White Wine Celery Root Soup
Don’t you love the flavour of a hearty and comforting bowl of soup? I do, no matter the season. That’s why I’m coming in hot with this bowl of nourishing soup, sure to make your savoury heart jump.
Celery root (aka celeriac) is a vegetable that is often overlooked compared to other root vegetables. That’s why I created a delicious and decadent soup using celeriac to make a nutrient-dense meal that can be served as a light lunch and dinner or exciting starter to fuel your tastebuds. So if you struggle with using up a whole celery root and want to avoid food waste, this is the perfect recipe for you.
What you need for this White Wine Celery Root Soup
This soup is easy to make and done in 35 minutes. The best part? Besides the celery root, you can use up ingredients you probably already have sitting in your kitchen. Put them to good use by whipping up this delicious and hearty dish, perfect to meal-prep and eat during the week. Here is what you’ll need:
Celery Root: The winter vegetable, also known as celeriac, comes with an earthy flavour perfect for a comforting soup.
Onions: In this soup, it brings in a touch of sweetness and a hearty flavour.
Garlic: This root vegetable is a frequent addition to complement other ingredients and acts as a savoury base flavour.
White Wine: A dry wine, like Grüner Veltliner or Sauvignon Blanc, works best when cooking with vegetables.
Vegetable Stock: Use homemade, store-bought or organic stock cubes as a cooking liquid.
Caraway: A mainstay in a lot of Austrian dishes, it pairs wonderfully with all root vegetables.
Nutmeg: This is also true for nutmeg, which pairs well with root vegetables like potatoes, parsnips, carrots and of course, celery root.
Tips for making these celery root soup
Cut the celery root in half first, then peel with a vegetable peeler and chop.
Roast the onion first, then put in the celery root and spices. Add the garlic last to prevent it from turning bitter.
This soup needs no heavy cream to reach the right consistency. The ideal ratio from celery root to vegetable stock will do the trick. If you like the soup to be thinner, add more vegetable stock and vice versa.
If not eaten right away, store in the fridge for up to three days or freeze for up to 3 months.
