We adored this creamy, flavorful soup by Becca of One Fine Tomato. For our notes on spice, broth, and garnish, see the notes in the post above.
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 6
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 2 medium celery root (about 2 lbs total), peeled and cut into ½" pieces
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 1 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage
  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and ½ teaspoon salt, sauté until softened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add chili powder and 5-spice powder and sauté for 1 minute. Add celery root, sauté for another minute.
  3. Add broth, and bring to boil. Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook until celery root is tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Puree soup in batches in a blender. Transfer back to pot and stir in coconut milk beverage, remaining salt, and pepper. Add more salt to taste (depends largely on how much salt is in the broth you use.)
