Celery Soup

Posted by terrepruitt on May 24, 2011

My friend made a comment on my celery post.  She offered the recipe for celery soup (it’s in comment #5).  Awesome, you know I am on a soup kick.  There are a lot of recipes out there for celery soup, of course, but it is nice to have a recipe from a friend.  A nice tried and true recipe.  I made it tonight, but I made some adjustments.

Since I don’t like pepper, I only put a sprinkle in, but I think this might have kept it from having much flavor so I added the marjoram which — to me — tied the flavors together nicely.

1 bunch celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 parsnips, chopped
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp marjoram
a sprinkle of black pepper
a sprinkle of salt
48 ozs chicken stock

Sautee onion in olive oil, then add the parsnips.  Cook the parsnips for a few minutes.  When the parsnips start to get tender, add the celery and spices, cook it for a few minutes.  Then add the stock.  Let it simmer for awhile, then let it come to a boil.  I let it cool for a bit then blend in blender or with a stick blender.

This is becoming my standard method of cooking soup.  I have just been changing the ingredients.

I will probably try the celery soup with an apple -as my friend mentions- one of these days.  What about you?  I would love to hear what you’ve come up with.
