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.

  1. 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!!!!

  2. This is really good! I enjoyed it thoroughly, thanks for posting it! One note for other readers, I really liked the soup more chunky like the potato soup I used to eat, so I only pureed a little of it and poured it back it to make the soup creamier but still with chunks of veggies. It’s great!
