For the soup:

  • 2 pounds sunchokes with the skin on
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium-size onion chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery stalks rinsed and sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups unsalted or low-sodium vegetable or homemade chicken stock
  • 2 cups water

As topping - (Optional)

  • Homemade kale chips
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  • Place the sunchokes in a colander and rinse under running water. Using a kitchen brush, lightly brush them to get rid of the soil on them, if there is any. Cut into 1-inch cubes and set aside.
  • Heat butter in a large Dutch oven (or any heavy bottom pan) in medium heat. Add in the onion and celery. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 5-7 minutes.
  • Add in the salt, pepper, stock, water, and sunchokes. Give it a stir. Bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for 45-50 minutes or until sunchokes are easily pierced when inserted with a knife.
  • In a blender, puree the soup in 2 batches until smooth. Return the soup to the pan and reheat over medium heat.
  • Taste for seasoning and add in if necessary.
  • Ladle into bowls. If prefered, top each bowl with kale chips and sesame seeds.
