  • 1 cup of chicken or vegetable stock
  • 100ml single cream

2) Add the jerusalem artichokes and the chicken stock to the pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer, covered, until the jerusalem artichokes begin to break down.
 
3) Using an immersion blender or upright blender, purée the soup. 
 
4) Add the cream and simmer for another 10 minutes.
 
For some extra special flavour, add truffle oil.
