Hearty Almond – Knob Celery Soup


A hearty soup for the winter evenings.

  1. 4 tbsp olive or coconut oil
  2. 2 onions, finely chopped
  3. 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  4. 1 knob celery
  5. 3 Cox’s or Braeburn apples
  6. 3 twigs of thyme
  7. 2 bay leaves
  8. 2 litres vegetable stock
  9. 250 ml almond unsweetened
  10. 2 tbsp roasted almond flakes
  11. parsley
  12. pepper, salt
  13. nutmeg

  • Heat the oil in a high cooking pot and add the onions, celery, thyme and bay leaves.
  • Let it simmer until the onion and celery are soft.
  • Peel the knob celery and apples in the meantime. Remove the apple core and cut in pieces of about 2cm. Add to the onion and let it stew for 5 minutes.
  • Pour the stock over the mixture and let it simmer for 30 mins so that the knob celery can become soft.
  • Remove the thyme and bay leaves and mix the soup.
  • Season with pepper, salt and nutmeg.
  • Let the soup cool a little bit and stir in the almond milk, just before serving.
  • Garnish with some apple cubes, almond flakes and some finely chopped parsley.
