Roasted Celeriac Soup

This smooth and creamy soup uses the often forgotten about root veggie celeriac (celery root). It has the texture of a potato, but with a celery-like flavor. Roasting the veggies brings out their natural sweetness. Use vegetable broth instead of chicken, for a vegetarian alternative.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds celeriac (celery root), peeled and cubed

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cubed

  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 5 cups chicken broth, divided

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • cup heavy cream

  • 6 teaspoons truffle oil, or to taste

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Combine celeriac, carrots, onion, and garlic in a large bowl. Sprinkle with Herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and stir to combine evenly. Spread out vegetables on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Roast vegetables in the preheated oven until cooked through, stirring every 19 to 15 minutes, about 40 minutes total.

  4. Place roasted vegetables into a high-powered blender. Add 4 cups chicken broth and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

  5. Pour mixture into a large saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining chicken broth and heat, stirring, until warmed through. Stir in heavy cream. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with a light drizzle of truffle oil and a sprinkling of green onions.

Cook's Tip:

For a thinner soup, use an extra cup of chicken broth.
