So anyhow lol I am as many of you KNOW a HUGE JANE AUSTEN FAN and this recipe is in loving reminiscing of all Things Jane 😊😊
I originally Adapted this recipe many years ago and took out my scribblings and dusted them off and made a few more tweekings and made and served it at my Roaring 20's Birthday Party ! 😆😍😃
I totally forgot the matchsticks for the picture lol Oh well lol hahahha.
So I hope you Enjoy it and I will be mentioning a few suggestions in the post for example :
You are more than welcomed to ROAST the Celery root first if you want, if you don't have time that is okay too , its your OWN choice! :) & You can Also Make this a CREAMY Soup or Non Creamy Soup , also Dairy free if you wish!!! So many Possibilities !
If you make it please let me know ! Blessings !
Celery Root ( Celeriac) Apple Soup with Parsley Oil
2 Tab of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tab of Butter or Earth Balance
1 medium to small onion ( if wished) peeled and chopped into small pieces
5 Cloves of Garlic Minced
4 Cups of Peeled and chopped Celery Root
3 or 2 1/2 Cups of Apple of choice , peeled and cored and cubed ( set some matchsticks aside for garnish) .
2 Medium Potatoes peeled and cubed ( this can be left out if your dietary restrictions do not allow it)
6 Cups of Stock of Choice ( I use my Homemade Bone Stock ) But A Vegetable Stock will work well if Vegan ).
1 Tab of Apple Cider Vinegar or Lemon Juice
1 Tab of Honey or Maple Syrup (If Vegan or Agave Nectar)
1/2 Tsp of Cumin
1 Tab of Ground Coriander
2 Tab of Finely Minced Parsley
Heat oil and Butter ( or Butter Substitute) in a large Pot over Medium Heat.
When warm add the chopped onions and garlic, mix until they are translucent .
Then add the Apples, celery root and potato (if used), and mix thoroughly .
Add the Stock of choice , Bring the soup to a boil then reduce to a nice simmer for about 25 min or until the celery root and potatoes are done NOT MUSHY!!! Take note of that no one wants mushy roots or veggies .
Then Remove the Pot from your stove. Blend In a Blender until Smooth and Creamy , making sure no lumps are present what we want is a nice smooth Lump free Soup 😃😃
If its Too Think Simply Add More Stock.
TO NOTE if you wish to add CREAM Do it now :)
Return the soup to the Pot and add your Acid Of Choice ( Apple Cider Vinegar or Lemon Juice). IF NOT ADDING CREAM! IF ADDING CREAM OMIT the acid as your cream will curdle.
Garnish with Apple Matchsticks and Parsley Oil ( Recipe Below)
in your Food Processor add 1/4 Of pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a handful of Fresh Parsley Blend until the parsley is fully cut, Then Run thru a SEIVE and Discard the Parsley. ( I always add the parsley to my next meal for the next day or for Chicken Stock as to not waste anything ) .
p.s. this soup would also be great and fun for a Harry potter Party don't the Celery Root Bulbs remind you of " Mandrakes" lol haha #HarryPotter #Joke 😉😉😉😉
