Recipe, Prebiotic Artichoke Super Soup

Prebiotic Artichoke Soup

Ok so it may be unseasonably warm right now but we all know Autumn is just lulling us all into a false sense of security and before long we are going to be digging out the scarves and (amazing) woolly jumpers.  So here’s a little recipe to get you ready to those chilly days, our Prebiotic Artichoke Super Soup!   A couple of weeks ago we were talking about the importance of prebiotics in your diet as much as probiotics.  Now while many raw foods such as bananas contain prebiotics and are a great inclusion in kefir smoothies we thought you might like to try our gut soothing prebiotic soup with a hint of turmeric, perfect to ease you into those Autumn evenings or to take to work on a soggy afternoon.

1 Onion

10g Flour

1 large Jerusalem Artichoke

1 tbs Fresh Lemon Juice

1 tspn Ground Turmeric

1 tbs Butter

50ml Milk

Salt & Pepper (as desired to taste)

100ml Vegetable (or chicken) stock

Yorlife Original Kefir to drizzle on serving

Wash peel and slice the vegetables, squeezing lemon juice over the artichokes to keep their colour. Melt the butter in a saucepan and toss the vegetables in it for about 5 minutes, with the lid on, shaking to prevent them sticking or getting brown.  Pour on cold stock, bring to the boil and simmer gently until all vegetables are soft and tender. Blend your soup, if possible, then add the milk mixed to a smooth paste with flour. Bring to the boil for 5 minutes, stirring continually.  Sprinkle your soup with cracked black pepper and drizzle with Yorlife Original kefir to serve.
