While Jerusalem artichokes are relatively high in carbohydrates, they have a low glycemic index ranking, meaning they won’t cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. So if you’re looking for a potato substitute, this dish is a good choice. It’s hearty, tasty, and compliments just about any main course. Simple and quick to prepare – this looks a lot like potatoes but – in my opinion – tastes much better.
- 2 pound Jerusalem artichoke, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- Salt to taste
- Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high flame add the Jerusalem artichoke and fry, stirring occasionally until the Jerusalem artichoke starts to brown (like fried potatoes), about 20 minutes.
- Lower the flame and add the parmesan while stirring.
- Cook for one minute, remove add salt, and serve.
