Oven Roasted Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichokes) Recipe

Oven Roasted Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichokes) Recipe

If you're looking for an alternative to oven-roasted potatoes, but want a nutty root vegetable you can roast and prepare much in the same way, look no further than the sunchoke—also known as Jerusalem artichoke.

The Jerusalem artichoke, or sunchoke, is actually the thickened underground part of a stem (a tuber) of a breed of sunflowers. Hence, the name sunchoke. This vegetable is mildly sweet, crunchy, and nutty, almost like a cross between potato and jicama.

In this sunchokes recipe, the veggie's natural sweetness is balanced by the saltiness of the soy sauce during the roasting process. Olive oil lends flavor (use a good one) and helps them stay moist but also develop a nice crispy coating, much like oven-roasted potatoes. Serve alongside a roasted potato or pork tenderloin, or with your favorite steak preparation.

Ingredients

2 pounds sunchokes

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

Salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Sunchokes are an excellent prebiotic for your gut bacteria. If you aren't in the habit of feeding the beneficial bacteria in your gut, they will go crazy with the sudden feast. Therefore go slowly when first introducing sunchokes into your diet.

You will get severe gas if you don't introduce sunchokes slowly into your diet.
