Jerusalem artichoke soup

Soup Serves 4 40 min
Blended Jerusalem artichokes have an unparalleled silkiness that makes for a luxurious soup. It's surprisingly filling – enough for a meal on its own with some thickly buttered farmhouse bread.

Cook's notes

Try this soup with hazelnuts. Add 50g ground toasted hazelnuts when blending the soup. Or add polenta croutons - deep-fry cubes of cooked polenta to make croutons. Serve the soup with the croutons, an extra sprinkling of Parmesan and a drizzle of white truffle oil.

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 500g Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed and thinly sliced
