TIGER NUTS

It’s not a nut and it doesn’t roar, but, as Alessandra Felice finds out, these stripy tubers have plenty of bite

FOCUS ON…

Tiger nuts or chufas are edible tubers that have been used since Palaeolithic times in Africa, where they were a food staple and then spread to ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and, with time, to South America and Spain. And now, they finally made their way to us and are rightfully gaining more popularity.

They are currently cultivated in Africa and Spain, where they are the base to make a traditional drink called horchata, which is tiger nut milk mixed with cinnamon and sugar. Even though they may look like nuts, they are in fact root vegetables, just like sweet potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes. Because they’re a root vegetable, they are perfect for people with nut allergies, and tiger nuts are gluten and grain-free as well. But their power is not just in being allergy-friendly, as these tiny veggies are a powerhouse of concentrated plant nutrition.
