Let’s start with a little warning. When you first try this soup you may think I have played an evil prank on you. Because initially it may feel like digestive warfare has unfolded and you will feel bloated and gassy afterwards. But what you are experiencing is a massive feeding of the good bacteria in the gut which will cause the bacterial colony to grow and strengthen. The long-term benefit of this is that bloating will ease and many aspects of digestion and digestive health will improve. Another odd thing: these vegetables are not artichokes and have nothing to do with Jerusalem. Weird!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 large white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
sea salt
500g jerusalem artichokes, skin-on, chopped
500ml vegetable stock, plus more if needed
chilli oil and chilli flakes, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. In a large saucepan, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil, with a pinch of sea salt, until the onion softens. Add the Jerusalem artichokes and enough stock to cover. You can always add more if the soup is a little thick, but watery soup is just like gruel!
  2. Simmer gently for around 20 minutes, until the artichokes have softened. Blend into a thick, smooth soup, adding more stock if you would like it thinner. Serve with a drizzle of chilli oil and a sprinkle of chilli flakes (if using).

Note

  • Best for bloating.
