A few years ago a lady jumped ahead of me at the till at Tesco to ask the employee what something in her hand was. That something was an aubergine. I was amused how can somebody not know what a common vegetable was.  I even told it as a joke to whoever was willing to listen (not proud of it). Then, it happened to me a couple of days ago.

I started getting an Organic Vegetable box delivered to my house from Organic Republic. In my box there was an odd looking vegetable I had somehow never used before:

Needless to say, I didn’t know what it was or what to do with it.  I was quite ashamed of myself, 28 years old and plant based didn’t know what a local vegetable was. Anyway, after a bit of googling I found out the vegetable is called celeriac and as its name might hint it has a mild celery taste. I thought a safe option is to try it out in a soup. 

In the meantime, I had a lot of cooking apples at home and a friend of mine had made a soup that contained apples so I was intrigued to try it as well.  This soup that came out of the pot had a diverse autumn palette of flavours and I think you either love it or you don’t. Everyone that tried it (4 people) thought it was delicious so I hope you do too.
