Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Leek and Jerusalem artichoke soup
Prepare 1 onion and slice.

Peel and rinse 500 g Jerusalem artichokes and slice into thinnish rounds.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
Leek and Jerusalem artichoke soup
Prepare 500 g leek and slice thinly.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Leek and Jerusalem artichoke soup
Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a large pan on medium heat. When good and hot add the sliced onion.

Salt, pepper and cook for 1 or 2 minutes without colouring.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Stage 5 - 15 min.
Leek and Jerusalem artichoke soup

Leave to simmer uncovered until the artichokes are soft.

Stage 6 - 4 min.

Finish by blending the soup.

Stage 8
Leek and Jerusalem artichoke soup
Check the seasoning and your soup is ready. Serve as it is or garnished with morsels of lightly fried ham.
Remarks
The vegetables are cooked in two stages: the Jerusalem artichokes are simmered on their own first, as they take much longer to cook than the leeks. This allows us to cook the leeks until just done and keep their lovely green colour in the finished soup.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Tiramisu
Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
