This celeriac soup is tasty. The quality Safcol Premium Smoked Salmon provides delicious flavour as well as giving your body a healthy dose of protein and fat. The type of fat in salmon called omega 3 fat is polyunsaturated fat and is essential to include in your diet. Your body does not make this fat and requires it for healthy brain, heart, and artery function. The type of omega 3 fat found in seafood is better absorbed by your body than plant varieties which only convert around 1% to the type your body can use.

This Smoked salmon fennel celeriac soup includes vitamin D, iron and zinc which assists your immune system to function at its best. Omega-3 fat has anti-inflammatory properties which may reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as type two diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

An onion is a good friend to your immune system with a specific antioxidant known as quercetin, known to support optimal immune health. If you can use extra virgin olive oil you are adding not only another heart-healthy fat, but this type of olive oil has over 36 different antioxidants. Antioxidants fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body.

Fennel and celeriac are good sources of fibre that are needed for your gut health.

Fennel provides many nutrients which support the health of your body including vitamin C which is a vitamin needed to create collagen. Collagen is needed for healthy gums, ligaments, tendons and skin. Vitamin A supports the health of your eyes, potassium which keeps your blood pressure at a healthy level and folate which is needed for DNA synthesis and repair. Fennel is also a source of magnesium which assists with muscular contraction and function.

Celeriac also contains vitamin C and potassium, and vitamin K which is a fat-soluble vitamin needed for creating strong bones as well as allowing your blood to clot normally. Celery root is a good source of vitamin B6 which assist in energy production from the food which you eat. This is a great way to add excitement and delicious flavour to a traditional celeriac soup recipe.
