CELERIAC SOUP

December 4, 2012

Another thing I’ve learnt in the last six months of not shopping at supermarkets is that you can make soup out of practically anything. I am going to use some of the huge celeriac as vegetable dishes but there is enough for a couple of pans of soup too! It almost feels like a free meal served alongside home-made bread.

INGREDIENTS

Celeriac may be ugly but tastes delicious!

50g butter
500g celeriac peeled and cubed
1 potato peeled and cubed
1 leek trimmed, washed and sliced
1 onion peeled and chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
1 litre vegetable stock

METHOD

1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based pan over low heat.
2. Add the celeriac, leek, potato, garlic and onion, season generously, and gently sweat the vegetables until they’re all starting to soften (this will take about 10 minutes).

3. Add the stock, bring the soup up to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the celeriac is completely tender.
4. Liquidise until smooth, return to the pan and reheat over a medium heat and check seasoning.
