If you’ve never had sunchokes you must give them a try! These tubers are actually a species of sunflower plants and are one of my all-time favorite veggies, in season during the fall and winter months. This delicious root veggie has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and is packed with health benefits! They are a good source of iron and potassium, vitamins A, C, E, high in fiber, low in calories and are an exceptional prebiotic that supports beneficial intestinal bacteria which promotes overall good health!
