Celeriac Soup with Chives and Pine Nuts


Take advantage of the lovely taste of celeriac and a range of seasonal vegetables with this comforting winter soup. Serve with brown bread for a warming family lunch. You and your children will love this easy to make celeriac soup.


  • 50g butter
  • 1 celeriac, peeled and cubed
  • 1 potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 leek, trimmed, washed and roughly sliced
  • 1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • 1 litre fresh stock, chicken or vegetable
  • 25g pack chives, chopped
  • 50g pine nuts, toasted

Prepare: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40-45 minutes

Makes: 5 – 6 portions

Suitable for freezing


Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based pot over a medium-low heat. Add the celeriac, leek, potato, garlic and onion, season generously, and gently sweat the vegetables until they’re all starting to soften – this will take about 10 minutes.

Add the stock, bring the soup up to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for about 20 – 30 minutes or until the celeriac is completely tender.

Liquidize until smooth, return to the pan and reheat over a medium flame. Just before serving, check the soup for seasoning and serve with the chives and pine nuts and drizzle over a little extra olive oil, if liked.

    This sounds delicious. Not enough chefs use celery root in recipes! Fresh stock makes all the difference in soups as well. Can’t wait to try it.
