I had a few celery roots in my CSA box a few months back, and I decided to re-create the celery root soup I had just happened to have twice in the last week at a great local restaurant, 80 Thoreau, adapted to make it GAPS-legal. To keep it simple in the beginning, just add the mushrooms to your soup to cook after you’ve pureed the other ingredients. If you suffer from candida, you may want to hold off on the mushrooms until you clear that up.


Celery Root Soup

  • 2 quarts chicken stock

  • 2–3 tablespoons animal fat or coconut oil

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 2 celery roots, peeled and cubed



Bring the stock to a boil in a big soup pot, skim, and discard the scum. Add the fat and bring to a simmer.


Add all the vegetables and continue to simmer, covered, until soft (about 20 minutes).


Puree the soup with an immersion blender, and add salt to taste. Garnish with Sautéed Garlicky Mushrooms [recipe in the cookbook] and a drizzle of olive oil, once you’re on Stage 4.
