Cream of wild garlic and celeriac soup

March 19, 2013


Author Notes: I am often inspired by nature when it comes to inventing a new recipe. Today I was out walking along the river and I spotted some young wild garlic leaves. I was pushed for time tonight so I made a quick soup with some of the garlic leaves, celeriac, and creamed cashew nuts.kirsty wright
