Warm, Hearty Winter Soup With Fresh, Paleo, Focaccia Bread.
Celeriac is a vegetable often forgotten about because people are unsure how to use it. Can you believe that celeriac goes amazing well in soup! Especially combined with other root vegetables like sweet potato. This one-pot-wonder is very simple to make and extremely flavoursome. It will warm you up in no time at all during the colder months and keep you full and satisfied.
Make a big batch, keep it in the fridge, heat it up and you are ready to go. The vegetables used can be easily supplemented with other vegetables you have on hand (e.g. orange sweet potato instead of white) and you can adjust the ingredients according to your taste.
But there is no soup without freshly sliced, warm bread on the side! Team this dish up with our GH Produce Paleo Focaccia and you really have yourself a winner.
