1.5 lbs small sunchokes, scrubbed
1 head garlic, with large cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp chopped chives
flakey sea salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a baking tray with aluminum foil (You can also leave the baking sheet bare).
Step 2: Fill a large pot halfway with water and season generously with salt. Add the sunchokes and bring to a boil. Allow boiling for 10 minutes. Drain with a strainer and allow to cool for 10 more minutes.
Step 3: While sunchokes are cooling, mince 4 cloves of garlic and whisk into olive oil. Cut the bottom off remaining cloves of garlic and separate with skin intact and place on a baking tray.
