Creamy Delicious Soup

Celeriac soup just doesn't sound sexy, but believe me.. this is an incredibly delicious soup. It serves about 4 persons for lunch or light supper. Except you have a boyfriend like me than it serves 2 ;-)

For the Dutchies, reading my blog, this is the famous vegetable: Knolselderij ;-) 


300g celeriac (about half of the vegetable)
a small sweet potato 
1 big white onion
1 liter vegetable stock
150 ml soy milk
smoked salmon
cream cheese (I used a typical Dutch version: "Heksenkaas")
A couple tablespoons of olive oil

Preheat the oven on 220 degrees Celsius. Chop the celeriac (without skin) in cubes, the white onion in big chunks, drizzle with olive oil a bit salt and pepper and roast in the oven for about 10 minutes. In the meanwhile chop the small sweet potato in cubes (also without the skin). Then heat a big pot on the stove, add a tablespoon of olive oil and add the sweet potato, then the celeriac and onion and stir for a bit until slightly browned. Add the vegetable stock and let the soup cook for about 20 minutes. Get a blender or food processor and blend the soup until done. Add the milk and give it a stir and add some salt and pepper to taste. Then it's almost time to eat! 

Grab a plate and place a handful of slices smoked salmon and a big dot of the cream cheese in the centre, pour in your soup and spoon in! 
Tip: serve with some toasted spelt bread and the remaining cream cheese, delicious!!
