Roasted Sunchoke Salad

sunchokes handful⅓ cup fresh or thawed frozen blueberries
1 small clove garlic
1 sliver ginger (equal to the size of the garlic clove)
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
½ cup oil
¼ tsp. salt, divided
4 to 5 sunchokes, cleaned and sliced into ½-inch strips
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 bunch spinach, thinly shredded
8 ounces feta cheese, thinly sliced

Place blueberries, garlic and ginger in a food processor and process until liquified. While the food processor is still running, slowly add in the vinegar and ½ cup oil. Transfer to a mason jar, add ⅛ teaspoon salt, and shake to combine.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Place sunchoke slices in a pan, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with remaining salt. Cover and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until sunchokes are tender enough to easily be pierced with a fork. Allow sunchokes to cool.

Prepare plates with spinach shreds. Place 4 to 5 sunchoke slices on top of each spinach bed. Place sliced feta on top of sunchoke slices and drizzle with blueberry vinaigrette.
