The Pilgrim's Soup

Here's a delicious soup Don created last spring, using Jerusalem artichokes.* "How come I haven't shared the recipe yet" you ask? Good question! My original intention was to include it in my "Best Of The Sunny Raw Kitchen" ebook, except artichokes vanished from the shelves on my local health food store before I was able to take a picture of the soup. Then I guess I got caught in the constant whirlwind of exciting new raw creations and forgot all about it...

Anyhow, we've had the chance to make this soup a number of times in the past year, experimenting with different variations, and it always turns out delish.

* The Jerusalem artichoke, also known as sunchoke, is actually a type of sunflower native to North America. It's tuber is crisp and has a lovely subtle taste reminiscent of water chestnuts: kinda sweet with an earthy-nutty flavor.

The Pilgrim's Soup

Serves 2 to 4

3 or 4 celery stalks
½ avocado
2 green onions
1 sm. zucchini
1 med. Jerusalem artichoke (gives it a slightly sweet and earthy taste...yum!)
handful of parsley
handful of cilantro
1 small tomato
1 tablespoon miso
1 tablespoon tahini
2 cups water


Variation I
Add:
2 celery
2 cups spinach

Variation II
Use:
Part almond butter, part tahini
Part cuke and part zucchini
Garlic

Variation III
We've made it once with left-over sauerkraut juice and water from soaking arame instead of regular water. OMG, was it ever fantastic!


Blend everything until smooth.

Warm up gently on the stove while stirring constantly until lukewarm.

Enjoy!


Carmella's Note: No need to peel the artichokes before using it; simply scrub it well under running water and cut off any dark spots.

That soup sounds so delicious. I'm might be able to pull this one off on my kids because they love steamed artichokes, too. Thanks, I'll try this one.

Hey Carmella

Do you know that those Jeruselum Artichokes are the easiest thing in the world to grow? All you need is a bed that is kept moist. You just plant one tuber and in a few years you'll be thinning them out giving them away.. they spread like crazy... easy easy easy, no work at all! Stick it in the ground and walk away. We had them at the commune and they were a staple, we had so many.

TF, really eh? Wow, if I can find a patch to plant, I'll give those a try.

Leah,
Not sure what family it's from, but it is kinda similar to a potato except it is very crunchy and sweet. Mmmmmm

I bought some Jerusalem artichokes to make this wonderful sounding soup. But... I forgot all about them! All alone in the fridge, they decided to sprout. So, I planted them in the vegetable garden. Hope I'll have a bountiful harvest so I can try the soup... this fall!

I don't think I have ever even seen a jerusalum artichoke. I will look out for it at my Farmer's market. I must go google it now to see what the heck this looks like.

It looks like a gnarly ginger root. As a thin skin, kind of knobby. Not very big, at least the ones I had.

Picture here

Yea, so I googled it and saw that gnarly ginger root looking thing. after looking at it, I am not so sure that I haven't just passed right by it at my market. It looks familiar. I will definitely look for it now when I hit the store.
