Another use for celariac

Hello Friends,

The other week I posted about a soup I made using celeriac.  Last Sunday I tried another soup experiment.

I had a sweet potato left over and about a quarter of the celeriac.  I chopped these up, fried them with an onion for about 5 minutes and then added 1 1/4 pints of water and brought it to the boil before lowering the heat to simmer.  (This is for 3 people, for 4, I use 1 1/2 pints of water).

I cooked the veggies for about 25 minutes.  The sweet potato and celeriac seem to take a bit longer to cook than other root vegetables.  When it was cooked, I whizzed it all up in the liquidiser.  The result was delicious – again, it was quite sweet.  The celeriac and sweet potato seem to complement each other quite nicely.  This is one experimental soup I will be making again.

Until next time, Tawney x

  1. We had a very frugal meal tonight (taken from Delia Smiths Frugal cookbook) and one I would recommend. Ingredients following are for 2 people.

    One pork chop per person. Brown the chops in a frying pan. Very thinly slice two large potatoes and one large onion. Butter a roasting tray and lay half the potato and half the onion on the bottom, put the chops on top, sprinkle on some sage and then cover with the remaining onion and potato. Cover with 200ml of stock and 100ml milk. Dab some butter on the top and cover with foil. Pop in the oven – gas mark 4 for 45 minutes.

    It was wonderful – the potatoes were lovely and soft and tasted amazing and the chops were really delicious.

    I served it with shredded cabbage and some carrots.

    I will definitely be doing that one again.
