Jerusalem Artichoke Soup
Need This recipe from Simply Recipes requires jerusalem artichokes, onion, celery stalks, and salt and pepper. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes approximately 1 hour and 5 minutes.
Heat the butter in a soup pot over medium-high heat and cook the onions and celery until soft, about 5 minutes. Do not brown them.
Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
Add the jerusalem artichokes and the chicken stock to the pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer, covered, until the jerusalem artichokes begin to break down, 45 minutes to an hour.
Purée the soup: Using an immersion blender or upright blender, purée the soup. If using an upright blender, fill the blender bowl up only to a third of capacity at a time, if the soup is hot, and hold down the lid while blending. Alternately, you can push the soup through the finest grate on a food mill, or push it through a sturdy sieve.
Sprinkle with freshly grated black pepper to serve.
