What are Jerusalem Artichokes?
Jerusalem artichokes which are often called sunchokes, belong to the family of tubers. Therefore they are somewhat similar to the root ginger in appearance. They are not like the globe artichokes. With a nutty yet starchy flavor, the taste of Jerusalem artichokes blends the taste of potatoes and artichokes.
You can use them as you use potatoes. However, making a foamy artichoke soup in the Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser is a great use of Jerusalem artichokes.

Instead of shallots, you can saute onion or garlic and then fry the artichokes in it. Go with what you love the most.
Though some people may find that chicken stock is more flavorful and high in protein, vegetable stock is the only option for vegan. Tantalize the soup with the flavors of different vegetables.
Skip the Noilly Prat Vermouth if the soup is intended for children.
Replace the heavy cream with some vegan milk or cream. It will give the same creamy and velvety texture.
Adjust the salt after tasting the broth as it often contains higher amounts of salt, and your soup can become too salty.
Try cayenne pepper instead of black pepper for an amazing twist.
Sprinkle some parmesan cheese for making the soup an irresistible treat.
