Something new…Jerusalem artichokes ⁉️

I recently got Jerusalem artichokes a.k.a sunchokes. I have never tried them, but heard they have many health benefits (has a prebiotic effect, can help with digestive problems, etc.) So why not to try this little magic fella 😊

I used them to make some vegetable crock pot (again! I know, I know, but lately I’m just obsessed with crock pots 😀)

Ingredients:

  • Jerusalem artichokes ~ 200 g
  • 2 medium carrots 🥕
  • 5 broccoli florets
  • Edamame beans ~ 50 g
  • Fennel ~ 80g
  • A quarter of green chili 🌶
  • Salt, pepper
  • Olive oil ~ 3 tbsp.
  • Organic crushed tomatoes sauce 🍅

Preheat oven to 185*C. Chop artichokes, carrots and fennel into medium pieces and put everything into a crock pot. Add edamame beans, broccoli florets and fine chopped chili and mix all the ingredients with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Cook for 45 minutes, stirring once in a while.

Add crushed tomatoes and more salt and pepper (if needed). Cook for extra 45 minutes or until artichokes and carrots are crisp – tender (I personally like different texture veggies in my casserole).

Can be served with some grilled chicken or salmon , or enjoyed alone with crème fraîche 🍴

Bon Appetite!
