Sunroot (Helianthus Tuberosus) aka sunchoke or topinambur or Jerusalem artichoke is a species of sunflower first cultivated by Native Americans.

I just improvised by throwing the following ingredients into my trusty blender: 

  • a few sunroots, 
  • four tomatoes, 
  • spring onions, 
  • a handful of baby spinach, 
  • a green chili, 
  • a little garlic clove, 
  • sea salt to taste, 
  • a spoonful of flax oil and 
  • some extra virgin olive oil.
It was surprisingly good!
