Artichoke Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jenny Sanders

Here is a very fast and easy soup, with a rich, subtle flavour. Note: I adopted this recipe, and made changes to it which are not reflected in the review, as it was done before the changes.

Very good but a little thin I doubled the recipe and then doubled the lemon juice and sherry which helped w/the flavor. Also added a handful of (eggless) noodles to give a little more substance. Served with Grilled Cheese Dippers and a salad. It's a keeper. Thanks.

  1. Clean and slice the mushrooms. Trim the leek, discarding the roots and dark green portions. Chop it fairly finely, and rinse and drain well.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, and saute the leeks and mushrooms until soft and lightly browned.
  3. Add the chicken stock, and reduce to a simmer.
  4. Drain the artichokes, and chop them finely. Add them to the soup.
  5. Season with the lightly crushed peppercorns, lemon juice and sherry. Check seasoning, and adjust with a little salt if needed.
  6. Simmer for 5 minutes further, then serve.
