Celery Root Soup

Submitted by: SALAZAM

Introduction

This recipe is very simple, and you can play around with quantities of the ingredients: add pear instead of apple, add potatoes for a less celery-ish taste, add more or less garlic. Add chili powder or white pepper.
You can also substitute onion for the leek if that is easier to find. For a richer soup add some half and half or cream just before serving.
Also, you can make this recipe vegan by using olive oil instead of butter.

Ingredients

    1 leek,trimmed, chopped and washed
    1 clove garlic, or more to taste
    2 tbsp butter
    1 medium celery root, peeled and chopped in 1/2 inch cubes
    1/2 apple, granny smith is best, chopped in 1/2 inch cubes
    2 cups vegetable broth
    2 cups water

    For garnish (these are not included in nutritional info calculations) choose one or two:
    Apples, cut into matchsticks or small dice
    Crispy bacon, chopped into small strips
    olive oil
    honey
    creme fraiche or sour cream

Directions

Melt butter over medium heat in a medium stock pot, add leek, cook and stir until soft, add garlic and cook until soft and fragrant.
Add celery root, apple, broth and water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat, simmer about 40 minutes, or until celery root is soft enough to puree. If liquid gets too low to cover ingredients, add more water or broth.
Puree soup in a blender or food processor. You may need to do this in two batches, and you may want to let the soup cool a bit first to avoid burning yourself. If too thick add more water or broth.
To serve, return to pot and heat over medium heat, then ladle into bowls and garnish with fresh apple, some crisp bacon or a drizzle of olive oil or honey.
