CELERIAC & CAULIFLOWER SOUP

Author: Shan Cooper   Date Posted:28 May 2014 


This is seriously the WORLD’S best soup. Big call I know, but I think it’s true. I think much of the deliciousness of this soup is due to the bone broth- I let this one cook for 2 days before adding it to this soup. Celeriac is something I had never tried before but will definitely use again! It is from the same genus as carrots, is very low in calories, high in vitamin K and C, phosphorous and copper. Cauliflower is from the same family as broccoli and cabbage, it contains many essential B-complex vitamins and loads of vitamin C. Cauliflower contains several anti cancer phyto-chemicals which have proven benefits against prostate, breast, cervical, colon, ovarian cancers.

1 celeriac bulb, chopped
250g cauliflower, chopped into chunks
800ml chicken BONE BROTH (you can use Veggie Stock instead for a vegetarian or vegan option)
1 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/4 cup parsley, chopped
Juice 1/2 lemon
Olive oil, to garnish

In a pot, sauté onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add celeriac, cauliflower and broth and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer and allow to simmer for about 45 mins (you can do this in your slow cooker). Once it is cooked, remove from heat, add lemon juice and parsley and blitz with stick mixer until smooth. Serve into bowls and drizzle with olive oil.
