Parmesan Crusted Jerusalem Artichoke


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.
