Celery root soup with fried boletus

Winter is slowly inching closer and the mushrooms are starting to come in season. Fried boletus are always amazing, but with the celery, it matches up so well and warms nicely from the inside.


Useful ingredient information:


Celery root

It's mostly known, for soup stock but it tastes great in simple dishes like soup or even as a "Schnitzel". The aroma is from the high proportion of essential oils which make it extremely nutritional.


Boletus

Trough its firm meat and distinct taste it is highly recommended in dishes where the mushroom is one of the main roles. As an alternative, you can also use oyster mushrooms.

Ingredients (4 servings):


Soup

  • 2 onions

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 1 celery root
