Seasonal local food recipe No.349 – Jerusalem artichokes a la provencalePosted on January 29th, 2017 No comments
This quick and easy recipe was given to me by Joan, an ex-colleague who was very fond of Jerusalem artichokes. We’ve got plenty in our veg boxes this week thanks to the Hoare family at Restharrow Farm, Trebetherick in north Cornwall. I have no idea where she got the idea from, possibly Elizabeth David.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20-30 minutes
500 g Jerusalem artichokes
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
Boil the artichokes in salted water, straining them before they are quite cooked. Cut them in halves and sauté them gently in a little olive oil with the tomatoes, garlic, and chives and parsley.Seasonal local food recipes cornwall, elizabeth david, Jerusalem artichokes, local food, restharrow farm, trebetherick
