INGREDIENTS

  • 500 g (1 lb) Jerusalem artichokes
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 900 ml (1 1/2 pints) Chicken Stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper

LEMON CROUTONS:

  • 4 slices crustless bread
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Chop the artichokes into small pieces, sprinkling them liberally with lemon juice as you work.

2 Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the artichokes, stirring well. Cover and sweat over a gentle heat for 1—2 minutes. Pour on the stock, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes.

3 Puree the artichokes in a food processor or blender with the dried dill and sugar, then push through a sieve and return to a clean pan. Reheat, and add salt and pepper to taste.

4 To make the lemon croutons, brush both sides of the slices of bread with lemon juice and toast until lightly coloured on both sides. Cut into cubes.

5 Serve the soup garnished with croutons.
