Jerusalem Artichokes

After all these years in the Hague I only discovered the other day that there is an organic market near the houses of Parliament every Wednesday. We did some scouting and bought lots of vegetables. Today I cooked Jerusalem artichokes in our brand new oven:

Scrape the artichokes with a kitchen knife to clean from dirt, and wash them thoroughly. Slice.
Mix with olive oil (I am sure cold pressed sesame oil will do very well too!) and a little salt, a crushed clove of garlic and grated ginger root.
Cook in a 200 degree oven until browned and soft.
Serve over rice with toasted sesame seeds and Tamari soy sauce.

Exotic and very tasty!
