Rustic Sunchoke Mash

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

When sunchokes get the mashed potato treatment, their artichoke-like flavor comes to the forefront. If you don’t have a lot of sunchokes, use an equal amount of potatoes to fill out the recipe.
  • 1 lb. small unpeeled sunchokes, halved
  • ¾ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp. grated nutmeg
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh chives, for garnish

1. Place sunchokes in medium pot with broth and garlic. Bring broth to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, partially covered, 15 minutes, or until very tender.

2. Mash sunchokes and garlic to chunky-smooth consistency with potato masher. Stir in butter, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chives.
