Lentil Soup with Celery Root
Hi Everyone, need a soup to get you through this cold weather? Try this Lentil Soup with Celery Root!
It’s warming, healthy (vegan and gluten free) and it has that freshness you crave in the Winter from the celery stalks and root in the recipe.
I used celery root from my local farmer’s market Roots to River farm. This recipe is definitely inspired by the seasons and what’s available through the Winter.
I love lentils, they are so hearty and satisfying. It’s so nice to make a huge batch of soup and have it last for days to heat up whenever you are craving a bowl.
I also love celery because it’s so fresh and healthy, it makes any soup broth much better – this soup is like a celebration of celery because it includes the stalk and the root.
The coconut oil in this recipe adds the “fat” component that you would get in a soup that contains meat, like a chicken soup, you would be amazed how coconut oil adds that extra something that makes this soup very satisfying. I find myself adding more coconut oil on top with every serving. The coconut oil give you a “stick to your ribs” feeling when having this Lentil Soup.
