Sunchoke Quinoa

sunchoke quinoa

When Lucy was born, a friend brought over roasted veggies and it had sunchokes in it. Until that point in time, I hadn’t ever tasted a sunchoke. At least not that I was aware of. Sunchokes are also known as jerusalem artichokes, and they are scrumptious. Kind of a mix between a potato and an artichoke. I love this recipe…very tasty and easy. You can’t go wrong with meals that can be made in one pot! It can be eaten as a main dish with a salad or as a side. Enjoy!

Sunchoke Quinoa
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups veggie broth
1 1/2 cups quinoa
2 T olive oil
1 can chickpeas
1 cup chopped sunchokes (I leave the peels on if they’re organic)
1 can peas
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a 2 qt saucepan over medium heat and saute the onion until translucent. Add the quiona and toast over medium heat until it cracks/pops (3-5 minutes). Add broth and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add chickpeas, sunchokes, peas, and salt/pepper. Simmer covered for 15-20 minutes. Fluff and serve. Top with avocado and sea salt for fun. Yum.
