Creamy Jerusalem Artichoke Soup
Seldom does a soup provide as many ballast substances as this one - namely almost half the daily requirement. They ensure long-lasting satiety, a healthy intestinal flora and good cholesterol levels. In addition, potassium for the regulation of the water balance and a fit heart are supplied to you.
The tuber, popular in earlier times and known as "potato", fell into oblivion when the potato was discovered. Jerusalem artichoke came back into fashion a few years ago. And this is a good thing, because its slightly sweetish taste has a very special charm.

Rinse and scrub Jerusalem artichokes thoroughly. Cut into large pieces. Peel garlic.
Place Jerusalem artichokes and garlic in baking dish and mix with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven at 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 3) (400°F/convection 350°F) until tender, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel shallots and slice thinly.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pot over medium heat. Cook shallots, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes.
