Jerusalem artichoke and white bean patties

Now that winter darkness is almost at its fullest strenght, I much appreciate the comforting and warming qualities of local root-vegetables like parsnip, carrot, suede and Jerusalem artichoke.

Lately, I have grown quite fond of  the latter and have been using them quite frequently in my cooking. Peeling them is a bit tricky, but their nutty taste is definitively rewarding and worth the relative trouble.kronartskocksbullar_dec-2016

The idea behind this recipe is quite simple: artichoke and beans are mashed together and mixed with spices and 3 tbsp of glutenfree flour. The mix is formed into patties and baked in a pan with oil and or/butter. The patties are served with lingon berries and a fresh salad of greens in what could be described as a simple and happy vegeterian ending.
