These delicious roasted Jerusalem artichokes are served with my yummy vegan watercress mayo. Such a simple dish with maximum flavour.
Jerusalem artichokes have a short season in the UK (from February to April), so enjoy them while you can! They are quite versatile and I love them in soups, bakes, pies and salads.
Whenever I lack inspiration about what to make for dinner, roasting a few vegetables is often an easy option. I often improvise by adding any leftover grains, beans or pulses I have laying around in the fridge.
For this recipe, I decided to make a vegan watercress mayo that has a delicious peppery taste and creamy texture. This is the perfect condiment to perk up roasted Jerusalem artichokes.
The mayonnaise is quick and easy to make and requires no eggs as they are substituted with aquafaba (chickpea brine). Aquafaba acts as a thickener to give this vegan mayo its silky smooth consistency. You can make it while the Jerusalem artichokes are roasting in the oven. Any leftover will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for a week or so.
How to roast Jerusalem artichokes
Jerusalem artichokes are a pain to peel! Instead, you can simply wash them with water and brush them thoroughly to remove any dirt that is hiding around their knobbly bits.
When the Jerusalem artichokes are clean, cut them into thumb-size chunks and place them on an oven tray drizzled with some olive oil.
With an oven temperature at 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark 4, Jerusalem artichokes should take between 30-40mins until they are soft and golden. Simply season them to taste and enjoy!
In this recipe, I added a few thyme sprigs and some garlic for extra flavour.
