Celeriac and Pear Soup
Ingredients1 h 15 m servings 193
- Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, shallot, and onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the celeriac, carrot, celery, potato, and 1 cup of the vegetable broth; cook and stir until the vegetables are heated, about 5 minutes before pouring in the remaining broth. Season with the pepper, tarragon, sage, thyme, and parsley; gently stir the pears into the mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
- Remove the soup from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes; stir the cream into the soup. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
- Cook's Note:
- If the soup does not come out thick enough when blended, add flour to thicken to your liking.

Wow! For a vegetable soup, this was really great. I only used 2 quarts of stock total and mashed rather than pureed the soup. I also used skim milk and a Tbsp of flour instead of cream to cut th...
I wish I could say that I liked it more as it is certainly a very unique combination of ingredients for a soup. I think the sweetness overwhelmed me and the celeriac wasn't quite a strong enough...
My husband says that this is restaurant quality soup. I do not have access to celeriac root so I substituted 2 whole stalks of celery including the celery leaves. I do remove the celery strings ...
