How to cook Jerusalem artichokes in a pan

  1. To prepare your dish, peel the tubers well, then with the help of a mandolin – or by hand with a sharp knife – cut the Jerusalem artichoke into thin slices or chunks (to your taste).
  2. In a pan, heat a few rounds of extra virgin olive oil, then pour the Jerusalem artichoke sheets, add a few tablespoons of hot water, a little salt, white or black pepper and a few sprigs of chopped rosemary; cook for a quarter of an hour , until the tuber is cooked and therefore soft . If you have one, we recommend using a saucepan so that the heat is distributed evenly.
  3. You just have to serve: you can bring it to the table directly in the cooking pot for a slightly rustic effect. On top of the Jerusalem artichoke slices sprinkled with another handful of chopped rosemary, which will give a crunchy touch to the dish and enjoy your meal!
