This hearty recipe hits the spot and was a finalist among hundreds of others. This soup recipe is so filling and flavorful and not to mention artichokes are SO good for you!

Thanks to member, Augusta ‘Olafsson of Denmark for submitting this soul soothing soup recipe!

Augusta writes: “I made a yummy soup for my holiday challenge entry. My family really enjoys it and I hope you “tribies” will like it too. I use Jerusalem artichoke for this soup because I really like the flavour, and here in Denmark it's in season so I'm looking for different ways to enjoy it.”
