In a medium saucepan add oil, onions and tomatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile peel the potato and Jerusalem artichokes and cut them into big pieces. Add them to the tomato mixture with the herbs and water. Half-cover and keep on cooking over a gentle heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally.
When the water is reduced, transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and purée. Return the purée in the saucepan, whisk in the milk, season to taste with salt and bring to the boil slowly. At this point add 2 teaspoons maize starch with a colander, stirring continuously until you obtain a smooth cream.
Serve hot or warm.
