OK, this is a fantastic soup! I've made it twice this year & am about to make it again. I think what makes it creamy w/o cream is the celeriac (celery root). So simple and so good. I think it's actually better tasting after it sits for a day or two. Also, if you are bloated, this makes you pee your brains out!
1 head celery, washed, trimmed of strings, and coarsely chopped (include some leaves)
1 knob celeriac (celery root) or 2 sm. potatoes, peeled and diced
3 med. onions, peeled and diced
1 qt. chicken stock
3/4 tsp. celery salt
1/2 tsp. celery seed
Freshly ground pepper
Fresh parsley, finely chopped, for garnish
Simmer the vegetables, covered in the chicken stock in a large saucepan until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables, reserving the cooking liquid. Puree the vegetables, adding a little liquid as needed. Stir the puree into the reserved cooking liquid and add the seasonings. Serve hot or cold. (Also freezes well).
**Celery root is difficult to peel but it adds a full earthy flavor. After peeling, use immediately or drop in cold water with lemon juice or vinegar to prevent it from turning brown.
Creamy Celery Soup - no cream!
