Celery Root Bisque with Stilton and Apple
This recipe serves: 6  
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
2 shallots, peeled and diced
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 pounds celery root (sometimes called celeriac)
8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 tart apples, such as Granny Smith
1 lemon
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese, such as Stilton

Cooking Instructions
1. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

2. Add the onion and celery and cook until tender and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the shallots and thyme, season lightly with salt and pepper and cook a few minutes longer.

3. Meanwhile, peel and cube the celery root and add it to the pot along with the chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, covered, until celery root is tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, core and dice the apples and sprinkle them with lemon juice so that they do not discolor. Set aside for garnish.

5. Puree the soup in a blender.

6. Ladle the hot soup into bowls and serve garnished with diced apples and crumbled blue cheese.
