"A Jerusalem artichoke is a white-fleshed root related to the sunflower. It is not related to the thistle-like globe artichoke, even though they share a common name and taste rather similar. This soup is wonderfully rich and creamy. Garnish with fresh parsley."

This was simple to make & tastes delicious! It's hard to find a good Jerusalem artichoke recipe (esp. one that doesn't require peeling). I substituted non-dairy organic cream-based sauce base for the cream + vegetable stock for both the butter & the chicken stock, to make a vegan version -- turned out great!

Pretty good recipe! I caramelized the onions until they were light brown and tossed in a couple of cloves of garlic when adding the potatoes and artichokes. I thought this added some nice depth.

This soup is delicious. I had no brandy, but added several garlic cloves, also a touch of nutmeg. I used my immersion blender to puree.
