Celery-Celery Soup

We haven’t discussed celery much. I happen to love the stuff. Cooked or raw, it’s terrific on a crudite platter as well as in salads, stews, soups and casseroles.

One night, a few years back, I had a casserole for dinner which happened to have some minced celery as one of its components. After dinner, I saw a pile of green on the side of Bill’s plate. He commented, “It would have been better without the lettuce.” Huh? So you can imagine his reaction when he heard I was making celery soup. Or what he said when he saw me pull the nubbly celery root out of the fridge.

It was then and there I decided to make only a half batch. He’s the one who missed out as this Celery-Celery Soup with a touch of apple for sweetness was  lovely!

A Simple Way to Get Your Vegetables

Sliced celery, chunks of apples and celery root, diced onion along with a sprig of thyme and a bay leaf were simmered in chicken broth, then pureed. No cream, just a thin puree of pure vegetables.  A super easy recipe. The celery flavor is quite subtle with a touch of sweetness from the apples.  Not so pretty, not so exciting, but  still a tasty starter before my meal. Bill didn’t even ask for a spoonful. No surprise there. If you’re a fan of celery, this may be just the recipe for you. Never tried celery root? Here’s your chance!

  1. I love the idea of mixing celery with apple – what a healthy, tasty soup!

  2. And finally Bill like it? Because I would love it! It looks so good and I like the mixed between apple and celery! Have a nice weekend 😉

  3. I love celery too but haven’t tried the root yet. I’m sure I’d enjoy this soup:@)

  4. This is a great starter, I agree. Need to add less liquid next time – mine was a little thin but yours looks lovely!

  5. Yummy! This soup looks delicious!

  6. It looks like I’m in the minority this week. I didn’t care much for the soup. At least Eduardo ate it… and twice! We have hot sauce to thank for that. 🙂

  7. I happen to love celery too and want people to learn about more ways to cook with it. . LOVE this soup, Liz!!!

  8. Liz, the soup looks like a yummy dessert! Love the presentation!

  9. What a delightful presentation of your soup! I enjoyed this, it was good with my substitution of parsnip in place of celery root!

  10. Your soup looks wonderful served in those adorable little bowls, very pretty. Happy Anniversary
    to you too, Liz, it has been a fun four years.

  11. I love soups that are purely veggies. Sounds like this one might need a bit of pizazz. It looks pretty to me though – the way you presented it people would love I’m sure!

  12. I love how thick and luscious your soup looks. I went with the full 6 cups of broth and should have remembered that Dorie likes her soups a bit thiner. Bill and I both enjoyed this soup, he’s not as picky as I once thought! Happy Anniversary, Lizzy!

  13. I’m trying to make more soups this season. And I just bought and used celery root in a Chopped last night. I have half left. This will be delish way to use it. Pinned! 🙂 You should bring it by #theWeekendSocial linky I co-host. I’d love to see it there! We’re live thru Sunday 900 PM EST. http://thekitchenchopper.com/indexBlog.php/theweekendsocial-40-recipediy-linky-and-skinnyfied-chicken-pad-thai/

  14. I happen to love celery….the stalk kind is what I have most often…love the crunch….and fresh flavor. But what I’m thinking about now is just what all you went through to get such pretty pics. LOL Especially the garnish of crame fraiche….all of those little ridges/riffles are just terrific. Good job on the photos for sure! I just would have liked to be there to watch. LOL Don’t you just love ice cream scoops???? And….just how many do you have??? LOL

  15. Our husbands don’t know what they’re missing. I really loved this one. I made the curried apples and croutons which were great. I love those little bowls. SO cute!

  16. We love celery, but I wasn’t sure if we would love the soup. Turns out we are fanatical about this soup. Lovely styling this week – how fun to have your sister there, wish I could come see her art and creations 🙂

  17. A simple and delicious way to get your vegetables! I prefer soups without cream..so this is perfect.
    Have a lovely weekend, Liz!

  18. Beautiful light and delicious with lots of autumn flavours. Just as Bill has some apprehensions, I think my teenagers may too but this would be great for a light girly luncheon on the weekend. Take Care, BAM

  19. dear Lizzy, What a pretty presentation of this soup. I am sure it is good and it is healthy too. Blessings dear for a beautiful weekend. ~ Catherine

  20. I really like celery soup now but when I was a kid I could just look at it and get sick. I swore it looked like slime. Sorry! Yours looks fantastic and I could eat both bowlsful!

  21. I might be on team Bill here, but I’m willing to be convinced! I am sort of celery indifferent, but you make this soup look and sound so good, I’d love to try it and change my mind! Lovely job, Liz.

  22. Celery root is big in India, too, I believe.

    Interesting to see a soup with no cream but that probably means the potage is even better for you.

    Bill does seem to be an endless source of smiles…I can see why you’ve been married so long =)

  23. The soup sounds amazing, and I really want your soup bowls! LOVE ♡

  24. I love celery but don’t have many recipes that use it for anything more than a light flavor along with carrots and onions. Combining it with apple sounds delicious. Our temperatures have finally dropped and I’m thinking it’s soup weather here.

  25. A good, informative write-up and beautiful photographs of this soup. Didn’t think for a minute that this would be a winner or even a contender with Bill. Glad that Maddy also inherited the family genes for trying and enjoying a variety of foods. I am so enjoying the pictures of Maddy’s visit and seeing the display of her jewelry. I know it was a successful show. Your goodies table was fabulous, Liz. The flowers, gorgeous. I know it was a fun event for both of you. And, glad Maddy cooked dinner as a reward.

  26. You’re right, not the prettiest. But I did think it was tasty. I did make the curried croutons, which I thought was a nice touch. Simple, light, yummy. Your soup looks beautiful.

  27. He saw the root in it’s natural state? That would scare him. It scares me. But your presentation was so beautiful how could Bill resist? So glad you had your sister to share the soup with.

  28. I love celery root. This soup would have beautiful flavours and it’s so perfect for your falling temperatures. I’ve never heard of a ‘flurry’ but I’m guessing that’s when snow’s swirling around? xx

  29. I really am not a celery fan but with in soup form? I think I could be warmed by it 😀

    Cheers

  30. Liz, this was a nice and elegant soup and your appetizer-style presentation is very pretty! Too bad that Bill did not like it too much, we loved it and there were not left-overs in sight!
    From your terrific pictures on FB, I can see that your sister Maddie is one talented designer, her jewellery looks beautiful, I wish I lived closer, I would have dropped by and marveled at her creations and your display!
    Have a nice Sunday!

  31. Celery and apple make a good match in this soup and even in a smoothie or juice. What a nice styling, Liz!

  32. Most unusual. Did you know eating some celery each day naturally lowers high blood pressure?

  33. We enjoyed this one too. Luckily my husband eats vegetables but my son well he ate celery sticks.

  34. It’s so hard to believe we’ve been cooking together for four years! I never imagined what a wonderful experience this would turn out to be. I enjoyed this soup, too, and like you, I’ve got it all to myself.

  35. You managed to make this soup look pretty! I would have been with Bill a few years ago, but I now quite like celery – but not so much the celeriac. Still, this soup was good.

  36. i always enjoy your presentation – with or without raspberries 🙂

    I can’t believe we have been doing this for four years already. Wow…

  37. So different Liz, I love the combo of celery and apple.
