Celeriac is an ideal soup making vegetable. It has the smooth texture of parsnip and the wonderful flavour of celery without the stringiness which can often make celery soup a little problematic. A very simple two stage soup and an ideal diet filler since it is so low in fat.


  • 2 small onions
  • 1 large celeriac
  • 2 pints vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 small carrots
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Peel and chop all the vegetables and put them in a pan.
  2. Add the stock and the lemon juice and cook until soft.
  3. Cool and blend.
  4. Heat to serve.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 2-4 portions


This recipe should serve between 2 and 4 depending on appetites and size of bowl. BTW it's delicious and comes highly recommended.

I think that when making soup it is best to use very fresh veg (it does make a difference).Simmer don't boil.

I tried making celeriac soup once (not your recipe yet) and it ended up quite bland. I really like celeriac but I don't often use it myself. I was just wondering did I perhaps use part of the vegetable that I shouldn't have. It wasn't that fresh either, could that have affected the taste? is it better to simmer the vegetables until soft or should I boil it?

The recipe would probably make about 2 pints of soup. Depending on whether the soup is the main part of a meal, say for lunch, when each person might have half a pint then it would serve 4 people. For the starter at a dinner party when people would have a smaller serving it might serve 6.

Hi, I came upon this site while searching for a recipe to use for school. I was just wondering what the yield is and standard serving portion is. Thanks
