Au Gratin Potatoes & Sunchokes is a rustic fall side dish that you will want to enjoy over and over again!
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #FallFlavors recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Au Gratin potatoes are a side dish that many know and love, and it’s a perfect side dish for the upcoming fall weather. Traditional Au Gratin uses thinly sliced potatoes, but I opted to make a more rustic version.
When I got my haul of fall produce from Melissa’s Produce, I was so excited! There were a lot of delicious veggies and fruits that I use regularly, but there was also one thing that I had never heard of before. Sunflower chokes (aka sunchokes). I looked them up, and after reading the description of the flavor profile and suggestions for how to use them, I knew that I was going to combine them with the baby Yukon gold potatoes and make a rustic version of Au Gratin Potatoes.
What is a sunchoke?
Sunchokes are a tubular-shaped vegetable, that look similar to ginger, but have an nutty, earthy flavor that resembles that of potatoes. They are a root vegetable of the sunflower family, and are delicious roasted are a great source of iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These fiber-rich vegetables can be prepared and enjoyed much the same as you would potatoes – roasted, fried, mashed, or even raw! So many wonderful uses for this unique veggie!
