This week’s soup might just be the best one yet. I know I say that almost every week, but this one is seriously delicious! Packed full of the different flavours from the Jerusalem artichoke, porcini and the drizzle of truffle oil at the end.
Jerusalem artichokes look like ginger, boil like potatoes but taste like artichoke, I find them pretty amazing and love the surprising flavour. They were a bit of a pain to peel, but I actually made this soup during the weekend, in anticipation for today, so I had plenty of time.
Porcini mushrooms have this incredible, deep earthy smell and flavour that goes amazingly well with the subtle Jerusalem artichoke. As with most soups, it doesn’t look super fancy or elegant, but it’s so full of flavour that it would be well suited as a starter for a country-style dinner party.
