Last week I found for the first Jerusalem artichokes in my vegetable package. A quick internet search gave me a few recipes. Since I’ve never eaten Jerusalem artichokes, I was very curious about their taste. My preference went to a recipe where I could taste the pure Jerusalem artichokes. Hence this simple menu:
# 250 g Jerusalem artichokes
# 1 broccoli
# 2 dl water
# vegan butter
# 1 clove of garlic
# Salt, pepper
# 1 tbsp soy sauce
# 1 Tbsp curry
# 50 g nutritional yeast flakes
# 1 Tbsp flour
Clean the Jerusalem artichokes by taking the earth away. For this I used my mushroom brush after that I washed them with water.
Cut the Jerusalem artichokes into slices of about 1 to 2 cm.
Divide the broccoli into florets.
Boil the vegetables together in water with a knob of butter and salt until just tender.
Pour this boiling water into a saucepan, add the flour and bring to a boil while stirring.
If the sauce start to thicken, add the nutritional yeast flakes, curry, crushed garlic, soy sauce and pepper. Keep stirring.
I served this with millet.
Conclusion: we, the adults, liked the taste of the Jerusalem artichokes, the 15-year-old didn’t like them at all. The curry sauce could have been a lot spicier. All together, this was to sober for us.
With the leftovers I made a soup the following day. I added carrots and onions. The whole soup was a bit boosted up with cayenne pepper. I also added some soy creamer. This soup was super tasty.
