  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • small bunch thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 fat garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 celeriac (about 1kg), peeled and chopped
  • 1 potato (about 200g), chopped
  • 1l veg stock (check the label to ensure it’s vegan – we used Marigold)
  • 100ml soya cream
  • 50g blanched hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp truffle oil, plus an extra drizzle to serve


  • STEP 1

In a large saucepan, heat the oil over a low heat. Tie the thyme sprigs and bay leaves together with a piece of string and add them to the pan with the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 10 mins until softened but not coloured.

  • STEP 2

Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 min more, then tip in the celeriac and potato. Give everything a good stir and season with a big pinch of salt and white pepper. Pour in the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for around 30 mins until the vegetables are completely soft.

  • STEP 3

Discard the herbs, then stir through the cream, remove from the heat and blitz until completely smooth. Stir through 1/2 tbsp truffle oil at a time and taste for seasoning – the strength of the oil will vary, so it’s better to start with less oil and add a little at a time.

  • STEP 4

To serve, reheat the soup until piping hot, then ladle into bowls and top with the hazelnuts, some black pepper and an extra drizzle of truffle oil.
