  • I'm growing sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes) -- thinking they're primal?

    Sis gave me some roots and the more I read about them, the more curious I become

    Tiny Urban Kitchen: Sunchoke Chips (Jerusalem Artichoke)

    Jerusalem Artichoke Soup
    Butter
    A few Shallots
    Jerusalem Artichokes
    Broth
    Heavy Cream
    Salt & Pepper

    Sautee the shallots, in butter until soft.
    Add peeled and chopped Jerusalem artichokes,
    add broth and cream and cook until soft.
    Blend until smooth, and taste with salt and pepper.

    Yep.... primal.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

      Artichokes are a good source of probiotics, so they're great for gut health.
      F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

        Yeah, this... you may not want to eat huge portions of them to start with, no matter how tasty you find them. They can be known to cause some intestinal distress (gas and quick-step) in people not used to them.
        Great for gut health, but may take some adjustment while your intestinal flora adjusts.
        Maybe it won't be as much of an issue for someone without "SAD" gut.

          So pleased to see that they are primal. I picked up a bag today at our farmers market assuming they were primal. They've been added to the pot roast for dinner tonight.

            That's sorta scary -- about test your body's reaction to them by eating only a few.
            If anyone has a severe "reaction" -- I'd like to know.

                LOVE them! They're delicious roasted, make stunning soup, lovely lightly steamed and added to a creamy sauce with dill (or with cheese and no dill), excellent added to potato to mash; so many ways to use them. They do tend to cause flatulence! But if you keep eating them, that seems to stop. Don't know why....

                      Oh well -- people are quite happy eating BEANS and they do the same thing!
                      I'll definitely give sunchokes a try!

                        Very primal. Indeed, thanks for the recipe; I'm trying to decimate the population in my yard.

                          I read they can take over an area when grown outside. I'm just wondering "how fast" and where I should locate my "patch."

                            They're good at lowering sugar levels in a diabetic.
                            Finally started starting the diet - 5/8/12.
