Mustard-celeriac soup with smoked trout

These days it’s everywhere: mustard soup. I thought it was weird. A mustard sauce, sure, but mustard soup? I was very sceptical… 🙂

But it didn’t keep me from trying it out, on the contrary, I was intrigued. And I have to admit: mustard soup is delicious! Especially when you make it with celeriac and dress it with smoked trout!

Of course the quality of the mustard you use determines the soup. I’ll use this opportunity once more to declare my love for Tierenteyn Stropkes mustard. It’s always on my shopping list for when I happen to pass through Belgium. If you can’t get your hands on Stropkes mustard, try to find a high quality mustard that’s not too sharp. You don’t want to be eating soup with tears running down your cheeks! 😉

Mustard-celeriac soup with smoked trout
Instructions
  1. Peel the celeriac and cut into boiling chunks and add them to the cooking pot.
  2. Peel the onion, cut into halves and into crescents over the pot.
  3. Add one bouillon cube and 0,5l of water. Bring to a boil over a high heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Mix the soup as soon as the celeriac turns soft. When it’s evenly mixed, add the teaspoon of mustard. Mix further. You can’t overdo it: the longer you mix the smoother and creamier the soup’ll get.
  5. If you like, you can add a dash of soy cream for extra creaminess.
  6. Tear the trout fillet over the soup. Serve immediately.
  7. It’s extra tasty with some bread soldiers! 😉
Recipe Notes

You can have celeriac while hot or cold. Grate it for a salad, mash it, steam it in the microwave or bake it in the oven. It’s a versatile tuber!

This is a white soup, so the cauliflower-soup-rule applies: add any vegetable you want, as long as it’s white (e.g. courgette seeds, white parts of a leek,...).

Caroline’s tip: just serve with some bread!
