Oh soo much Celery..

Ok I may have planted quite a few more celery plants than we needed... With more growing in the patch I needed to get busy with it.

I did make an awesome cream of celery soup though.  Another idea my mum uses which is lovely is boil it and mix it into your potato mash.

Cream of Celery Soup
  • 20-30g of butte
  • 5 cups of chopped celery
  • 1 large leek sliced
  • 2 rashers of bacon chopped
  • 1.2L of hot water
  • 4 tsp of veg stock
  • 200ml of light cream
  • chopped chives (from the garden of course!)
No need to add salt to this dish, there is enough in the butter, bacon and stock... the boiled down celery will also make it even saltier!
  1. Melt the butter, fry the bacon and leek until the leeks are soft and clear looking.
  2. Add the hot water and stock powder
  3. Add the celery and bring to the boil
  4. Cook until the celery is soft (I cooked them on a slow boil for about an hour)
  5. Process with a blender (if you want super smooth soup, sieve the liquid through a strainer)
  6. Add the cream and bring to the boil again, then simmer for 5mins
  7. Serve with chopped chives
Yum! smooth, creamy and tasty
Serves: Makes a few bowls and some.
