I was so excited when one of my favorite but rarely consumed veggies made its way into my CSA pick-up: the sunchoke! Also known as a Jerusalem artichoke, the tuber is neither from Jerusalem nor related to the artichoke. However, its starchy, flavorful meat is thoroughly delectable. If you ever come across a sunchoke, I highly recommend you give it a try. (And for the ginger averse like myself, not to worry – it does not taste like ginger at all!)
For a super easy preparation, you will need:
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- Olive oil
Scrub sunchoke well, and thinly slice. Saute with garlic in olive oil until sunchoke slices are browned. Flip pieces over as needed.
