A comforting soup with diced celery roots, apples, carrots and cooked white beans. 


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 small carrot, diced

  • 1 cup celery root, diced 

  • 1 apple (granny smith), diced 

  • ½ cup cooked beans

  • 3 cup water

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • Fresh dill, for garnish


  1. Add in diced celery root and apple. Give it a stir.

  2. Add in cooked beans and pour water over these. Bring it to boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer. 

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, lemon juice and flour. 

  4. Take a ladle of simmering water and pour it into the yolk mixture. Whisk it super quickly. Repeat this with two more ladles of water.

  5. Pour this mixture into the pot. Keep stirring the soup while pouring it. Let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.

  6. Add in salt and pepper and remove from the heat. 

  7. Garnish with chopped fresh dill before serving.


  1. This is a chunky soup and we don't recommend blending it.
  2. To stop the diced celery roots and apples from getting brown, put them in a bowl with a mixture of water and lemon. 
  3. Be careful when adding the egg yolk and lemon sauce into the simmering soup. First add a ladle of simmering water from the pan and pour it into the yolk mixture. Immediately whisk it fast. Repeat this with two more ladles of water.
