Roast Jerusalem Artichoke
First things first.
Deceptively named Jerusalem Artichokes don’t originate from Jerusalem.
Although they resemble a potato you can actually eat them raw.
They have a natural sweetness to them which comes from the special prebiotic fibre they contain – inulin.
Jerusalem artichokes have a reputation for giving you gas.
Well now that you’ve whet your appetite, let’s take a look at this pretty tasty recipe and see just why it work! Firstly, the soy sauce balances the natural sweetness and gives a big hit of umami flavour. Next roasting helps break down some of the inulin. While you’ll still be giving your good-guy bacteria some fibre that they love to munch on, you’ll be significantly reducing the potential for ending up with gas.
