Apple & celeriac soup

Apple & celeriac soup

starter | serves 8–10

We always love a hearty, seasonal recipe and this one is a real winner. Creamy yet earthy celeriac is the perfect foil to sweet and sharp apples.

1. Heat half the oil in a large pan. Add the onions and celery and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes until soft. Add the celeriac, apples and thyme and cook for 2–3 minutes. Add the stock, season, and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes until the celeriac is tender.
2 Remove from the heat and blitz with a hand blender until smooth. Stir in half the crème fraîche. Heat the remaining oil in a pan and fry the sage until crispy.
3. Spoon the soup into bowls and top with the remaining crème fraîche. To serve, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with the crispy sage leaves and hazelnuts or grated horseradish.
