I'm bored of potatoes.

Recipes for unusual Tubers: There are so many of these unusual tubers and root vegetables about that I've just never really cooked or (in some cases) even eaten; Cassava, Taro, true Yam (Dioscorea), Oxalis Tuberosa (Oka), Sunchoke (Jerusalem artichoke or "Helianthus tuberosus").
What do these things go well with and how have you cooked them or eaten them?

Also some of these are quite toxic when raw: Cassava contains cyanide compounds; Taro contains Calcium Oxolate etc. if you are careful to prepare and cook properly - I presume they are reasonably safe?
