How To Make Artichoke Curry Soup

For this recipe, be certain that the artichokes you use are packed in water only, as many are pickled and would NOT be tasty with the other ingredients. You can use fresh steamed artichokes, which brings with it the best flavor and texture for your soup, but it is much easier to use pre-packaged or frozen for this recipe. Using the pre-packaged chokes truly makes this soup recipe a simple and time saving task (besides, just think about all of the extra dishes you won't have to do!). Personally, I would choose frozen over the canned vegetables every time. The can itself, in some instances, may give the artichokes an "off-putting" flavor. Frozen vegetables are a much better product, as freezing does not affect the flavor to a great extent, and also retains a larger amount of the nutrients found in the food source.

Ingredients:

  • 3 TBL Olive Oil
  • 1 TBL curry powder
  • 1 Large yellow onion (sliced thinly into rings)
  • 5 Cloves of Garlic (very thinly sliced)
  • 2+ cups frozen or canned (water packed only) artichoke hearts, drained
  • Dry chile flakes
  • 2 thin slices of ginger root (minced very finely) If you don't have fresh ginger on hand, substitute 1½ - 2 tsp ground ginger.
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 cups chicken broth (49½ ounces) Vegetarians can substitute vegetable broth, just add 2 tsp soy sauce to it.
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish (You can substitute mint if desired)

Let's Make Artichoke Soup

Putting the soup together

  1. In a heavy bottom skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, ginger, curry and sauté until the onions are translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Half or quarter the drained artichoke hearts, depending on their size, and add to the skillet.
  3. Add chile flakes to taste and heat artichoke's through and coat them well in the curry-flavored oil.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

Using a pot large enough, heat the chicken broth (or vegetable broth + soy sauce) until it comes to a simmer. In 4 to 6 separate serving bowls, scoop an equal amount of the artichoke mixture into each dish. Now ladle the hot broth over the mixture. Scatter a little of the chopped cilantro (or mint) on top and serve warm with thin bread sticks for a dramatic service appearance. Enjoy!

    Loved the hub when I saw the word: "Artichoke." I am so excited to make this great soup recipe. I too like frozen vs. canned as I get a tinny taste in my mouth when I use canned. Thanks my friend for a great recipe. I plan to bookmark this :-)

    Flora~ I am the total opposite, frozen veggies are my preference without a doubt! I have found that if they are left in the freezer past their freshness date, that they can take on that frost-bitten flavor. But for me, it's going to be frozen or fresh unless I'm out camping and fishing where canned vegetables work best! Thanks so much for commenting here.

    Personally, I have always preferred canned veggies. Frozen veggies always seem to have an odd aftertaste, at least to me. But perhaps that is only when they are eaten by themselves instead of cooked into a recipe where they are only one ingredient?

    RTalloni~ Thanks so much for making it by for a look at this artichoke recipe! More often these days we see curry get added to our recipes as a primary flavor enhancer, and that is just what it does in this Artichoke curry soup! The combo is so good! I hope you are as enthused by the dish as we were. Thanks for your comments.

    Cheers~
