Pair rich and creamy with sweet and tangy in this dairy-free sunchoke soup with a balsamic glaze.

There’s no need to sacrifice creaminess when it comes to soup when you’re on the Paleo diet. Instead of using heavy cream or flour, this recipe blends roasted sunchokes with chicken broth and unsweetened almond milk until silky smooth.

How do we make this soup even tastier? We top it with a tangy, one-ingredient balsamic glaze!

What’s A Sunchoke?

A sunchoke is a tuber that’s also called a Jerusalem artichoke. Mild and sweet in flavor, they’re a great source of potassium and iron.

They resemble ginger root and are crunchy like jicama – but you don’t want to eat this vegetable raw. Sunchokes contain a carbohydrate called inulin that can cause gas, bloating, and cramps. These effects vary from person to person, but play it safe and enjoy sunchokes roasted until deliciously tender.

You can find sunchokes available year round, but they are in their peak from fall through early spring.


How To Make A One-ingredient Glaze

This soup is topped with a sticky, sweet, and tangy balsamic glaze made from just one ingredient: balsamic vinegar!

When balsamic vinegar boils, it begins to reduce and evaporate, creating a thick glaze that’s perfect for drizzling on everything from soup to bruschetta.

Although we use one cup of balsamic vinegar to start, it will reduce drastically to around half a cup. You’ll know it’s ready when it coats the back of a spoon.

Helpful Tips To Get You Started:

  • Swap out the sunchokes. If you’re sensitive to sunchokes, you can halve the amount and sub in chopped parsnips or white carrots to achieve a similar flavor.
  • Use what you have on hand. You don’t have to use almond milk. Other unsweetened nut milk like macadamia, cashew, or hemp milk work too.
  • Go crazy with balsamic! Save any leftover balsamic glaze to drizzle on, well, anything. We’re partial to using it on salads along with herbs and olive oil.
