Sunchokes Roasted with Rosemary



I have been getting produce direct from local farms recently, and one just up the road had sunchokes available and since I had never tried them before I figured why not. Sunchokes are a tubular-shaped, root vegetable of the sunflower plant family in season from late fall through early spring. They look a little like ginger, they are a great source of iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Here is a super easy recipe for them, they are unique and very different from potatoes much more nutty in flavor profile with a nice crunch.


Ingredients
  • about 10 sun chokes, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary 
  • a dash of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste 
Method:

  1. heat the oven to 400F 
  2. slice the sun chokes, add olive oil, salt and pepper and rosemary 
  3. roast for about 25-30 minutes

Split Pea Soup



This is an easy soup made with dried split peas, I soaked these for about 2 hours to soften them, at this uncertain time of coronavirus/ covid 19 with many of us at home, dried peas, lentils and beans (also canned) come in handy.

Eggplant and Chard Shakshuka



I often make egg curry and love shakshuka they are similar in concept with a different flavor profile. I love that with this recipe you can add vegetables and it has a nice smokiness to it.
