Sunchokes are mild, sweet, and crunchy, with a nutty taste similar to water chestnuts, hazelnuts, and jicama


  • Sunchokes are a great source of iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium; are super high in fiber and low in carbohydrates; and contain inulin.
  • Although inulin has certain healthful benefits, it can cause gassiness or bloating when eaten in excess. Eating a handful-sized amount shouldn’t cause any problems, but eating in moderation is recommended.
  • Sunchokes can be eaten raw, sliced and served alongside your favorite hummus or dip.
  • Sunchokes can often be substituted in recipes that call for potatoes and carrots.
  • Chop them into 1-inch pieces with other root veggies, such as potatoes, beets, and sweet potatoes; drizzle with olive oil, thyme, and sea salt; and roast in the oven at 425°F for 25-35 minutes or until soft and golden.
  • Slice into thin pieces on a mandolin and fry in 300°F oil to make sunchips that are sweet and crunchy with a creamy interior.
