  • 1 large round turnip
  • 4 small potatoes
  • 1/2 a celeriac

Préparation : 15 min.

The various stages:

1Cutting and washing food

Wash the whites of the leeks and celery stalks. Peel the turnip, potatoes and celeriac. Slice the whites of the leeks and celery stalks. Dice the turnips, potatoes and celeriac.


Melt the butter in a casserole dish and add the vegetables. Fry for a few minutes, add the water and salt and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for a further 35 minutes: the vegetables should be tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. 5 min before the end of cooking time, add the single cream. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed, maybe adding a little freshly ground pepper.


Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 240° on the grill setting.

4Preparing your slices of bread

Cut the bread into 6 slices, 1 cm thick. Slice the Beaufort. Cover the slices of bread generously with strips of Beaufort.

5To the oven!

Place in the oven until the cheese has browned.

6It's ready!

Ladle the soup into each soup plate and arrange the grilled slices of Beaufort on toast.

Tip: use Reblochon instead of Beaufort!

You can replace the Beaufort toast with slices of bread topped with strips of Reblochon cheese. In this case, toast the slices of bread in the toaster or oven. Place them in the bottom of soup plates, cover with Reblochon cheese and pour ladles of boiling soup over them: the cheese will slowly melt with the heat.
