Veloute is a smooth and creamy soup.  This recipe features celeriac. If you’re not familiar with celeriac it is a turnip-root vegetable or sometimes referenced as a celery nob.  I love to serve this with warm spiced bread and curl up in front of the fire. Watch my video to see this dish come to life.  Let me know what you think of this recipe below!
