Jerusalem Artichoke Soup Recipe With Mushrooms

The Jerusalem artichoke soup recipe is a result of our curiosity. Sometimes a visit to the market unearths new ingredients that we have yet to explore. This knobbly root spiked our interest and we gave it a try.

We discovered that the root vegetable is a very old vegetable that has its origin in the eastern part of North America. Today it is also grown in many areas of the temperate zone. The vegetable is the tuber of a flower that belongs to the family of the sunflowers. This fact also gave it the name sunchoke.

The tuber was a regular part of the diet for many natives in America. 

Its consistency when raw is quite crunchy but less starchy than potatoes. The taste is unobtrusive and slightly nutty.

List of ingredients:

Serves 4

Jerusalem artichoke
mushrooms
onion
garlic
ginger root
butter
black pepper
Himalayan crystal salt
vegetable stock
water
cream
fresh parsley

  • 600g of Jerusalem artichoke sliced
  • 300g of mushrooms sliced
  • 2 large onions chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2cm fresh ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of Himalayan crystal salt
  • 500ml of vegetable stock
  • 250ml of cream
  • Parsley for decoration

Method:

  1. Clean and scrape the Jerusalem artichokes.
  2. Peel and slice the mushrooms.
  3. Peel and finely dice the onions, garlic and the fresh ginger root.
  4. Gently heat the two tablespoons of butter on low to medium heat and stir under the onions, garlic and ginger. Fry the onions until they are translucent. Be careful that they don’t burn.
  5. Mix under the Jerusalem artichokes and let them heat through for five minutes then add the mushroom slices.
  6. Season the soup with pepper and salt then stir under the vegetable stock and bring everything to a boil. Turn the heat down and let the soup simmer for about 25 minutes. Thereafter turn the heat off and let the soup cool down for 15 minutes. Poor in the two hundred and fifty millilitres of cream and then blend the soup with a hand blender until it is creamy and smooth.

Note:
Butter and onions burn easily, which leaves a burned after taste when eating the soup, therefore keep an eye on it and reduce the heat in time.

This soup is great as a starter, alongside a salad or some deliciously home baked bread or a quiche.
