|Soup Before Immersion Blender|
|These are NOT potatoes!|
Here are the ingredients and what I did:
|Scrubbed and Trimmed Sunchokes!|
Tip: Soak sunchokes in cold water with a little baking soda before scrubbing and cut off the knobby parts that are tough to clean! The skins are good for you!
|Thank god for food processors!|
1 lb Sunchokes, scrubbed
2 cloves garlic
I shredded the above ingredients in the food processor.
Approx 1/4 cup flour (I combined soy and whole wheat pastry flour)
Approx 1/4 cup corn meal
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Assorted Fresh Herbs to taste (chives, parsley)
|Mix it up!|
Mix all above ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
I then grabbed a tablespoon sized measuring spoon and a flat wooden spatula to help make sure I had even flat circular fritters.
Pan fry using High Heat Safflower Oil (it doesn't oxidize as much as other oils when heated to high temps). Cook 1-3 min per side, until lightly browned and crispy!
|Into the frying pan they go!|
