Creamy 'n Cozy Celeriac Mushroom Soup

Updated: Dec 7, 2021


This #dairyfree, #glutenfree and #grainfree soup option is sure to nourish and fuel your gut, your senses, and beyond!


I LOVED mushroom soup as a kid! How about you?


In crafting this particular recipe, I wanted an anti-inflammatory, whole food-based, grounding and nourishing variation that is a far cry from what you find in typical conventional, store-bought options!


In other words, free of dairy, gluten/wheat flour, soy, refined sodium, industrially refined/processed oils (e.g. corn, cottonseed, canola, soybean, vegetable oils), MSG/yeast extract, artificial flavourings, and any other 'edible, food-like substances', for that matter!


I also loved 'Cream of Celery' soup as a kid, but I won't go there in terms of the ingredients in conventional, canned options. ;)


Rather, I've merged two of my childhood favourites using fiber-rich organic celery root and organic brown cremini mushrooms, along with the sweetness of some apple, the creaminess of organic, full-fat coconut milk and other staple soup ingredients.


The result? A fuelling, energizing, and oh-so-comforting anti-inflammatory alternative, and another way to enjoy the unique of celery root as a root veggie option!


Onto the recipe!



Creamy 'n Cozy Celeriac Mushroom Soup


Yield: 6 servings


Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 45 min

Total Time: 60 min


Ingredients:


  • 2 tbsp. organic, extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)

  • 1 medium celeriac, peeled and cubed (about 5 cups)

  • 1 tsp. thyme, ground

  • ½ tsp. sea salt

  • 2 medium apples, peeled and cubed (about 2 cups)

  • 3 cups organic, brown cremini mushrooms, sliced (about 12-15 mushrooms)

  • 1 carton organic vegetable broth (900 mL)

  • 1 cup organic, full-fat coconut milk

  • Sprinkling of pepper, to taste (optional)


Garnishes (Optional):


  • Sunflower sprouts (or microgreen/freshly-chopped herb of choice)

  • Organic walnut pieces, toasted (or other toasted nut/seed of choice)


Recipe Directions:


1. Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot on medium heat.

2. Add the onion and sauté for about 4-5 minutes, until it softens and becomes fairy translucent.

3. Add in the celeriac, thyme and sea salt and sauté for about 5 minutes.

4. Add in the apple and mushrooms and sauté for about 5 more minutes until they’ve softened.

5. Add the vegetable stock, then let simmer at low-medium heat (free of any boiling) for approx. 20-25 minutes, until the ingredients are fork-tender. Turn off the heat.

6. Transfer the soup into a vented, high-speed blender (one batch at a time) and puree until smooth. Transfer to an alternative pot once pureed. Repeat until all of the soup has been accounted for. *Alternatively, use an immersion blender to blend until consistently smooth, or leave partly unblended if you prefer more of a hearty texture.

7. Once finished blending, stir in the coconut milk thoroughly. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, whether it be more thyme, sea salt or a sprinkling of pepper as desired!

8. Portion into bowls and top with sunflower sprouts and walnut pieces. Enjoy!
