Souper !

I have been making lots of lovely soup recently and my current favourite is Celeriac Soup. Recipe from HFW@ River Cottage - thanks Hugh

Celeriac Soup

50g butter (I used about a tablespoon of olive oil)
1 Celeriac
1 Potato, peeled and cubed
1 Leek, trimmed, washed and sliced
1 Onion, peeled and chopped
1 Garlic Clove, sliced
1 litre of stock either veg or chicken (I used veg)

Melt butter (or heat oil) in a large pan over a medium heat then add the veg and sweat for about 10 minuted until just starting to soften.

Then add the stock and bring to the boil. Once boiling reduce heat and simmer for about 20 mins or until celeriac is soft.

Liquidise until smooth check seasoning it will need some salt and pepper, then serve - yummy This keeps well in the fridge for a good week.

This is such an easy soup to make and really quick. I had mine with homemade Soda Bread. Which is also easy and quick to make.
