A creamy celeriac and leek soup.

Celeriac, a rather ugly, knobby vegetable, also known as "celery root", is indeed a variety of celery cultivated for its large root instead of its stalks. It tastes like a cross between mild celery and parsley. Here it adds a fresh celery flavour to this velvety soup.

Ingredients

3 leeks, finely chopped 900 g
1 celeriac, cut into 1-2 cm pieces 650 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 cups water 500 mL
3 cups chicken broth 750 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Wash the leeks well, remove and discard the dark-green part, then chop them finely. Peel the celeriac, then cut into 1-2 cm pieces
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the leeks, then sauté over low heat until the leeks are softened, about 6 min, with occasional stirring. Add the celeriac, then cook 2 min with stirring. Pour in the broth and water, bring to a boil, then simmer, covered, about 30-35 min, until the celeriac is very tender.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Return the soup to the saucepan, season with salt and pepper. If the soup is too thick, thin it with some additional broth or water. Heat it through then serve.

Remarks

This soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
