Ingredients100g white onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 leek (60g), finely chopped
1 carrot (80g), finely chopped
1 stalk of celery (40g), finely sliced

2 tbsp vegetable Boullion powder

- Gently sauté the onions, garlic, leek, carrot, celery and ground coriander in the sunflower oil for 8-10 minutes until softened, adding small splashes of cold water to the pan to keep the heat down (a splash being about 2 tablespoons).
- Then add the Jerusalem artichoke, vegetable Bouillion powder and bay leaf. Stir for a further 2 minutes and then add the water.
- Simmer on a medium heat for 45 mins until the artichokes soften and you can easily mash them with the back of a spoon.
