Parsnip celeriac soup

This is another simple soup. The parsnip and celeriac are both fairly subtle so be generous with the herbs.

Parsnip Celeriac Soup
1 onion, diced
2 - 3 parsnips, peeled and diced
1 celeriac, peeled and diced
4 - 6 cups stock or water
lots of fresh herbs (i used thyme and oregano)
salt and pepper

Start by sauteing onion in oil. Cook for 5 minutes until the soften and start to brown.

Add the parsnip and celeriac. Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes to soften and brown slightly. If they stick, add a little water to release from the pan.

Add the stock and herbs. Cook partially covered about 30 minutes until everything is soft.

Puree the mixture until smooth. Add more liquid to thin to the desired consistency.

I made a quick herb sauce by sauteing herbs and garlic in oil then pureeing to make a paste.

Serve with croutons or bread for dipping.
