Vegetable Soup with Celeriac

Vegetable Soup with Celeriac

Yesterday Keri and I had our usual CSA Farm share pick up and got a couple Celeriac root to try out. Celeriac is a variety of Celery with an edible root as well as the stalk. I think it tastes a bit sweeter than regular celery. So with that and a bunch of ingredients I threw together a huge pot of soup to ward off the Autumn chill. The recipe is below.

  1. I’m going to try this one, nephew! Sounds so good!! Liz and I are trying out a vegetarian diet for ourselves! Any great ideas, I’m totally game! Don’t know where we would find that celeriac root.. hmmmmm…

    • Farmer’s market should have Celeriac. Whole Foods too. If you can’t find it just use regular celery. It tastes much the same.
