"The roasted mushrooms play off the unique sunchoke (a.k.a. Jerusalem artichoke) flavor in this simple and hearty soup."

Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed and sliced 1/3-inch thick
Yukon Gold potato, diced
6 large cloves
olive oil, divided
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
chopped fresh sage
This turned out very well. I liked it well enough, boyfriend LOVED it, everyone else seemed to like it. I used small crimini button mushrooms. I also replaced the vegan margarine with unsalted butter, used a Walla Walla sweet onion, and vegetable broth in place of the mushroom broth. I didn't stir any milk into the soup, but I drizzled heavy cream on top of it for decoration and garnished each bowl with a single fresh sage leaf. If you love sage, sunchokes, or mushrooms, you will love this bisque. It's worth the prep and worth a try! Note: I found Jerusalem artichokes at my local Safeway, they were labeled as "Sunflower Chokes," and were sold in the produce section in 1 lb packages.
Update: To be a true bisque, add the milk. It also cuts the intensity of the flavor and creates a rich creaminess which is nice. Also, bisques are traditionally served in mugs or double-handled bowls on saucers :) Oh, and this recipe makes more than 6 main dish servings, more like 8, maybe even more (you're not meant to eat a huge bowl of this type of soup).
This was totally delicious and well worth the prep time. I used baby bella mushrooms and olive oil instead of the vegan marg to saute the onion. Did not need/use soy milk at the end. What a unique and flavorful soup! YUM.
Excellent. I used 16 oz mushroom and veggie stock instead of mushroom stock.
I've got to give this 5 stars. Really delicious. These days, I rarely try recipes with so few ratings, and I'm so glad I did this time! What fabulous flavor. What a perfect combination of ingredients. I did find that after simmering and blending, there wasn't enough liquid for the proper consistency. I just added milk until it looked right. Other than that, follow the recipe, though. The recipe is dead on. Thanks, "smallu."
Couldn't find Jerusalem artichokes so I used parsnips instead and added shitake mushrooms as well=awesome. I also de-veganized it and it worked fine.
Well I adapted this a bit and it was great. I didn't have enough sunchokes so I put in white asparagus in addition to make up the difference. I put them in the oven with the mushrooms. This was fantastic! Tasted like a wild mushroom soup. I poured in a little whipping cream at the end in the bowl to give it a swirl like in the picture. I didn't want to add it to the soup because then there is something in it that can spoil and I plan to freeze some. Will definitely be using this technique again. I thought it would be a little bland with the addition of straight water but the roasted veggies turned it into a broth of its own almost immediately.
Followed as written (olive oil vs vegan margarine). This was so amazingly delicious that i ate three lunches today.
I bought Jerusalem artichokes from a local supplier without any knowledge about the taste of them or how to cook them. This soup looked tasty and I had everything I needed on hand. The only thing I changed was omitting the water by 1 cup and increasing the milk by 1 cup. I also used regular 1% milk.
