Sunchokes are delicious served like artichoke hearts. I boiled some until tender, dressed them with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Italian herbs, and salt, and brought them to a potluck. They were very well-received.
Afterwards, everyone was like, "Wow, that bean dish Dennis brought to the potluck had some really strong after effects." I was just like, "Yeah, Dennis's bean dish, that was it." Sorry Dennis.
