Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, sliced (1/8-inch thick slices) Sunchokes (approximately 1 1/4 pounds before peeling)
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Ginger
  • 2 large Garlic Cloves , minced
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Cornstarch
  • ¾ cup dried Bread Crumbs*
  • ¼ cup diced Pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 1 quart casserole or gratin dish.
  • In a saucepan combine sunchokes, ¾ cup PLUS 2 tablespoons of the cream, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper over medium-low heat, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Let cook 5 minutes once hot to combine all flavors and soften the sunchokes.
  • Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream with cornstarch; stir to fully combine. 
  • Add to sunchoke mixture in saucepan and continue to cook 5-8 minutes (over medium-low heat) longer until the mixture begins to thicken.
  • In a small bowl combine the bread crumbs and pecans and stir to fully mix together.
  • Spoon the sunchoke mixture into the prepared baking pan. Cover the top evenly with bread/pecan mixture.
  • Place the baking dish of sunchokes in a larger roasting pan. Fill with hot water to reach halfway up the side of the baking dish to create a water bath.
  • Bake until done when top becomes golden brown; about 20-25 minutes. NOTE: if the topping begins to over brown, place foil on top and continue cooking.
