What to Do with Jerusalem Artichokes – Real Food Basics

Jerusalem Artichoke (Sunchoke)

Jerusalem artichokes are really high in inulin, a prebiotic fiber that helps reduce constipation, curb appetite, help prevent colon cancer, and improve immunity. Both probiotic fiber and prebiotic fibers are needed for good gut health, and Jerusalem artichokes (also called sunchokes) are a great souce of the important prebiotic fibers that we can easily get too little of in today’s society.

Jerusalem artichokes have a unique flavor to them and work great together with other vegetables in creamy soups. Mashed Jerusalem artichokes is incredibly amazing together with a hearty stew, and roasted Jerusalem artichokes are a fun addition to other roasted vegetables in the oven.

Eggplant is often called “poor man’s meat” because when cooked well it has a little similar taste to meat. My favorite meat & eggplant combination is ground meat and cubed eggplant, fried together with chopped onion in coconut oil. Add some salt, pepper and a bit of cinnamon (sounds weird but it’s really good!).
