Also called Jerusalem Artichoke, this delicious tuber related to sunflowers is crisp with a nutty flavour. Can be eaten raw, baked, roasted, fried, chipped, souped or many other ways. Great nutrition, but one of our favorites because of stellar taste!
"One cup of sliced, raw Jerusalem artichokes (about 150g) has 117 calories, 3.0g protein, 26.2g of carbohydrates, 2.4g fiber, 14.4g sugar, and no significant amounts of fat. Jerusalem artichokes are an excellent source of potassium and a good source of iron.
Also of nutritional note is a particular fiber that Jerusalem artichoke contains in abundance, called inulin. Inulin is a type of soluble fiber that balances blood sugar, and also acts as a prebiotic." Source: https://www.precisionnutrition.com/encyclopedia/food/jerusalem-artichoke
