Black Bean Soup

Here's a black bean soup recipe that includes celeriac. Serve this soup with a mixed green salad, marinated vegetables, or an omelet. You can garnish this soup with thin lemon slices or a sliced boiled egg, or both.



  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a heavy-bottomed soup pot and add the onion, celeriac, and half of the garlic. Cook and stir until tender (about 5 minutes).
  2. Drain the soaked beans and add them to the pot with the vegetable stock or water and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
  4. Add the remaining garlic and add salt to taste and simmer another hour, until the beans are just tender.
  5. Remove half the beans from the pot and purée them in a blender with enough soup liquid to cover.
  6. Return the purée to the pot and reheat and stir until the soup begins to thicken.
  7. Stir in lemon juice and sherry and add ground pepper, salt, and garlic to taste.
