Kumara and Celery Soup

This is such a classic NZ soup, everybody seems to know how to make this one: You just need some kumara (I used the red ones, peeled). Cook about 2 large kumara with 3 or 4 celery sticks (with leaves, most Kiwis do not add the leaves here, but celery leaves have lots of flavour and they are perfect for soup) in a litre of light vegetable stock. When the celery and kumara are soft blend well and serve. 

Serves 4.

  1. Sounds simple. Do you use any seasonings?

  2. We like to put smoked salt on it, but it doesn't really need anything, as long as you use a good and tasty vegetable broth as a base.

  3. Hi there. The current Food on Friday is all about potatoes, sweet potatoes and kumara! So it would be great if you linked this in. This is the link . Have a good week.
