Celeriac and pear soup

  • serves 6
  • Easy

Celeriac is a classic vegetable to make soup from, but adding pear and ginger takes it to another level. This is brilliant made ahead then frozen. Serve with toasts spread with creamy blue cheese. Celeriac will discolour and turn brown once cut, so either use it straight away or drop it into a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon juice
