Spinach salad with sunchokes
November 13, 2009
Really, Internet? You say sunchokes cause grueling episodes of gastrointestinal distress and volcanic gas eruptions? But look how charmingly quirky and innocent-looking they are!
Ok, I admit: it is a little bizarre that the water in which a sunchoke is steamed ends up looking like this:
But we’re courageous folks, so we soldier on. We’re going to have a spinach-&-sunchoke salad, toxic-looking liquid and gas rumors be damned!
- 1 sunchoke (a.k.a. Jerusalem artichoke)
- 3 fistfuls of spinach leaves
- 1/4 small red onion
- salt and pepper to taste
- glugs of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
And we will toss it all together, and we will eat it, and it will be lovely.
And then we will wait.
