Soup: celeriac and bramley apple

Last winter for a while I posted a soup recipe every week. This winter, as soon as the cold winter started, I started making soup again. For a long while I got away with last year's recipes, but eventually I got bored and started again.


I like this soup because the smooth, earthy flavour of the celariac goes so well with the sharp freshness of the apples. It's tasty, filling, easy and healthy - next to no fat, and no Weightwatchers points.

Serves eight

One celariac, scrubbed, peeled and cut into chunks

Two large bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

Large onion, sliced

Litre and half of stock

Oil or fry light

Heat the oil or frylight in a large pan on a medium heat. Soften the onions.

Add the apples and celariac and stir.

Add the stock.

Bring to the boil and boil for 20 minutes.

Blend in the pan using a stick blender, check and adjust seasoning. Serve.
