Spiced Creamy Celery Root Soup

I love technology. And I love social media. After all, if it were not for social media I would never have met my friend "JC". She is a like-minded (though half my age) person that I met on a social networking site geared toward health, nutrition and weight loss. We share recipes, cooking ideas and provide each other with support and inspiration when needed. This is her recipe and I think you will find this to be quite delicious. Who knows, maybe one day we will actually meet. Until then, I look forward to our continued virtual friendship. Spiced Creamy Celery Root Soup

1 vidalia onion, chopped
1 celery root, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 green apple chopped
3 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp raw cashews
1/4 cup soy, rice or almond milk

Sautee onion, celery root and celery stalks in olive oil until soft. Add broth and 3/4 of green apple (reserve the rest for garnish) and simmer about 10-15 minutes.

While soup base is simmering, puree cashews and soy, rice or almond milk in a food processor or high powered blender until it becomes a fine cream. Set aside.

Puree simmered soup in food processor or blender and add cashew cream until well incorporated. Garnish with the rest of the green apple and sprinkle with nutmeg.
