Success with Soup!

Posted By Kerri

I can make soup! So long as I follow the recipe and don’t omit high-calorie ingredients like cream or mascarpone then a soup-shaped future is within my grasp.

This is a Jamie Oliver recipe, from Return of the Naked Chef. Old skool.

Potato and Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Thyme, Mascarpone and Hazelnuts (he’s concise isn’t he?)
Serves 4 – 6

2 knobs of butter
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
455g Jerusalem artichokes, peeled and chopped (I didn’t bother to peel them)
225g potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 good handful thyme leaves
1.1 litre chicken stock
155g mascarpone cheese
salt and pepper
200g hazelnuts, toasted

In a large pan, melt the butter and slowly fry the garlic, onion, artichokes, potatoes and thyme (Jamie doesn’t say for how long but I did this for about 15 minutes).

Add the stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes. Puree, add the mascarpone, season and serve with the toasted hazelnuts.
