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.
