Celery Root Soup with Croutons

Celery soup is one of my favorite soups. This version is very thick; if you like a thinner soup, you can add some milk in the end.

  • 1 pound celery root, peeled and quartered

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • ¾ cup heavy cream

  • 1 pinch salt to taste

  • 1 pinch ground white pepper to taste

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves


  • 2 slices Italian bread, cubed

  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a simmer, add celery root pieces, and simmer until soft, about 30 minutes. Drain.

  2. Place celery root in a blender and process until smooth. Transfer puree to a pot, add vegetable broth, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add cream and cook until hot, but don't boil. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and toast bread cubes until dry and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley and croutons.

Cook's Note:

You can garnish the soup with celery leaves instead of parsley.
