Celeriac & bacon soup

Last Updated: 09 December 2018








Celeriac & bacon soup

Celeriac is one of those lesser known super vegetables - it’s naturally high in fibre and low in carbohydrates so is a great choice for those wanting to fill up without filling up on calories.


20g butter

1 leek

2 garlic cloves

2 slices smoked back bacon, diced

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 whole celeriac, peeled and cut into chunks

1litre of vegetable or chicken stock (reduced salt)

1 tsp dried or fresh thyme

1 bay leaf



1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan and add the onion and leek, sautéing for a few minutes until softened.

2. Then add the bacon and garlic and sauté for a further few minutes.

3. Pour in the stock and add the celeriac and the herbs. Bring to the boil and then reduce and simmer for around 25 minutes until the celeriac is tender.

4. Remove from the heat, leave to cool and blend. Serve with crispy mushrooms and chunky whole wheat bread. 


Serves 6 as a starter (4 as a main)
