Sunchokes (often called Jerusalem artichokes) are tubers that taste like a cross between a radish and artichoke. They are a wonderful addition to this pilaf!
Ingredients:
3/4 cup quinoa
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/4 cup vegetable (or chicken) broth
1 cup chickpeas, cooked or canned, (drained and rinsed)
1 cup peeled, chopped sunchokes
1 cup peas, fresh or frozen
1 tsp pepper
Directions:
1 Place the quinoa in a large bowl; fill with cold water. Pour into a strainer, then return the quinoa to the bowl and rinse 4 times more. Drain well.
2 Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rinsed quinoa and cook, stirring, until it cracks and pops, about 3 to 5 minutes.
3 Add the onion and cook, stirring, until the onion is soft.
4 Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the chickpeas, sunchokes, peas, and pepper, and return to a boil.
5 Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Serve.
6 ENJOY!
