4 leeks, washed and sliced

50g butter

1 tbsp olive oil

How to make it

Feed your soul with this winter-warming delicious watercress and celeriac soup, with a crunchy goat’s cheese crouton.  Any of our Goat’s cheeses would work for this, but how about trying Valençay AOC, part of the Christmas Explorer and Christmas Extravaganza Cheese boxes?

  • Gently cook the leeks in the butter and olive oil until soft but not coloured.
  • Add the celeriac and stock, bring to the boil and simmer until the celeriac is soft.
  • Add the bags of watercress and blend until smooth, then season.
  • Cool. Will freeze for up to 3 months.
  • To serve, defrost the soup in the fridge overnight, then tip into a saucepan and reheat.
  • Top each toasted baguette slice with some goat’s cheese to make the goat’s cheese crouton, then add a slice to each bowl with a sprig of watercress.
