This recipe reminds me of my student days, when money was tight and cooking wasn’t high on my list of priorities.

Jerusalem Artichokes are a real winter vegetable, don’t worry too much if you produce a lot of, er, ‘wind’ the next day, that’s completely normal because Jerusalem artichokes contain a fibre called inulin which ferments rather than digests, thus creating gas.
