The sunchoke, also known as the Jerusalem artichoke, is a tuber that is in the same family as the sunflower and is actually not too similar to conventional artichokes at all! These veggies are high in iron, fiber, and B vitamins and have an earthy, nutty flavor that you can eat raw, grilled, roasted, sautéed, or boiled. In this recipe, roasted sunchokes are combined with apples along with a bit of spice and herbs to make a tasty side dish that is perfect for fall! Plus, it seems fancy since the sunchoke has not yet become a ubiquitous addition to the average table.
