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
Add 1 litre water, 1 chicken stock cube, then salt and pepper lightly.

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.
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.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
Home made.

Ali Baba bread
This bread is so-called because its magical sesame flavour is non-negotiable! The triple dose comes from tahini (sesame paste), sesame oil added to the dough before kneading, and toasted sesame seeds both in the dough and on top of the loaves. The texture is soft, rather like ciabatta, but with a...
