Sautéed Sunchokes with Sunflower Seeds

Serves: 4

1 1/2 Pounds sunchokes, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds

2 Tablespoons sunflower seed oil

3 Tablespoons sunflower seeds, toasted

2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped

1 Teaspoon chopped thyme

Salt and pepper to taste

Sauté the sunchokes in the oil in a large skillet over high heat until lightly browned and tender, but still a bit crisp. Taste them as they cook; they can be done in 5 minutes or as many as 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, add the sunflower seeds, parsley, and thyme, and toss well.
