Jerusalem Artichoke Hummus with Spiced Oil

  • SERVINGS: 8
  • HEALTHY
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  • VEGETARIAN

Tangy Jerusalem artichokes, also known as sunchokes, are really a variety of sunflower. Buy ones that are roughly the same size so they'll cook evenly.

The spiced oil needs to sit overnight, so plan accordingly. Any leftover oil is great drizzled on bean salads, roasted vegetables or pizza.

  1. 1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  3. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  4. 2 teaspoons hot paprika
  5. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 12 medium pita breads, cut into 8 wedges each
  7. 2 pounds Jerusalem artichokes
  8. One 19-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  9. 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  10. 1/3 cup sesame tahini
  11. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  12. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  13. 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. In a small skillet, stir the fennel and coriander seeds over moderate heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the crushed pepper and paprika and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds longer.
  2. Transfer the spices to a blender. Add the oil and blend until almost smooth. Pour the spiced oil into a jar, cover and let stand overnight at room temperature. Strain the oil through cheesecloth and discard the spices.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375°. Spread the pitas on 2 large baking sheets and toast for about 12 minutes, or until crisp.
  4. Spread the Jerusalem artichokes on a rimmed baking sheet, cover tightly with foil and bake until tender, about 45 minutes to 1 1/4 hours, depending on their size. Remove them as they are done and let cool to room temperature. Using a small metal spoon, scoop out and reserve the flesh, discarding the skins.
  5. In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic. Add the Jerusalem artichokes, tahini and lemon juice and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste and let stand for at least 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.
  6. Spoon the hummus into a bowl, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the spiced oil and garnish with the parsley. Serve the crisp pita chips alongside.
