I found some Jerusalem artichokes in my market a few weeks ago, and then time got away from me and they remained… in my fridge.
So when I realized my FoodBuzz 24×24 Gluten-Free Puff Pastry Party was a little light on the veg, it went into a pot with some kohlrabi, onions, garlic and tumeric. I’d normally use this combo as a side or puree for something extremely rich and hearty, but as I like my vegetables simple and clean, this combo still satisfied me.
- 1/2 lb Jerusalem artichokes
- 4 small kohlrabi
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 5 cloves of garlic, smashed
- 1 2″ piece of tumeric, chopped fine
- 2 Tbsp butter
Boil the artichokes until soft, then peel off the skins with your hands (easier than peeling). Mash.
Peel and boil the kohlrabi until fork-tender. Chop small.
In a small pan, heat olive oil. Add onion, garlic and tumeric and cook until soft. Add the butter, artichokes and kohlrabi, and mix to combine and heat through.
If desired, puree until smooth with a hand blender.
