I have made plain celeriac soup before but I didn’t find it too moreish. So when I received another celeriac in my veg bag I had to think of something else to do with it. So here we are -the addition of bacon and apple makes such a difference!
1 large Celeriac, peeled and chopped into large chunks
2 onions, diced
2 Apples, chopped
4 rashers smoky bacon, chopped
1 litre vegetable stock
1 tbsp olive oil
In a large saucepan, fry the onion and the bacon in the oil until soft. Add the celeriac, apple and stock. Bring the soup up to the boil then simmer until the celeriac is soft. Blend and add a liitle milk or water if needed for desired consistency. Heat to serve.
And for those unfamiliar with celeriac this is what it looks like… Not the prettiest looking vegetable. It’s widely available in the winter months so give it a try.
Made this for lunch day. It was a great hit and even the youngest fussy eater went back for thirds…full of flavour and a lovely thick consistency….delicious!
