Roasted Sunchoke Soup
I came across these lovely Sunchokes in the grocery store. They are pretty versatile, you can eat them raw, roast them or boil them. They have a wonderful artichoke flavor, though not an artichoke at all. They are the root of the sunflower plant. Give them a try! You will be pleasantly surprised. Add them to your roasted vegetable medley for a nice side dish. Thrill all the vegetarians in your life with this yummy vegetable! They are available from about October to March. A great source of iron. Leave the skins on for extra nutrients and texture.
