There is nothing quite like snuggling up under a blanket with a bowl of warm soup, and this is no different with this hearty broth. Using the tuber of the Jerusalem artichoke sunflower, this recipe incorporates fresh herbs and rich flavours to create that homemade feel.

This earthy aroma is enriched even more by the last addition of truffle oil, resulting in a filling and warm meal.
