Artichokes are tricky to peel but if you parboil them first, it is much easier. If preferred, leave the skins on and scrub before cooking. They give a nutty flavour.

  • 2 lb Jerusalem artichokes
  • 1/2 oz margarine or butter
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 pint milk
  • 3/4 pint chicken stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley


  • Melt the margarine in a large saucepan, add the onions and fry gently for 5 minutes until soft and lightly coloured.
  • Add the artichokes to the pan, together with the milk, stock and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring to the boil, reduce the heat slightly, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the artichokes are soft.
  • Leave to cool slightly, then work in a blender or food processor until smooth. Or work through a vegetable mill.
  • Return the soup to the rinsed-out pan and reheat gently. Taste and adjust seasoning, then pour into warmed individual soup bowls. Serve at once, garnished with chopped parsley.
