I think they're delicious raw, but wouldn't serve them to guests as they can give some people, myself included, serious gas.

They are so good raw. Just slice really thin and marinate in lemon, olive oil, dill, S&P. Here is a pizzetta I made that has them on top along with caramelized onions and cashew ricotta.

I don't bother to peel. I just scrub well roast with some evoo and salt and then throw a dash of balsamic vinegar on after cooking.

Cut them into scallop-sized pieces and trim off a few of the gnarlier-looking bumps but don't peel them. Sear them in oil in a hot cast-iron pan then transfer to a 450 degree oven. Turn them a couple times for a total of 15-20 minutes in the oven, toss with salt and pepper. Super delicious and simple. A starter or a side. We just cook them and eat them while we are deciding what to have for dinner!
