large nonstick saute pan or skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and pepper flakes; saute 30 seconds until garlic begins to turn light brown. Add sunchokes and stir well to combine. Saute 3 minutes, adding a drop of water, if needed, to prevent sticking. Add soy sauce, vinegar and sesame seeds. Continue to saute 1 minute and serve.
