Roasted Jerusalem Artichoke Or Sunchoke (Dairy, Gluten and Grain Free)

By Irene Shaver @hhwife
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.
Roasted Jerusalem Artichoke or Sunchoke (Dairy, Gluten and Grain Free) The Jerusalem Artichoke, also known as Sunchoke is neither from Jerusalem or an artichoke.  Although they share a similar flavor 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.
