When you’re poorly, like I was, there’s nothing better to have to eat than soup. Chances are you’ll keep it down!
This soup is delicious. Not sure why its called Celeriac and Orange soup. I’d have called it Celeriac and Fennel Soup. The orange it really only zested over the top!
After roasting some fennel, you add it to chopped celeriac and cook until tender. Then you add some coconut milk and umeboshi plum puree. Then you puree the whole mixture in a blender until smooth.
The zesting of an orange over the top really makes this special. It really adds another layer of flavour to the soup.
If I’m honest I couldn’t really pick out the celeriac or the fennel in the soup. I could really taste the umeboshi plum puree – which is tart and tangy. Maybe we were a little heavy handed with it.
I’ve been eating this for two days now and really like it. It’s good hot or cold. It’s lovely and thick and I’ll definitely be making it again.
I’m looking forward to doing some cooking tomorrow and some proper blogging. I’ve missed it the last couple of days!
