Soup of celery root and apple

6 comments Jan 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

I had some celery root left over from my soup cooking experience a few days ago, so I decided to fully focus on the cellery. I figured that apple is great to be combined with celery root, and so it was. What a simple and delicious soup that can be done in just a few minutes.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 15 minutes

very simple


  • 1 celery root
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 apple
  • Salt and pepper
  • some olive oil
  • some vegetable soup stock


Peel and cube the celery root, then peel and slice the onion. Fry both in a pot with a bit of olive oil for a few minutes, then add about a liter of water. Let it boil for approx. 15 minutes. This depends on how small you have cut the celery root. Meanwhile peel the apple and cut it into pieces. Just before the celery root has cooked soft add the fruit. Put all into a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

TIP: You can add a small piece of butter and a sip of cream to enhance the taste.

  1. A refined combination! Perfect!



  2. This looks delicious! I only really figured out that celery root could be edible last year…. this looks great!

  3. Can you add any kind of apple Tobias? It sounds very interesting.

  4. Hello Ivy, I took a sourish one from northern Greece. I think any apple will do as long as it is intense in taste.

  5. Interesting! I have never had anything remotely like that! I like it!

  6. Very nice soup! In northern Greece, the use of sour apples is rather common in traditional cooking..
