Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Muscat Pumpkin or a Butternut Squash
  • 5-6 Jerusalem Artichokes
  • 1 Sweet onion chopped
  • 1 Clementine squeezed
  • 50 ml Cream or a couple tbsp of Mascarpone
  • for garnish Parsley
  • 2 slices bread well toasted

Instructions
 

  • Peel the pumpkin and cut into chunks.
  • Cut the knobbly bits off the Jerusalem artichokes, peel and dice.
  • Put the onion in a pot with some olive oil and fry for a few minutes.
  • Add the pumpkin and the artichokes and pot roast it for a few minutes, taking care not to burn any of it.
  • Add 500ml of water and close pot with a lid.
  • Let it boil for about 15-20 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Blend in a food processor until your soup is really silky smooth.
  • Return to your pan.
  • Season the soup robustly with salt, pepper and some muscat and add the juice of the clementine.
  • You can add some more chopped clementine skin if you like the citrusy taste.
  • Then add the cream or mascarpone and adjust the thickness if need be with a bit more water, it shouldn’t be too thick or gloopy.
  • Cut the roasted bread into chunks and place in a bowl with some olive oil.
  • Chop the parsley and add everything to the soup once it’s been put into a serving bowl or individual bowls, that way the bread remains crunchy and will be much more enjoyable.
