Celery Root and Kale Soup


Celery root has a nice sweetness that really comes out in this soup. It seems like it's diet time for everyone I know, and this soup fits the bill for a hearty delicious dinner that is really good for you. Happy soup Monday!

Ugly and dirty, celery root is some weird stuff.

Saute some aromatics, then add stock and the peeled celery root and kale.

This tasted kinda like broccoli cheddar soup, but had a sweet flavor from the celery root.

Hearty and delicious!

3 celery roots
1 bunch of kale
2 stalks celery
1 large carrot
1 onion
2 boxes of veggie stock
1 cup of sharp cheddar

Saute the carrot, onion, and celery in butter. Add the stock followed by the celery root and 15 minutes later the kale. Simmer about a half hour until the celery root is soft. Blend until smooth.  Mix in the cheese.


When do you add the cheese? Just at the last, after you blend?

I feel like this would go great with some toasted almonds tossed in cayenne

I really dig this. Even though it's quite possibly the ugliest vegetable out there, celery root is by far one of my favorites. Sort of the ugly duckling of the tuber family =)
