I made this soup yesterday and it’s tasty, even my husband who isn’t a fan of soup approved!  Sunchokes are one of my new favorite vegetables, they have a wonderful texture and a slightly sweet taste that I really crave.  They are great roasted, mashed, eaten raw in salads or made into soup.  This soup would be perfect to serve as a starter for a roast chicken dinner, it’s light and refreshing in a wintry/comforting sort of way.
