Creamy Celery Soup - no cream!

Recommended Posts

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.


Serves 6-8.
