Celeriac and Pear soup

Celeriac and Pear soup

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 45 mins
  • Olive oil
  • 4 shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • thumb-sized piece root ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 Celeriac, about 800g in weight, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 4 ripe pears, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped

1.  Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan, add the shallots, garlic and ginger and cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, until softened but not coloured.

2.  Add the celeriac, pears and stock, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the celeriac has softened enough to mash easily.

3.  Liquidise the soup in a blender until silky smooth.  If using a food processor whizz until smooth and then sieve it to catch any bits.  Season and serve sprinkled with parsley.


Celeriac will discolour and turn brown once cut, so either use it straight away or drop it into a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon juice
