About this recipe: This vegan Jerusalem artichoke soup is luscious and full of flavour, and a great way to use those Jerusalem artichokes that come in your veg box! You can easily make this soup with chicken stock, butter and regular milk or cream should you not want a vegan version. Enjoy!
loved this combination of flavours, fantastic soup - 12 Feb 2014
This turned out very well. I liked it well enough, boyfriend LOVED it, everyone else seemed to like it. I used small crimini button mushrooms. I also replaced the vegan margarine with unsalted butter, used a Walla Walla sweet onion, and vegetable broth in place of the mushroom broth. I didn't stir any milk into the soup, but I drizzled heavy cream on top of it for decoration and garnished each bowl with a single fresh sage leaf. If you love sage, sunchokes, or mushrooms, you will love this bisque. It's worth the prep and worth a try! Note: I found Jerusalem artichokes at my local Safeway, they were labeled as "Sunflower Chokes," and were sold in the produce section in 1 lb packages. Update: To be a true bisque, add the milk. It also cuts the intensity of the flavor and creates a rich creaminess which is nice. Also, bisques are traditionally served in mugs or double-handled bowls on saucers Oh, and this recipe makes more than 6 main dish servings, more like 8, maybe even more (you're not meant to eat a huge bowl of this type of soup). - 11 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was totally delicious and well worth the prep time. I used baby bella mushrooms and olive oil instead of the vegan marg to saute the onion. Did not need/use soy milk at the end. What a unique and flavorful soup! YUM. - 17 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
