Cream of Celeriac Soup

196/365

It was really cold today so I decided to make something warm and tasty for lunch.  I purchased a celeriac and set about making Cream of Celeriac Soup.  I've been meaning to make it for ages, so today was as good a day as any.  It's super simple to make and really delicious served with crunchy bread and butter (optional).  Just the thing to heat you up on a cold winter's day or to serve friends if you have them around for lunch / dinner.... yes, it really is that good!

1 onion diced small

Method


  • Heat the butter slowly in a soup pan until melted.  Add the chopped onions, celeriac and garlic and stir over a medium heat until soft (but not coloured).

It's one of my favourite soup recipes since trying it. Also gave Brocolli & Stilton soup a go and it was delicious too. Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
