Celeriac, Potato and Leek Soup

I came up with this recipe for Celeriac, Potato and Leek soup after purchasing my first celeriac from a local Farmer’s Market.  I had some potatoes and leeks to use up and I figured it would be a good combination.   I was right.  Simple, delicious ingredients make for a simple, delicious soup.  The fresh sage was leftover from another recipe and added a nice flavour, but is certainly optional.

And since this Celeriac, Potato and Leek soup contains only Real Food, I am happy to share with Tyson!  In fact, I made a really large batch and froze a bunch of into cubes for him to eat later.  I love having a variety of food options waiting in the freezer for him.

Ingredients

1 medium celeriac (or celery root), peeled

2.  Add coconut oil to large pot and heat.
3.  Add leeks to pot and saute until softened.
4.  Add potatoes and celeriac to pot and saute with leeks for a few minutes.
5.  Add vegetable broth and milk and bring to a boil.
6.  Turn down heat and boil gently until potatoes and celeriac are soft, about 20-25 minutes.
7.  Add sage, salt and pepper.  Boil for another 5 minutes.
8.  Turn off heat and let soup cool.

    Made this soup a month ago! And we all LOVED it! Was at the market today, and my husband saw the celery root and requested I make it again! So easy (for a terrible cook) and so yummy!!!!
