Soup is a staple in our way of eating. Bowls of brothy comfort make an appearance at the table at least a few times a week. We’re even crazy enough to eat soup on hot summer days. But it’s during the chilly months of fall and winter that it’s most satisfying to have soup on a daily basis. One-pot soup meals—studded with chunks of celery root, salted with bacon, fragranced with sage, and laced with red lentils—are all we need to welcome the cold days. If you’ve never had celery root before, we encourage you to try it. It has the texture of a potato, with the bright flavor of fresh, green celery.
