This soup is creamy (although contains no dairy), savory and comforting for a cold, winter night.
Cream of Celery Root and Spinach Soup
Combine leek, celery root, spinach and water in a deep sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes till vegetables are soft.
Poor the vegetables and liquid into a blender or food processor and puree (in batches, if necessary) until smooth.
Return to the rinsed pan and season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Reheat slowly.
Heat a non-stick skillet (do not add any oil). Add the pine nuts and toast till golden brown, stirring occasionally so they do not stick. Sprinkle them over the soup and serve.
