Celeriac Bacon Soup “Keto Split Pea Soup” | Keto Recipes | Paleo Recipes

welcome to Keto meals and recipes dot com,
the use of celeriac, or celery root
which is a really great substitute for
potatoes has inspired me to make quite a
number of recipes, the celeriac recipe
I’m demonstrating today is a substitute
for either a split pea or potato soup,
this soup is hearty nutritious
comforting and very filling, so let’s get
going and make my celeriac bacon soup
for this soup the macronutrient ratio is
3.6 to 1, with 6.4 grams of total carbs,
1.1 grams of soluble fiber, 0.5 gram of
insoluble fiber, resulting in 4.9 grams
of net carbs per serving, as with my
other recipes I begin with fresh whole
food ingredients, which I always weigh
out and prepare before beginning to cook
even though I’ve used celeriac many
times I still find it interesting how
unfortunate looking this vegetable, is
both on the outside and on the inside
where you have all these dark spots and
circles, but don’t let the appearance
distract you from using this really good
tasting and much lower carbs substitute
for potato recipes, after peeling the
celeriac bulb and cutting it into even
wedges, and then into even size cubes, I
next dice the celery stock and I also
use some of the leaves, to make cutting
the bacon easier here’s a tip, put your
pack of bacon into the freezer to harden
a bit, about 30 minutes should do it
then cut the bacon as I’m showing here, also
roughly cut the garlic, in my stirring pot
set over medium heat, I first add the
ghee and when it’s sizzling, add the
chopped bacon and saute until your bacon
is starting to get crispy, you can place
your bacon into the pot while it’s still
chilled and clumped together, and as it’s
frying just use a spatula to separate
the pieces, when your bacon is starting
to get crispy scoop it out with a
slotted spoon, set the bacon aside
it might be a good idea to reserve about a
quarter cup of this prepared bacon which
you can use to garnish at the end,
to the bacon fat which you left in the
pot, add the diced celeriac, chopped celery,
and garlic, saute for about ten to
fifteen minutes, and stir the vegetables
occasionally, next add the salt and
pepper and return the prepared bacon to
the pot, and pour in the chicken stock
here you can substitute two cups of the
chicken stock, with two cups of the bone broth
in this recipe I would not use
just chicken bone broth, because chicken
bone broth has a much stronger taste than
stock, and you don’t want to overpower
the delicious taste of celeriac, when
you’ve added all your ingredients
stir and then cover your pot with a lid, and
simmer for 20 minutes on medium heat
in the meanwhile hard-boil 3 eggs, when
the eggs are done drain the hot water
from the pot and add cold water in order
to cool the eggs, and when they’re cool
to the touch
peel off the egg shell, now that your
soup is done reduce the heat to low and
add the heavy cream, and olive oil and
stir well, continue cooking at a low
simmer for 5 minutes
next pour the cooked broth into a
blender only filling the container to
half full, but remember to puree hot
liquids in batches, and before you turn
on the power place a tea towel or oven
mitt on the lid and hold down gently as
you puree, to a smooth silky looking
texture and voila
that is all there is to making this
delicious celeriac bacon soup, and you
can serve it now and enjoy it as it is,
or you can fancy things up with this
optional garnishing step, here is how I
like to garnish this soup, I get my cold
hard-boiled eggs and cut through the
whites but leave the egg yolk as a ball
then I chop the whites into very small
bits
and I press the yolks through a
fine-mesh sieve to create very fine yolk granules
the final step is to place
about one teaspoon of the chopped egg
whites just off the center area of your
bowl, and place the egg yolk granules
next to the whites, then for a bit of
contrast decorate with a green leaf such
as cilantro, and sprinkle the reserved
bacon between the whites and the yolk
if you think your bacon is too wide
just cut the bacon into smaller ribbons
lastly also I used a tiny piece from the
top of the celery stock, I’d like to
mention that this garnish is not only
pretty to look at it’s also very tasty
addition to the soup, but as I mentioned
earlier the entire garnishing step or
any combination of it is completely
optional, I just thought I would show you
how to take this very simple ordinary
soup, and create a fancy presentation
which you can serve either hot or cold,
enjoy. Lastly I’d just like to make a few
meal suggestions, the soup goes very well
with my keto pan fried lemon lamb chops
or with the keto chicken souvlaki, I’d
really like to hear from you so in the

paired your soup with, thank you very
