Celeriac Soup Recipe

by katerina on February 24, 2010

Celeriac, or celery root, is not actually the root of our common celery plant, but rather a kind of celery which we grow for the root. Though it is frequently used raw, for my first expedition in celeriac I chose to make a very simple celeriac soup.

Celeriac Soup

This celeriac soup recipe is basically just aromatics and celeraic with some lovely homemade chicken stock—perfect to really taste the flavour. It is a creamy and light soup that really does taste of celery, but lacks any stringy texture. I just can’t wait to try it raw. Does anyone have any favorite recipes with celeriac?
