I have made Jerusalem Artichoke Soup only a few times with the reason being that I am only a recent grower of Jerusalem Artichokes aka Sun Chokes (They are related to the Sunflower). Veg Artichoke soup st6_1331x998In today’s recipe, I have changed it a bit to accommodate my lack of ingredients in my fridge! This is the great part of making soup, you pretty much just throw together anything you have in the fridge provided you have enough materials! I also prefer the new recipe I made up to accommodate this lack of ingredients. In the ‘normal’ Jerusalem Artichoke Soup Recipe, there is no Broccoli, Courgette (Zucchini) and you need 3 Leeks – here’s my new recipe below: Serves 5-6, but can serve 8 if used as an appetiser INGREDIENTS: 500g Chopped Jerusalem Artichokes / Sunchokes 3x Celery stalks 2x Large Carrots or 3-4 average sized 1x Leek chopped 1x Onion diced 1x Bay leaf Half Courgette (Zucchini) Handfull of Broccoli chopped 1ltr full cream milk 125 grams butter Salt & Pepper to taste METHOD: Step 1: Heat the butter in a large pan or pot, throw in the chopped carrots, celery, onion, leeks,broccoli and Courgette (Zucchini).
