Easy Roasted Celeriac Soup

Easy Roasted Celeriac Soup - Fab Food 4 All

I recently bought a 1p celeriac on one of my bargain shops and put out a call on Facebook to see what ideas I could glean from my readers. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d bought a celeriac so along with ideas for things like Remoulade the one that jumped out at me was roasting. That then lead to the idea for a soup and I just thought garlic and lemon would be perfect bed fellows too. So my Easy Roasted Celeriac Soup was born and it really is just so simple and quick to prepare.

My husband wasn’t sure if he’d like celeriac but after trying it he proclaimed it to be delicious as did my son. Roasting really brings out the sweet caramel flavours of the garlic and celeriac and the lemon adds a lovely contrasting zing. Celeriac is still in season right now so do give this delicious soup a go!

I’d still love to hear what you do with your celeriac so do tell me in the comments below!

A delicious and simple roasted celeriac and garlic soup with a zing of lemon!
Recipe type: Starter
Cuisine: British
Serves: 6 - 8
  • 1 kg Celeriac, diced
  • 1 Garlic bulb
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1.45 ltrs Vegetable stock (made with 2 stock cubes)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice (or to taste)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped chives to garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Put the celeriac and olive oil in a bowl to combine.
  3. Spread the celeriac out on a baking tray, add the whole garlic bulb and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place in the oven and roast for 45 minutes (turning the celeriac a couple of times).
  5. Remove the garlic bulb and allow to cool.
  6. Carry on roasting the celeriac for another 10 minutes or until golden.
  7. Once the garlic has cooled, slice the top off and squeeze the garlic out of its skin into a large pan.

  9. Heat through, adjust seasoning if necessary and serve with a sprinkling of chopped chives.

    I get an organic veg box and, at this time of year often get celeriac…. at which point I groan as haven’t found many recipes I like. This soup is amazing. It gets over the all consuming celery taste and adds another dimension. I added lemon zest as well as juice. Thanks!

    1. Camilla

      Excellent Helen, so glad you like it-)

  2. Natalie Fishwick

    Just made this – so easy and tastes lush! thank you

    1. Camilla

      Excellent Natalie, so glad you liked it, thank you for letting me know:-)

  3. Jayne Sullivan

    I have seen celeriac in the shops but I have not bought it as I did not know what I could make with it.

  4. Julie

    Hi Camilla,
    Have made this soup a few times now. My daughter and I love it!
    I used to just mash celeriac with potatoes and she wasn’t so keen. This recipe has changed her view.
    Btw I presume you meant a clove not a bulb of garlic?

    1. Camilla

      Hi Julie, that’s great to hear. No I did mean a bulb, it gets a beautiful sweet flavour when you roast the whole thing:-)

  5. Claudia

    just to say how delicious the soup is. When roasting the celeriac I also put half a lemon into roast as well. Then whizzed altogether……….truly yummy

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Claudia, do you whizz up the pith/skin too or does that just shrivel so much it looses it’s pithiness I suppose?

  6. Julie Jeffery

    Just made this and enjoying a mug of it now. Large (huge) celeriac from farm shop 79p, 2 stock cubes approx 30p, homegrown garlic free, small amount of lemon juice and olive oil approx 30p. I estimate less than £1.40 for at least 8 bowls of tasty, healthy soup…….result.
    Cheers for posting this

    1. Camilla

      Excellent Julie, glad you like it and I’m all for thrifty meals:-)

  7. Paul Wilson

    Looks like just the thing for cold autumn days.

  8. Martina Evans

    Such a brilliant use for celeriac! I Can’t wait to try this recipe at home! Thanks x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Martina:-)

  9. Paul Wilson

    Much underrated celeriac.

  10. Elizabeth

    Celeriac will start appearing in my veg box soon. Bookmarked to try! Thank you for sharing with the no waste food challenge!

    1. Camilla

      Fab Elizabeth, wish I had a veg box;-)

  11. Emily Leary

    This looks really comforting and delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Emily it was very comforting:-)

  12. Paul Wilson

    Getting to the type of weather where this will be required.

