Celery Root Soup With Granny Smith Apples
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 mediums celery roots , peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 bay leaf
1 unpeeled Granny Smith apple , very finely diced
Working in batches, pour the soup into a blender, cover the lid with a towel (the hot liquid tends to erupt), and blend on high. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls. Place a spoonful of the diced apple in the center of each serving, drizzle the Chive Oil around the apple, and serve.
