Celeriac and Apple Soup

You may not have ever thought to use the vegetable celeriac in anything, but it is actually really delicious and healthy!  It may look odd with its gnarly root appearance but it has a mild savory celery flavor. I love using it in finely chopped as a grain free substitute for rice, but it is also delicious in soups!  The one I am sharing with you today is simple but so good!  I combine the celeriac with apple and the flavors are a match made in heaven!  This is perfect for a light dinner with a salad on the side or as a first course.
