Yield: 7 cups


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces leeks (1 medium), trimmed, thinly sliced, rinsed well
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 18 ounces celeriac, trimmed, large dice
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (½ lemon)
  • Salt and pinch white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (¼ ounce)


1. In 1-gallon pot, heat oil over medium flame. Sweat leeks with salt until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring often, to prevent browning.

2. Add celeriac to pot and continue sweating until celeriac begins to soften, about 10 minutes more.

3. Add stock and oats. Raise heat and bring soup to boil. Reduce heat, and simmer with lid ajar for 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

4. Puree soup in blender until very smooth.

5. Return soup to pot. Re-heat and season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

6. Garnish with parsley.
