Celery Root Soup
A celery root or celeriac is a very alien looking vegetable and its hard at first glance to really appreciate how tasty it is. So…if you haven’t already I recommend just coming out of your comfort zone and making this soup as your first experience. This delicious soup is a crowd pleaser and you’ll feel pride in adding a new ingredient into your repertoire of food.
1 Celery Root
¾ Cup Cream
1 ¼ Cup Sour Cream
2 Tbs Butter
2 Cups Vegetable Stock
1 Tsp Salt
Peel and dice celery root. Saute the root in a saute pan with butter. Coast the root thoroughly with butter and let simmer for 10 minutes with cover on.
Add cream, stock and sour cream. Stir until nicely combined. Simmer for 12-15 minutes unitl root is very tender.
Puree mixture in batches in food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Season to with salt & pepper. Taste and correct seasoning to taste. Serve.
*Note: Celery root can be very fibrous so a food mill would actually eliminate this even more than the food processor if you have one. Still great with the food processor or even a blender.
