Celeriac, also known as celery root, is an overlooked root vegetable that has a celery-like flavor, but is much more earthy. It is harvested during the winter months and is available as a typical storage vegetable throughout the year. 

The earthy and fragrant aroma, which is due to the high content of essential oils, is especially welcome in warming meals. Celeriac can be used in many recipes such as soups, purées, or in raw celery root salad.

Celeriac Soup Ingredients
  • Celeriac | Celery Root → The main ingredient! It is best to use organic quality.
  • Apples → Use a sour-sweet apple variety (e.g. Braeburn). The apples provide a particularly sweet, fruity, and at the same time slightly acidic flavor. 
  • Onion & Garlic → A must for more flavor.
  • Vegetable Broth → This is what the vegetables are cooked in! The higher quality the vegetable broth is, the better the soup tastes. 😉
  • Olive Oil, Salt, Black Pepper → For roasting & seasoning.

  • Blend the soup in a high-speed blender, or with a hand blender, until creamy. → Depending on how creamy/liquid you like your soup, add a little more water or vegetable broth.

🥗 Variations

  • Pear – Instead of apples, use pears. Or use a mix of 1 apple and 1 pear!
  • Herbs – If you like, add some dried or fresh thyme while cooking.
  • Cream – The soup is already very creamy. Still, if you like, you can add some dairy-free cream at the end.

🫙 Storage & Freezing Instructions

How long does homemade soup last? You can keep leftovers refrigerated in an airtight container for at least five days.

How do I heat soup back up? You can put it in the microwave either for a few minutes, or heat it in a pot on the stove over medium heat. The soup may thicken up slightly in the fridge, but it usually liquefies again when it’s warmed up. If it’s still too thick, add some extra water if you need to.

Can I freeze the soup? Yes, you can freeze it for a good 3 months and defrost straight into a pot over medium heat. You don’t need to let it thaw beforehand.

Notes

Apple: The apples give this soup a wonderful sweet and sour note. I used Braeburn apples. Instead of apples, you can also use pears, or 1 apple and 1 pear. 
Make-Ahead: Keeps fresh for 5 days. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Reheat the soup either in the microwave for a few minutes, or heat it in a pot on the stove over medium heat. The soup may thicken up slightly in the fridge, but it usually liquefies again when it’s warmed up. If it’s still too thick, add some extra water.
