This soup is an ideal way to use up Jerusalem artichokes, the small, knobbly and tempestuous little tuber with no relation to either the artichoke or Jerusalem. Eating large amounts of these veg can cause noisy side-effects, so it’s best to make enough soup for the whole family and giggle at each other for the rest of the evening. This is light, delicate and very moreish, but one bowl is probably enough! Leftovers can be thickened as a pasta sauce simply by cooking pasta in it from cool, and allowing the starch to do the rest.
