In a medium-size pot, sautée the shallot with little oil. In the meantime, peel, clean and dice celeriac and potatoes. Put these ingredients in the pot with the shallot and add saffron and vegetable broth.

Bring the soup to a boil, lower the heat, put a lid on the pot and simmer for about 15 minutes until the potatoes and celeriac are tender.

Remove from heat and blend with a blender.

Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped pistachio. Serve the celeriac and saffron soup hot.
