Celeriac Soup in a mug with a swirl of chilli oil held in gloved hands.

See that happy smiling soup face? Total accident but I rather like it! That is a swirl of spicy chilli oil which is just what I need on cold to the bones wintery days.

Those hands belong to my daughter, she nicks my gloves so I make her be my hand model from time to time and she gets to hold a mug of hot soup! 

Cooking With Celeriac

I avoided celeriac for quite some time. It was the vegetable which I bypassed on supermarket shelves, far too knobbly and alien, what on earth would I do with it?!

I remember buying one back in my early twenties pre children “let’s have everyone around for dinner parties” days and shoving slivers of it into a lemony salad.

But, now I’m a grown up, I’m a total fan! Yes, it works brilliantly in a salad but it is also fabulous roasted with a mustardy sauce and capers, cooked slowly in a stew or casserole, added to a curry or simply cooked gently in a soup like this one.

I slice the knobbly skin off with a sharp knife, you can use a peeler but it’s a fiddly little devil, why make life complicated?

Making Celeriac and Apple Soup

I love winter warmer recipes and I love them even more if they are quick like this easy celeriac and apple soup.

It requires no more than 6 ingredients and it’s ready in a flash.

Apple works so well here, its slight sharpness marries so well with the earthy sweetness of the celeriac.

Leave it out if you are not a fan of fruit in savouries, I won’t be offended!

This is the simplest of soup recipes, all you need to do is fry the onion and garlic before adding the rest of the ingredients and simmering it all until the celeriac is soft. Blend it until it’s smooth, season to taste and serve it. Easy!

Share it out on the top of your favourite hill, sip it on a winter beach or build a den in the woods and snuggle inside with celeriac and apple soup followed by a big slice of sticky gingerbread!
