I have received quite a few messages of requests for recipes with agretti and, this year, I have obliged…
Today I propose this cream of celeriac with agretti; pleasant to eat in the first warmth of spring but even more so in these days so crisp that they require the open flame of the fireplace again.

And like all self-respecting creams, they must be accompanied by croutons.
I used to make them by cutting bread into cubes and toasting them in the oven or in a pot but, thanks to the PanBiscò Company in Altamura, I discovered these very practical as well as tasty artisanal Tozzapane crostini: preservative-free, toasted and seasoned with extra virgin olive oil and oregano.

Saporite and crunchy, they are perfect for my use today but also simply to enjoy as a snack.

    At this point, with an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
