Been getting a bit fed up of the soup options at the local place near work (as nice as they are) so have brought my own today which I am very much looking forward to. Had a sneaky bowl before bed and it was yum!
Teaspoon of butter
1 medium onion (diced)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 medium celeriac (diced)
½ leek (sliced)
1/3 pint of milk (I used semi skimmed)
Salt & Pepper to season
Fry the onion in the butter on a low heat until soft and sweet (10 minutes ish), add the garlic, leek and celeriac and fry for 5 more minutes. Add the stock and the bay leaf and simmer for 30 minutes until all the veg are soft. Add the milk, then use a hand blender to puree the soup, adding more milk if needed for consistency. At this point, just before blending, you could add some mixed fresh herbs, however I wanted to make sure the taste of celeriac was not overpowered so did not do this. Season and serve. This might be tasty topped with thin sliced of fried chorizo sausage.
