Jerusalem artichoke soup recipe

So why are they called “Jerusalem” artichokes when they come from North America? Well, one theory is that the name comes from the Italian for sunflower – “girasole”, owing to the close resemblance between the two.

And how come they’re called Jerusalem “artichokes”, when they aren’t actually artichokes? Well, the most likely answer is probably the most simple. Because, when cooked, they taste very similar to artichokes.

No great mystery then!

So how do they taste? Well, they have a sweet and nutty flavour with a very savoury undertone, a little like oyster. Think of the nicest potato you’ve ever tasted! When you mix them with chicken stock (or vegetable stock), onion, garlic and cream, you have a soup that tastes incredible.

When pureed, Jerusalem artichokes take on a smooth velvety cream texture, which makes them ideal in soup recipes. With a dash of cream added, you have a classy soup fit for a fine dining restaurant.

They also go great with a variety of herbs and spices. That’s why, when it comes to Jerusalem artichoke recipes, soup is a winner!

From rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme and bay, to cardamom, nutmeg, turmeric, salt and cumin, so many different flavours go hand and hand with the taste of Jerusalem artichoke soup.

Recipes including salads, risottos and pastas are great. It also blends well with citrus – try slicing them thinly and grating a little lemon zest on top in a mixed salad. Heaven!

Is Jerusalem artichoke soup good for you?

Not only that, but eating this hearty root veg will decrease blood cholesterol and aid weight loss, as the high levels of probiotics in these tubers change the way your body metabolises fat.

How to store Jerusalem artichokes

Jerusalem may have been around since ancient times, but its root vegetable namesake doesn’t quite have the same staying power. Store them in a cool dark place, wrapped in a paper bag. They should last a week or two.

You could even keep them in the veg compartment of the fridge for up to two weeks. Just wrap them in paper towels to absorb the moisture then seal them in an airtight bag.

This root veg is not famed for its staying power but should keep for a couple of weeks in the veg locker of a fridge, and inside a paper bag left in a cool, dark place for a little longer. Don’t wash them if you want them to keep.

You can store Jerusalem artichoke soup in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. If you want to keep it for longer, you can freeze it for up to 2 months (don’t forget to label the date).

Notes

  • If you’re on Weight Watchers, simply omit the oil and use low-fat cooking spray instead, which will turn the soup into 0 ProPoints!
  • If you’re not vegan, you can halve the oil and add 15ml (1 tbsp) butter instead.
  • If you’re on a low-fat diet, leave out the oil and butter and use low-fat cooking spray.
