Bake

Bake for about 30-45 minutes.

Nuts, garlic, olives

Meanwhile, make a pesto. I made this hazelnut pesto but feel free to make your own. Place hazelnuts, garlic and olives in a blender and pulse, adding olive oil.

Oil, arugula, basil

Add olive oil and pulse, then add arugula and basil and give it a good blend. I picked the leaves from 2 good sized stems of basil for this.

A splash of white wine vinegar to brighten it up just a notch.

Top sunchokes with pesto and serve

Cool. Now just set the sunchokes in a blender and spoon a little of that beautiful green sauce over the top.
