Jerusalem Artichoke Soup

If you haven't tried this vegetable this is a delicious way to start - it is creamy and nutty and anyone I have cooked this for adores it - you can serve the soup in little coffee mugs as a starter or enjoy it as a main with goat's cheese toast, or even crab sandwiches!

1kg jerusalem artichokes (look like large ginger)-peel and chop to even size.

In a soup pot, add some butter/olive oil with 1 garlic, diced, 1 onion diced - cook til soft.

Throw in the jerusalem artichokes, 1 chopped potato, 1.25 ltrs vegetable stock - bring to boil then simmer covered 25 minutes til vegetables are tender.

Let cool, process til smooth, warm up in a clean pan, add 100ml cream and season.

A special party touch is to add a few drops of truffle oil.

Serves 6 Main, 12 Starter, 24 shots for cocktail party
