If you feel a bit full and bloated after eating this soup, it’s a temporary effect and means the good bacteria in your gut are starting to have a party. Their numbers are increasing and the colony is getting stronger. Both of them are wonderful for the digestion.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for cooking
1 large white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
285g jerusalem artichokes, roughly diced, skin left on
2 parsnips, roughly diced, skin left on
500ml vegetable stock
3-4 tablespoons live probiotic yoghurt
sea salt
black pepper

Method

  1. Heat a little olive oil in large pan, add the onion and garlic and cook for 4–5 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent.
  2. Add the Jerusalem artichokes and parsnips and enough vegetable stock to cover them. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the parsnips and artichokes are tender.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer in batches to a jug blender and process into a smooth, velvety soup. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt and some freshly ground black pepper.
