Rather surprised that the celery root I bought a month ago is still good and crunchy, but I did buy another piece of leek to add on to the ones I bought earlier. Yesterday, I bought a pack of Parma Ham to make the chips. I also went looking for horseradish (raw state) but none to be found at my fav Mom&Pop place, so got a bottle of horseradish cream for insurance. Went to another fav shopping place further down the road, and found raw horseradish - so now I have both - tuber and bottle! Guess which I used in the pictures below...... from the bottle! I fell asleep last night and only awoke at 2am, so too late to make the soup, so went to bed. Hence all the cooking was done this morning around 6am, in addition as well, hubby's meals for the day - including breakfast! So tiring!
Considering there were only two main ingredients for the soup, leeks and celery root, and butter! ~ it was pretty tasty. There was also fresh thyme, a bay leaf and enough water for the amount of leeks and celery root used. Later salt, and white pepper (which I forgot) for tasting. Garnished with the parma ham chips, chopped chives and horseradish cream... very good. Hope hubby enjoys it too.
