Celeriac Parsnip and Thyme Soup made in the Thermomix

If you feel like a winter warmer then this is the soup for you!  The cold weather has well and truly arrived here in Melbourne this week and I’m absolutely loving it. Comfort food here we come!

The wonderful thing about this soup is the minimal preparation time required and it can be cooked and ready on the table in about thirty minutes.  Celeriac might be the ugly duckling of vegetables with it’s knobbly exterior, but it’s extremely versatile and in season right now in Victoria.

How to prepare Celeriac

Celeriac might seem a bit overwhelming to prepare but it’s quite straightforward.  Using a sharp knife and chopping board, put the celeriac on its side and cut off the top and bottom.  Stand it upright and cut down the sides close to the skin until it’s fully peeled.  Be careful not to remove too much flesh.

This soup tastes good enough on it’s own and even better with one of my Thermomix Soft Bread Rolls.  You could also serve it with some grilled bacon on top.  It also freezes really well so you don’t have to eat it all in one go.
