Celery Soup

We may not grow celery again as it's a bit hit and miss. Some of the bunches are really well-formed, others papery. However, this soup makes me think it is worth growing some - thanks to the 'Goodness Green' website.

Everything in the pot (except oil and pepper) was home-grown.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped roughly
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon thyme (optional)
1 head of celery, cleaned & chopped roughly
1 white potato chopped
1 litre of vegetable stock
pepper & salt
  1. Heat the oil in a non stick pot and add the onion and garlic. Cook until softened.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Puree the soup using a blender. Hand held works fine.
  4. Return to the pan, check seasoning and serve.
I do love a straightforward recipe and the result was delicious!


  1. I love celery and I am definitely going to make this recipe.
    Just reading about it made me go and get a stick of celery to eat...and they do say you burn more calories eating celery than you get from it so I have probably got a bit thinner!

  2. Haha! Glad to be of service ๐Ÿ˜†

  3. We've never cracked the part of growing celery or celeriac for that matter

    1. It needs too much water really, I think.
