Creamy Celeriac Fennel Soup was a glorious accident created by Jenn Parsons and it is in my cookbook Healthy Homemade Soups and Sandwiches. It was one of those nights where you just throw things together and hope for the best. Jenn was trying to make a creamy white soup with healthy white ingredients that she already had. All that hoping paid off…..even more delish than she expected. It is super simple but maybe some weirdo ingredients. Celeriac (what?), fennel (okay?) and sunchokes (sun-whaa?). It’s totally worth the trip to the farmer’s market, but if you can’t find these ingredients I have alternatives. All the flavours meld together really well and probably would have been EVEN better with a teensy weensy drizzle of white truffle oil….. if you have it.
