So, what is chufas?

Chufas are small, round, and wrinkled tubers with a nutty, sweet flavor that are commonly used in Mediterranean and African cuisine. Also known as tiger nuts, they are rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making them a nutritious ingredient for a variety of dishes. Chufas are often ground into a flour that can be used as a gluten-free substitute for wheat flour, or soaked and blended with water to make a refreshing, dairy-free milk alternative. With their versatility and health benefits, chufas are a unique and delicious addition to any culinary repertoire.
