Never had celery root before? It taste like an earthier version of the celery stalk itself. Rocket science.

  • ¬†3 leeks, white and yellow only parts only, cleaned and sliced
  • olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds celery root, peeled cubed
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken OR vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (I used 2 percent to healthy it up)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 slices crispy bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 tart apple, cut into thin matchsticks

Using a Dutch oven or a medium-sized pot, sauté the leeks in the olive oil until softened.

Add the celery root, broth and 3 cups of water. Bring the liquids to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the celery is soft.

Puree the mixture with an immersion blender or regular blender (a little at a time). In the pot – but off the heat – add the cream or milk, along with the salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with the bacon and apples.

Makes 4 servings.
