Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Peel 1 celeriac and cut into small pieces.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Wash 1 potimarron (Japanese chestnut pumpkin), but there is no need to peel it. Cut into small pieces.

You need to end up with about the same weight of celeriac and potimarron.

Stage 3 - 4 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Prepare 1 onion and chop.

Stage 4 - 1 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Pour 5 tablespoons olive oil into a large saucepan on high heat. When really hot, add the chopped onion.

Salt and pepper, then cook for 1 minute without colouring.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Add the pieces of celeriac and potimarron and cook for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stage 6 - 20 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Add 1 litre whole milk to completely cover the vegetables (adjust the quantity as necessary).

Salt and pepper, then leave on low heat to simmer until the vegetables are soft.

Stage 7 - 4 min.
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
When the vegetables are cooked, add 1 tablespoon Mustard and blend until the soup is smooth.

Stage 8
Potimarron and celeriac autumn soup
Check the seasoning before serving.
You will see in the photo for stage 2 that I have used a green variety of potimarron, but the more usual orange sort will work just as well. You can also use ordinary pumpkin, though this needs to be peeled.

The proportions stated here (1 potimarron, 1 celeriac, 1 onion) are only for guidance, so do feel free to adapt them.
Several days in the fridge in a sealed container. Freezes very well.
Home made.

Ali Baba bread
This bread is so-called because its magical sesame flavour is non-negotiable! The triple dose comes from tahini (sesame paste), sesame oil added to the dough before kneading, and toasted sesame seeds both in the dough and on top of the loaves.
