Here are the ingredients you'll need:
- About half a Jerusalem artichoke per person (1 if they are small)
- Half an onion
- A handful of roasted hazelnuts
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- The juice of a lemon
- A couple of pomegranate seeds (optional)
Here's the method:
Slice the onion finely.
Place the slices in an empty jam jar or a glass.
Zest and juice the lemon on the onions (ideally wait about 15 minutes before using it. It will keep very well in the fridge if you don’t use everything).
Roast the hazelnuts in a pan (about 5 minutes without oil) and let them cool down.
In a plate or small bowl, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice (more or less according to your taste) and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
Peel the Jerusalem artichokes, and slice them very finely. Place the slices in the lemon and olive oil mix as you go to prevent them from browning.
Once you’ve sliced everything, drizzle with a bit more olive oil (we say A LOT).
Add the pickled onions, the pomegranate seeds and the roasted hazelnuts roughly crushed.
