Creamy or… Not??
This week I got my AzureStandard order which included celeriac. This is the first time I have ever had this vegetable and wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. My search on pinterest led me to this recipe at JamieOliver.com. I tweaked and made some modifications because, well… I like to do things my way LOL!
The result was a soup with so much flavor I am not sure how to describe it other than I couldn’t stop eating the first bowl when I went to take pictures! The original recipe calls for blending the soup to make a creamy soup, which I tried(it was fabulous) but it looks sooooo delicious as is that I just had to taste it – well its just as amazing. It’s a toss up and can really go either way! So here goes:
Robust Creamy(or not) Celeriac Soup
- 1 -2 Stalks of Celery (chopped)
- 1 large onion (chopped)
- 1 Celeriac Root (chopped)
- 2 Cups of Apples (chopped)
- 3-4 Cups of ‘soup stock’ I used beef
- 2 TB of oil (I used organic grass-fed butter, can use olive oil or coconut oil or oil of choice)
- 1 tsp Fresh Rosemary chopped
- 1 tsp Dried Thyme (crushed)
- 1/2 tsp Homemade Poultry seasoning blend (sage, rosemary, thyme and marjoram)
- Parsley – garnish
- Rinse and chop Celery
- Peel and chop Onions and Celeriac
- Heat up oil in stock pot and add Celeriac, stir for 3-4
- Then add Onions, Celery, Apples and Herbs – stir another 2-3 minutes
- Add soup stock, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 30 minutes
- At this point the soup is ready! You serve it with some parsley OR go to next step to make it ‘creamy’
- Fill blender about half way with the soup, make sure lid is secure and turn blender on low speed until it reaches your desired consistency. Pour in bowl and repeat with remaining soup as needed. Garnish this ‘creamy’ soup with parsley or other fresh herbs and ENJOY!!!
- As for salt – I did NOT add any salt to this soup, I am not sure if my stock had salt or not but the soup was VERY flavorful and did not need any. This is my very first time using celeriac so not sure about the saltiness of it?? Anyway… You may need to add salt
Interesting how this totally fits today’s daily prompt “OR“