    1. Camilla

      Yep, cardi time already!

  13. Laura

    This sounds lovely – I wouldn’t have thought of adding lemon but I want yo try it now. I’ve made a pasta dish before by cooking and pureeing the celeriac with some garlic, herbs and a little cheese. It was comforting but not heavy and made good leftovers 🙂

    1. Camilla

      That sounds good too Laura:-)

  14. Lisa Mags Ryan

    Can’t wait to try this recipe at home! FAB! X

    1. Camilla

      Great Lisa do let me know what you think:-)

  15. Helen @Fuss Free Flavours

    I love celeriac and it makes an excellent soup. Try it with some apples next time too!

    1. Camilla

      Ooh that sounds like a fab idea Helen:-)

  16. Kavita

    I first came across the idea to roast celeriac from Trine Hahnemann but keep forgetting to do it at home more!

    1. Camilla

      Ah that’s interesting – I’m sure my mum has given me a Danish vegetable and celeriac soup recipe from one of my aunts so it must be popular over there!

  17. Maya Russell

    I have eaten celeriac but not recently. Looks like a tasty, warming soup.

    1. Camilla

      It really is fab:-)

  18. Heather Haigh

    I’ve only recently tried Celeriac and did enjoy it but was wondering what to do with it next. Problem solved!

    1. Camilla

      There you go:-)

  19. nazima

    I love the delicate taste of celeriac when roasted, and it is a great side dish, so your soup is a great one I’ll be using for celeriac leftovers in future.

    1. Camilla

      Good idea Nazima, even worth roasting extra just to make the soup:-)

  20. Lindy

    oh that does look lush- love a good soup recipe.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Lindy – it was yummy:-)

  21. William Gould

    I don’t ever remember eating celeriac at all! I presume it’s similar to celery…

    1. William Gould

      Taste wise I mean…

    2. Camilla

      Not really William, it’s difficult to pinpoint but maybe somewhere between parsnip and something less sweet which I can’t think of – maybe celery!

  22. Roz

    celeriac makes a gorgeous soup, such a great recipe for saving money too

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Roz, I have another bargain celeriac in the fridge so might make this again as so easy:-)

  23. Joanne T Ferguson

    What a great use for celeriac! Looks very hearty! Pinned and shared!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Joanne, very kind:-)

  24. Ursula Hunt

    I have shared this with my daughter she loves it

    1. Camilla

      Fab Ursula:-)

  25. Paul Wilson

    Great idea.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Paul:-)

  26. Jacqueline Meldrum

    That looks so good. I’m right in the mood of soup now and of course all this rain just makes me want it more. I really love the sound of the one and would like to dive into it with some crusty bread. You should add it to No Croutons Required so all my readers can drool over it too. Stumbled, pinned, tweeted and yummed.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jacqueline, have entered:-)

  27. tinkertink2010

    I cant believe there is no cream in that! Looks delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Danielle:-)

  28. foodgloriousfoodx

    Simply gorgeous and economical too 🙂 x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Charlene:-)

  29. Dom

    today was soup weather… we had soup too but not so creamy a luscious as yours… I adore celeriac soup but it makes me fart! xx

    1. Camilla

      LOL Dom TMI! I didn’t think it was the sort of thing my reader’s usually share and rushed to see who’d said this – it could only be you really:-)

  30. Homemade & Yummy

    I absolutely love celery root. In fact I have one in my fridge right now. For some reason it is so hard to find in my area. I am in Canada and had to drive into Toronto to a specialty market to get one. Since I was in the area this week I picked one up for the weekend. This soups sounds awesome!!

    1. Camilla

      Gosh that is dedication having to drive all that way to get one!

  31. Melissa

    I am so ready for fall and comfort foods. This totally fits the bill! Can’t WAIT to try it!!

    1. Camilla

      It feels like Autumn has come early in England right now, pouring with rain here!
