Velvety Jerusalem artichoke soup with artichoke crisps and crispy sage leaves.
I like my soup with plenty of tasty bits to scatter on top to add texture and this artichoke soup doesn’t disappoint. Croutons, artichoke crisps, pine nuts, crispy sage leaves and some pink pepper too. The soup is earthy and deep with a wonderful savoury flavour. I love Jerusalem artichokes and think they are pretty underrated, we could definitely use them more. These knobbly little roots are not related to the globe artichoke at all, but actually members of the sunflower family and often called sun chokes, which I think I prefer.
I’m a soup fiend and have it for lunch whenever I can. However recently my lunch times have been spent travelling to my next work location and often I have to eat my lunch on the bus. So any soup thermos recommendations would be welcome. Although its still soup season here I do feel there is a glimmer of spring in the air. I have noticed a few new shoots popping up and I think the evenings are getting a little lighter, slightly. I do love Winter but by the end of January I’m definitely feeling ready to welcome Spring. I hope your all well and having a good week.
