Roasted Jerusalem Artichoke or Sunchoke (Dairy, Gluten and Grain Free)
On the weekend we went to check out the Kingston Farmer's Market. I was very happy to see that there are several organic farmers participating. I was even more pleased to see that one of them was selling Jerusalem Artichokes. I LOVE these and hadn't had any in about a year.
The Jerusalem Artichoke, also known as Sunchoke is neither from Jerusalem or an artichoke. Although they share a similar flavour to an artichoke, they are actually related to a sunflower. Nonetheless, this brown, knobby root is super delicious. It is an excellent source of potassium and magnesium and works as a prebiotic to help balance your gut system. There are many ways to eat the sunchoke however, my preference is just to roast them.
