Jerusalem Artichoke Risotto with Pear, Walnuts, and a Fennel and Parmesan Cup

5060 Min

The Jerusalem artichoke has a wonderful earthy flavor that tastes like a combination of potato and artichoke. Combined with fruity pear, bitter walnut and tangy Parmesan, an umami flavor experience is guaranteed. As an extra highlight, we bake fennel and Parmesan cups, which you can fill with the risotto or salad. Looks great and tastes delicious!
