Chef’s tips & techniques
- Instead of truffle, you can use mushrooms or celery root.
- The soup works well as an appetiser too – simply serve in small cups.
- For the crostini, use olive oil, Parmesan cheese and salt.
- Nutritional tip: To make a lighter soup reduce the amount of cream and serve with more vegetables.
