Very Easy
Here is a soup recipe easy to treat with a surprisingly fresh taste.


Number of serving: 2
1 1/2 tablespoons butter

1 small onion, chopped

2 medium celery ribs, chopped

1 small or 1/2 medium leek, white part only, sliced, green part reserved

4 small garlic cloves, passed through a press

1 medium celery root, peeled and chopped

1/2 medium idaho potato, peeled and chopped

3 Bosc pears, divided, peeled, cored and cut into a medium dice

4 1/2 cup vegetable stock

1 bouquet garni of 2 bay leaves, 5 sprigs of parsley and 2 sprigs of thyme

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons honey

1 sprig rosemary

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  • Melt the butter in a dutch oven or another heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat and add the onion, celery and leek. Sauté for about 6 minutes, until softened but not browned. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Next, add the celery root, the potato, one of the pears and the chicken stock. To this, add the bouquet garni and the reserved green part of the leek.
  • Increase the heat and bring the stock to a boil. Season with salt and pepper, stir, and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  • In the meantime, heat the honey in a small skillet over medium to medium-high heat until it bubbles. Add the rest of the pear and the sprig of rosemary and stir until the pear is well caramelized and soft.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar and stir until everything is coated, about another 2 minutes. Discard the rosemary and set the pears aside.
  • Purée the soup using your preferred method, either with a blender or food processor or with an immersion blender (my method of choice).
  • Check for seasonings and adjust if needed. Serve the soup topped with the caramelized pears.
