This was delicious, and so simple. We had never had sunhokes, much less cooked them. Our neighbor grew a bunch and gave some to us. This recipe appealed to me because I love rosemary. Wow, what a wonderful dish. So flavorful. We also had homegrown tomatoes which were superb! Thank you!
This is a wonderful dish, we just love sunchokes. I had to make a couple adjustments since I was making this spur of the moment - we didn't have green onions or tomatoes so I used sundried tomatoes. It worked well too and the flavors go great together. Two of us ate almost all of half of a recipe!
