    Jerusalem artichoke and celeriac soup

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes

    Serves: 4


    700g jerusalem artichokes, peeled and diced
    500g celeriac, peeled and diced
    30g unsalted butter
    1 onion, chopped
    1.4 litres fresh vegetable stock
    50ml single cream
    2 tbsp chopped chives
    handful of croutons, to serve


    1. Put the diced jerusalem artichokes and celeriac in a bowl of cold, salted water. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat and soften the onion for 8 minutes, stirring often, until translucent.

    2. Drain the artichokes and celeriac and add to the pan with a generous pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes to soften the vegetables slightly. Add the stock, bring to the boil, then cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

    3. Transfer to a blender, in batches if needed, and blend until completely smooth. Return to the pan with the single cream and reheat gently. Divide between warmed bowls, scatter with the chives and croutons, and drizzle over a little extra cream, if liked.
