Celeriac Soup-- Four Versions

Celery Root and Root Vegetable Soup So one day this Spring-- a chilly day-- our resident son came home from town with an ugly bulbus "root vegetable" that I remembered from the days with my German mother-in-law as "celery root" or celeriac.  It is not the root of the celery most of us are familiar with, the stalks we use in our morning juice, but a root vegetable on its own with a wimpier version of stalks that can grow from it. I looked up some recipes and we innovated. We love this root vegetable. It has a mild celery-like flavor and combines creamily and harmoniously with many other vegetables and flavours. He brought home a few more of these roots and the following soup recipes evolved.  The recipes are: Creamy Mushroom and Celery Root Soup Celery Root and Sauerkraut Soup Root Vegetable and Celery Root Soup Classic French Onion and Celery Root Soup 1.
