Creamy artichoke soup
« on: February 11, 2010, 05:32:59 am »

Creamy Artichoke Soup (adapted from '3 ways with stale bread')

Serves 4

Ingredients
6 artichoke hearts (from tin or jar)
1 leek
1 peeled potato (or for less carbs use cauliflower or parsnip - my fave!)
750 g vegetable stock (or 750g water and 2 tbs TMX stock concentrate)
250 ml thickened cream
Pepper

Method
1. Roughly chop potato (or substitute) and leek
2. Put potato, leek and artichoke hearts in TM, chop for 8 seconds, speed 7.
3. Add stock (or water and TMX stock concentrate)
4. Cook for about 12 minutes, 100c, speed 1.
5. Once cooked blend for 20 seconds,  working up to speed 9.
6. Pour in cream and mix for 1 minute on speed 1.
7. Add pepper to taste, I use Szechuan pepper, no salt needed. 
7. Serve!

If you love artichokes like I do you will love this soup, even non artichoke lovers have liked this!

 I have only ever used a can of artichokes once before, many years ago & this one sounds nice and worth having a go.  Thanks Bartoncs.

Hi Creampuff

There is no bread in the recipe, the recipie is adapted from a cookbook entitled '3 ways with stale bread' its all about how to use up pantry ingredients!
