Celeriac & Apple Soup

Antonia MagorComment

Celeriac’s are knobbly, ugly little root vegetables full of warm, nutty and sweet autumnal flavor, here paired with the seasons best crisp braeburn apples in a gently soup. When pureed celeriac has a surprisingly creamy texture, making this soup smooth and filling yet low in fat and calories.

Try a big mug of this for a cosy lunch or supper served with toasted walnuts.
