i've been wanting to add more whole plant based foods to my diet, i tend to get in a rut of buying and eating the same few fruits and veggies. so i've recently become a member of organics to you. each week a bin of organic 'local as possible' fruits and vegetables are delivered to my home. i'm so excited to see what's in the box each week

this week a strange vegetable was in the box, what the hell is this? how do i cook and eat this gnarly root? i could have sworn they were baby mandrakes, but it doesn't screech and a quick search on the web told me they are sun chokes. fortunately i won't have to butcher a mandrake to make fried sun choke chips with rosemary salt yummy! with a veggie burger and a cold porter, i know its not exactly a whole food healthy meal, but good for a friday night, no?
