VeganMoFo: Jerusalem Artichokes aka Sunchoke



Chipotle Black Bean, Acorn Squash + Millet Veggie Burger w. Avocado Spread
Jerusalem Artichoke and Potato French Fries
Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts




I made a kickass dinner tonight and am almost out of all the food I purchased last Sunday which is a miracle. I need to make it last until tuesday morning when I leave for my parents house for Thanksgiving. Anyway...the veggie burger..shallots, garlic and carrots finely chopped and sauteed in olive oil, throw in some spices such as cumin, chili powder, tumeric, paprika. Add a can of black beans drained and rinsed and a chopped chipotle pepper. Scoop out an acorn squash you roasted in the oven 2 days ago. Add some millet you cook even more than 2 days ago for another veggie burger. Salt, pepper and mush together. Maybe add some bread crumbs if it's a bit wet..form into patties. Lightly fry in olive oil. Serve on delicious ciabatta rolls w. avocado spread (avocado, lemon, cumin, chipotle adobo sauce, salt blended in blender. Eat...with the addition of a thinly sliced red onion you found all alone in the fridge.

Now about the delicious Jerusalem Artichoke..aka..Sunchoke. I love these things. I don't remember when I first heard about them or had one. It must have been when I was in culinary school and was making trips to the Union Square farmers market 3 times a week.

Health Benefits of the choke are as follows: it is a superior source of inulin, a natural fructose that is medicinal for diabetics. it relives asthmatic conditions and nourishes the lungs and apparently helps in the constipation department. It contains the vitamins A and B-complex, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium. That's a lot of good stuff coming from a root vegetable that doesn't contain starch.

The j.choke is at it's peak season now thru winter so look for it the next time you go shopping..it's delicious fried like a french fry or used with potatoes or other root vegetables in a gratin.

Thta looks fantastic. I love jerusalem artichokes but I mostly make soup with them. Those brussels sprouts are calling my name: Eat us Emmie, eat us!

This looks incredibly filling. Kinda reminds me of the old diner-type food they have in movies where all the food looks great, only this is much healthier and I'm sure even more delicious.

I haven't had artichokes in ages - this "kick-ass dinner" of yours (PERFECT title!!) has inspired me to pick up some 'chokes at Whole Foods!! :0D

WOW. What a fantastic dinner! I'd love to sink my teeth into that burger. So interesting to learn more about Jerusalem Artichokes. I've seen them in veggie shops but have yet to try them.
