about 2 large packets of celery stalks (about 1kg) – can be without leaves, fresh or frozen (chopped)
4 medium onions (peeled, cut into wedges)
1 whole garlic (crushed wish side of knife blade and peeled)
2 litres of water
4 chicken cubes (10g each)
2-3 tbs olive oil
rainbow peppercorns – optional
Place celery, onions and garlic with olive oil in a large pot and fry/simmer for a while.
Add water, cubes and cook covered on medium fire for about 45 minutes.
Remove from fire, blend the soup, optionally season with freshly ground pepper and serve.
You can serve this soup with chicken and fresh bread or mashed potatoes on a side.
Serve 8 people as a side dish or 4 people as a main dish.
- When I make “Homemade Curry Paste” I use only celery leaves, leftover stalks I chop, freeze and collect them till I have enough to make a soup.
Happy New Year Margot! That soup looks so good! I had planned to make soup and bread today, but all I ended up doing was laundry, watching a movie, and some minor organizing. Oh well! ; )
Happy 2008 Margot! the soup looks just what I need after all the holiday binging:) I’ve made cauliflower soup too tonight, so will post it soon!
Celery soup sounds interesting. I like the idea of freezing the letfover celery stalks. I know I often end up throwing some out because I could not finish them fast enough.
What a lovely fresh soup to start the year!
Happy New Year, all the best for 2008
Dear Margot, this looks so yummy, I like soups!!! Have a wonderful New Year!!! Gloria
Dear Margot, this looks so yummy, I like soups!!! I want to whish you a wonderful New Year! Gloria
I love creamed soups of all kinds..this sounds very tasty Margot!!!
That looks so yummy and creamy but without the fat of creamy soup. A good healthy soup for a new year. It’s a good idea that you try to use all parts of the celery.
what an intriguing soup recipe!! and the rainbow peppercorns sound like a lovely addition.
happy belated new year!! :0)
