    Jerusalem artichokes with mozzarella and herb salsa

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour 5 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    800g Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed
    100ml extra virgin olive oil, plus 2 tbsp
    60g walnuts
    40g blanched almonds
    1 garlic clove, chopped
    ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, leaves only
    ½ x 25g pack basil, leaves only
    ½ lemon, zest
    2 x 125g balls buffalo mozzarella

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Quarter or halve the Jerusalem artichokes so they are all an even size. Put in a roasting tin with 2 tbsp oil, season and toss to coat. Cover with foil and roast for 50 minutes, then uncover and roast for 10-15 minutes until tender, with slightly crisp skin.

    2. Meanwhile, make the herb salsa. Put the walnuts and almonds on a baking tray and roast for about 5 minutes, until a shade darker and aromatic. Once cool, put in a food processor with the garlic, herbs and lemon zest. Whizz to a paste, scraping down the sides as needed. Tip into a bowl and whisk in the remaining 100ml oil; season.

    3. To serve, drain the mozzarella and halve each ball. Arrange on a plate with the salsa and roasted Jerusalem artichokes. Serve immediately.
