Celeriac & Potato Soup

We are great soup aficionados in our house. Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, and Parsnip & Apple Soup are all family favourites, and for a special treat my German Cheese & Mince Soup hits just the right spot. But I wanted to try something new for a change, and had heard great things about celeriac soup. I wasn’t sure if the kids would go for it, but they loved it’s slightly sweet taste and both asked for seconds! And it’s really simple to make.

Celeriac Pumpkin Soup


  • one large celeriac
  • one large potato
  • a handful of shallots
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1.2 litres vegetable stock (or water + the appropriate amount of vegetable bouillon powder)
  • 4 Tbsp single cream
  • salt & pepper


  • Peel and chop the shallots, and fry them in a large saucepan with the butter and vegetable oil over a low heat until they start to soften.
  • While the shallots are cooking, peel and cube both the celeriac and the potato, then add them to the saucepan and cook for another minute or two.
  • Add the vegetable stock, and leave to simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the celeriac and potato are tender.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5 – 10 minutes, then blend everything to a smooth consistency with a hand blender (being careful not to splash yourself with hot soup!).
  • Stir in the cream, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The kids love this soup with some mixed seeds sprinkled on top!

    I love making soup. It is a recent passion of mine. I never thought make a celeriac soup, which is silly because I really like it. I may have to give this a go.

    This sounds yum! I love soup too and love making it at home. I’ll have to give this one a try as it doesn’t seem too difficult!

    A lovely simple recipe. It’s ages since I’ve made a homemade soup so must try this out!

    I haven’t been able to get into soups at all this winter which is a bit annoying. Butternut Squash is my all time favourite.
