Sunchoke with Olive Oil Recipe
I want to share a super light and healthy recipe with you today. I love sunchoke in every form. I eat it both raw and cooked. Sunchoke is an interesting creature in that it tastes more like a fruit when eaten raw and more like a vegetable when cooked. I'm pretty sure some of you have never eaten or even heard of it before. Well, I'm glad to be the one who introduced you since this low in calorie, high in fiber root is quite rich when it comes to health benefits. It has a distinctly sweet, rooty and slightly nutty flavor. It's ideal for people who are trying to lose weight since it's low calorie and very filling at the same time.
