Weekly Food Prep Series: Tigernut Milk
What is a tigernut? Well, it's not from a tiger and it isn't a nut! A tigernut is a tuber and can be eaten plain. It has a starchy, dry consistency and a subtly sweet flavor. I like to make sure I chew mine thoroughly, especially since they can be quite dry and if you aren't paying attention, particles can "go down the wrong tube" and you can end up coughing. These are tasty, but for the reason I just mentioned, I tend to enjoy tigernuts as a non-dairy milk. Tigernuts can often be found in health food stores, coop markets, and some grocery stores.
