Hi, y’all and welcome to Soup Week!

For those of you new to this giant bowl of fun, thirteen fantastic food bloggers and I are dedicating an entire week to nothing but soup. That’s right. We’re channeling the less abrasive side of soup making (Seinfeld, anyone?) and stirring up elegant soups that will warm your soul.

We have soups of every flavor, color, and origin. From creamy mushroom to broccoli cheese to coconut curry. These super soups are just the thing you need to keep Old Man Winter at bay. Pay heed, Campbell Soup, we just formed the Justice League of Soups.

Wait. Too far? Dang it. I hate it when I do that.

Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to a very tasty soup:  sunchoke soup. Have you heard of or tasted a sunchoke? Me neither until last weekend when we were heading back from the mountains.  I was scrolling the “Interwebs” for ideas on what to make and I suddenly stumbled upon this recipe using sunchokes.  I was SOLD!

I dialed up the nearest Whole Foods and asked if they had any sunchokes in stock, and the rest, as they say, is history. Sunchokes are more commonly called “Jerusalem artichokes. Why? I haven’t a clue. They don’t come from Jerusalem or look like artichokes. Sunchokes look like miniature celery roots or larger versions of fresh ginger. They taste “earthy,” as you can imagine, but infuse a great potato-y flavor to soup.

For this recipe, all you need to do is add some cauliflower, thyme, butter, and milk to a big ol’ pot and you’ll have dinner in less than 30 minutes, yo. But wait, there’s more! Mwhahahahah!

You can’t make a soup without a little dipper to go alongside. That would just be a cray-cray.  It took me 2.2 nanoseconds to figure out the sidekick for this soup. Meet, Mr. Gorgonzola and Honey Crostini. He’s savory and sweet. Watch out girls, he’ll stick to you like spandex on an action hero.
