Celeriac Soup

Celeriac Soup

A simple and delicious soup made from celeriac, a type of celery root cultivated to grow into a larger size. You can use parsley in place of coriander.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

1 medium
Onion (cut any way you like)
Bacon (roughly cut)
2 slices
about 15 g
Grainy mustard
2 tablespoons
Thyme (fresh if possible)
about 2 stalks
Coriander, or parsley
a pinch
as needed
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Melt the butter in a pot and cook the onions on low heat. Once the onions have become transparent add the bacon and continue cooking.
2. Cut the celeriac into easy-to-cook, bite-sized pieces and add to the pot together with enough water to completely cover it. Cook until completely softened. Add the thyme.
3. Once the celeriac has cooked, mix in the grainy mustard and stop the heat. Allow to cool.
4. Once it's cooled a bit add the coriander or parsley, and blend it in a blender. If it's a bit thick here adjust it by adding a little water.
5. Reheat before eating and enjoy.
