I scrubbed the sunchokes well but decided not to peel them. Dorie said this was optional so I took the easy route.
I love pureed soups and this was no exception. Given the cool reception of Jerusalem artichokes by the group I had low expectations for this soup but happily it exceeded all my expectations. I added heavy cream and the parsley coulis. I had all the same troubles the group had in making such a small portion of coulis come out in a blender. My husband and I could not taste the sunchokes particularly, it just tasted like a root vegetable soup but I would make it again.
