500 gr Jerusalem Artichokes, peeled, washed and cut in big chunks
1 onion, chopped
65 ml extra virgin olive oil (half for cooking, rest for after cooking)

Saute the onion with olive oil in a medium sized pot for a few minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients with 1 1/2 cup of hot water. Cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat with the lid covered. After about 15 minutes check the vegetables and water. If necessary, add a little bit more hot water.
