Topinambur are curious vegetable used centuries ago in Europe, this before potato was imported from the Americas and become the most popular food worldwide. Far to be forgotten Topinambur are appreciated for their delicate and delicious taste, here I give you a simple recipe to make a wonderful complement to main courses or, otherwise, an excellent vegetarian dish.

Topinambur born underground so they must be first cleaned from the residuals, then washed very well

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 using a small knife you can even peel the Topinambur if you like

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 usually I try to keep the skin because is rich in vitamins and minerals, so I scratch of the impurities with the blade of a knife, after that I wash the vegetables under running fresh water

 

 

 

 

 

 to make easier this preparation I cut each vegetable in the middle
