Celery-Celery Soup is a creamless soup composed of chicken broth, celery, celery root, apples and herbs. A lovely, elegant 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.
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!
