Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the lentils in a colander and drain. Scrub and peel celery root, potatoes and carrots. Peel onions. Cut the potatoes into large pieces and dice the rest of the vegetables very small.

2.

Bring the broth to a boil in a pot. Add vegetables, drained lentils and bay leaf, cover and simmer over low heat for about 40 minutes Stir occasionally and some broth if needed.

3.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan, stir in the flour and sauté until dark brown. Ladle some cooking water purchases from the lentils and stir into the roux (be careful of splashes!). Stir roux into the lentil stew and let simmer uncovered for another 10 minutes so that the stew thickens slightly. Stir occasionally and if needed, add some broth. Add salt, pepper and vinegar to taste and remove the bay leaf.

4.

Fry bacon until golden brown a nonstick frying pan. Sprinkle over the soup before serving garnished with the parsley.
