Despite their name, sunchokes, aka Jerusalem artichokes, have nothing at all to do with Jerusalem and are not, in fact, artichokes. Rather, this nutty and slightly sweet tuber is a type of sunflower and received its name from the Italian word for the plant, “girasole.” When thinly sliced and roasted, sunchokes become irresistibly crispy and pair perfectly with hearty kale and quinoa.
