  • cooking pot
  • frying pan
  • mixer / blender


  • ½ celeriac
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 5 leek
  • 1 liter water
  • 1 cube vegetable broth
  • 50 ml soja cream
  • 8 gr parsley fresh
  • 4 tbl spoon olive oil
  • white pepper and salt
  • frying oil


  • Peel the celeriac. Cut off ⅕ and grate it with a coarse grater. Heat the oil in the deep fryer. (I use a small deep pan for this, fill it 3 cm with oil and fry the celeriac with it. I then put the oil through a sieve or cloth and save it for frying small quantities again) Remove the celeriac from the oil and let it drain on kitchen paper.
  • Clean the leek. Cut 3 of the 5 leeks into fine rings. Grate the garlic. Cut the rest of the celeriac into pieces.
  • Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a cooking pot and briefly fry the garlic, leek and celeriac. Cover with 1 liter of water. Add the vegetable stock cube. Place the lid on the pot and let it simmer until everything is done.
  • In the meantime, also cut the other 2 leeks into fine rings and stew them in a little oil until done (we will add these at the end).
  • When the soup is ready, add the chopped parsley and mix until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Add the stewed price. These pieces give the soup an extra "bite". Finally, stir in the cream.
  • Serve warm and finish the plates with a spoonful of fried celeriac and some extra parsley.

This leek soup puts an innovative twist on the classic recipe by adding fried celeriac, which offers a surprisingly crunchy texture compared to the silky soup.
The soup is prepared with fresh leek and celeriac, which form the basis of this nutritious and deliciously warming meal. For the soup, I simmered half the leek separately and only added it afterwards, which gives you an extra “bite” with every bite.
Enriched with parsley and a hint of garlic, this soup offers a perfect balance between spiciness and depth of flavor.
The soy cream finish not only provides a delicious creaminess, but also makes this dish an excellent choice for those looking for plant-based alternatives.
Suitable for any occasion, our leek soup with fried celeriac is a real culinary discovery that both nourishes and warms.
