Jerusalem artichokes with rosemary, lemon and pecans

Posted Jun 06 2011 12:00am
 

Sometimes the ingredients that are only available for a short period of time are even more fascinating and intriguing than those that you see more throughout the year. Jerusalem artichokes definitely belong to this category of more rare veggies and I go mad about them as soon as I first see them hitting the markets. I think this delicious root vegetable is actually a bit misunderstood and underrated. Packed with iron, Jerusalem artichokes are a perfect veggie to add into your everyday meals, so embrace these gems and make most of them when they are available.
This simple dish is a celebration of seasonal flavours. I've adapted Terry Walter's recipe and I think this is a superbly delicious way to savour Jerusalem artichokes. I've pared them with garlic, lemon and fresh rosemary and served with baby spinach and toasted pecans this makes a delicious lunch for one or a nice side dish for two.
