Knowledge Drop | True or false: a sunchoke is the meaty base of a sunflower.
FALSE! It's actually a root vegetable of the sunflower plant family. Did we getcha? ;)
Often referred to as Jerusalem Artichokes, the oddly shaped root has no relation to Jerusalem but we do however think their flavor profile is somewhat similar to that of an artichoke heart. We still prefer to call them sunchokes and think of them as sort of a less starchy potato.
Not only are they earthy and delicious, they also boast a high nutritional profile rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and the carbohydrate inulin, which helps to keep blood and glucose levels stable, makin' you feel "good as hell!" For best results, we recommend crankin' up some Lizzo tunes, closing your eyes and fully immersing yourself in the decadent savory goodness. *tosses hair*
