White Velvet Soup

Celeriac and potatoes are the base of this deceptively rich soup. Serve as the first course of a refined menu.

Cooking Light AUGUST 2003

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups soup, 1/2 teaspoon oil, and 1 1/2 teaspoons onions)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (1/4-inch) diced peeled celeriac (celery root; about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 4 cups (1/4-inch) diced peeled Yukon Gold potato, (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

Preparation

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large stockpot; bring to a boil. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Place half of potato mixture in a blender; process until smooth. Repeat with remaining potato mixture. Return pureed potato mixture to pan; stir in wine and salt. Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove soup from heat, and stir in milk.

Divide soup evenly among 6 bowls; drizzle oil evenly over soup. Sprinkle with onions.
