Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes

The Jerusalem artichoke... Subtly sweet, earthy, a real treat. 

The value in working with sunchokes is that they cook quickly and can be prepared in a variety of ways. My favorite technique to use is simply roast them. A medium diced sunchoke will cook up in 15 minutes of less, so its a great choice when looking to get food on the table in 30 minutes of less.
