Spicy Sunchoke Dip

On the Harmony Valley Farm CSA Yahoo Group lately people have been praising this dip from Sunset made from sunchokes. Usually I just roast my sunchokes so I was happy to find a new use.

I didn't have the jalapenos the recipe called for so I decided to add Siriracha instead replacing both the garlic & jalapenos. I had half a red onion in the fridge so in it went. I thought the dip was a little too spicy & needed a touch of tartness so I added some plain yogurt. The end result a spicy creamy dip that is slightly similar to hummus but with a kick.

Spicy Sunchoke Dip

12 - 16 oz sunchokes, peeled, larger ones cubes
1 1/2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 T olive oil
1/2 to 1 T Siriracha
1/2 red onion, coarsely chopped
3 heaping T plain yogurt
salt

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the sunchokes & cook for 12 minutes until soft. Drain.

Add everything but the salt to a food processor. Process until smooth. Salt to taste.

Serve with tortilla chips.

about 1 1/2 cups

Looks delicious - but I've never heard of a sunchoke. We certainly don't get them in the uk

Interesting... I've never cooked with sunchokes before.

Any of the...ahem, digestive issues they have been talking about on the HVF site?

Yum! I haven't had it as a dip but I think that would be delicious.

looks like an awesome dip, kat! i've certainly never had sunchokes in that form, and the sriracha is a great addition!

I have never had sunchokes. I have to try them. I always learn something from your blog.

I've never had a sunchoke, but this sure does look good!

Kat, the use of Sriracha alone makes this a winner for me. The colour is pretty too!
