Zesty Celeriac Soup

English: Celeriac Français : Céleri-rave

I got a nice celeriac in last week’s veggie box, and used 3/4 of it for a soup, reserving the other 1/4 for a salad.  The soup was to die for.  Just what I needed with a cold so bad it’s coming out my eyes.


Method and Ingredients

  • Preheat a heavy bottomed pot
  • chop 4 medium cloves of garlic and one small onion
  • add a little oil to the hot pan
  • toss in the onion and garlic, and 1 bay leaf, and reduce temperature
  • chop the celeriac into 1/2 inch cubes, and add to pan
  • chop 2 medium carrots, and add to pan
  • stir all together, add some freshly ground pepper and a dash of salt, cover with a lid, and leave to cook for about 10 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning
  • after about 10 minutes there should be some juice coming, stir and gradually add boiled water, to just cover the veg.
  • cover and leave to simmer for about 30 minutes
  • whizz with a hand-held blender, adding about 1/2 cup semi-skimmed milk* and serve.

Try it.  It is to die for.

*Vegans replace with chosen dairy substitute. Unflavored soy would be nice.

    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›

    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
