Hello sweeties! I am back in full swing. The last 2 weeks I have been ill with a viral throat infection but now, I am back with plenty of energy too! 🙂 xxx
Sunday morning, my husband & I pulled all the rest of the Jerusalem artichokes from our allotment plot. We still had J. artichokes from 4 other plants in the ground. We needed to pull them out because the rest of them would regrow again & that wouldn’t be very nice in the mouth & that meat less flavor too. We dug them out & left a few of them in the ground to grow to new plants in April. You see?
So, we placed them in 2 buckets filled with leaves & ground to keep them better fresh. We placed them in an unheated cold room. I already made several recipes with them. I will give you my favorites from my blog below this post & made 2 lovely recipes with them. The 1st one is a lovely soup, spiced up a bit & filled with yummy flavors & the other one is a vegan gluten-free main dish.
A lovely spiced up nourishing soup
This is a lovely spiced up nourishing soup. I made a lot of it & froze it in big portions for my freezer to enjoy this soup all year round! Because you know that J. artichokes are also known as Fartichokes,….& that is so true! 🙂 You must not eat this soup before going to yoga! 😉
Recipe: For a whole lot of soup
3 big large stalks of green celery, cleaned, washed, water dipped off, cut up into rough chunks
1 big leek, cleaned, washed, water dipped off, cut up
880 gr peeled Jerusalem artichokes, cut each into 2-3 pieces, kept into water with some apple cider vinegar put in to keep the peeled chokes white. This prevents browning!!!
2 tablespoons of hot curry powder
30 grins of black pepper
20 grins of milled pink salt
2 liter of a hot vegan gluten-free stock
coconut oil, to fry in
Take a large deep soup pot & heat up medium-high. Add some know of coconut oil & let it melt. When hot & sizzling, add chopped sunschokes & add 1 tablespoon of hot curry powder to the pot & stir everything round. Fry for about 5-10 minutes, adding some more coconut oil if you need to. Lower the heat if you must. Now, add chopped leek & celery pieces. Add another tablespoon of hot curry powder & stir everything round into the pot. Fry for another 5 minutes or so & pour your hot stock all over it, stirring. Place fitted lid on & cook for about 10 minutes or until all of your veggies are cooked through. Check seasoning, one last time. I added 30 grins of black pepper & 20 grins of punk salt to the soup. Stir through & blend with an immersion blender. This is a thicker soup. You must taste the artichokes first, then the celery & then the hot curry at the end! Perfect soup! Enjoy! MMM,…
