Don’t underestimate the elegance of crispy celery leaves—they’re not only visually stunning but also incredibly easy to prepare.

Nigella Seeds, commonly found in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, impart a robust, oniony-peppery flavor when toasted in a bit of oil. While not essential to the recipe, they add a delightful complexity. If you have them on hand, give them a try—they’ll take your soup to the next level!

What you will need to make this soup

  • Ghee ButterIt adds a nice creamy, buttery flavor to the soup. 
  • Olive Oil: It adds a whole new dimension of flavor, taking a soup from so-so to a spectacular.
  • Bay Leaf: It adds a subtle flavor layer that lends more depth to the soup.

Pro Tips for making a delicious Celery Soup

  1. Sauté Aromatics: Start by sautéing onions, garlic, or leeks in a bit of olive oil or butter to add depth of flavor to your soup base.

  2. Include Potatoes: Adding potatoes to your celery soup not only enhances its creaminess but also provides a subtle sweetness that balances the flavor of the celery.

  3. Use Fresh Celery: Opt for fresh, crisp celery stalks for the best flavor and texture. Avoid celery that looks wilted or has brown spots.

  4. Thinly Slice Celery: To prevent fibrous texture in your soup, thinly slice the celery stalks before cooking.

  5. Add Fresh Herbs: Enhance the flavor profile of your celery soup by incorporating fresh herbs like thyme, parsley, or dill. Add them towards the end of cooking for maximum flavor.

  6. Finish with a Splash of Acid: A squeeze of lemon juice or a splash of white wine vinegar just before serving can brighten up the flavors of the soup and add a refreshing touch.

  7. Experiment with Toppings: Get creative with toppings like crispy bacon, toasted nuts or seeds, croutons, grated cheese, or a dollop of sour cream to add texture and depth to your soup.

  8. Blend Carefully: For a smooth and creamy texture, use an immersion blender or countertop blender to puree the soup until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids to avoid splattering.

  9. Adjust Seasoning: Taste your soup before serving and adjust the seasoning as needed with salt, pepper, or your favorite herbs and spices.

  10. Let it Rest: Allow your celery soup to rest for a few minutes after cooking to allow the flavors to meld together before serving. This will result in a more flavorful and cohesive dish.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a pot over medium heat add ghee and olive oil.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 6 minutes.
  3. Add half of the diced celery, sauté for 5 minutes, then add all the diced vegetables except the rest of the celery and sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Season the vegetables with the black pepper, ginger and turmeric.
  5. Add the rest of the celery and chicken broth, and cook until all the vegetables are tender.
  6. Set aside to cool down and use an immersion blender to purée the soup to your desired consistency.
  7. Garnish with diced celery, diced parsley or diced cilantro before serving.

Notes

  • When opting for cashew cream, a hint of lemon juice can truly elevate the soup’s flavors. However, if you’re using sour cream or yogurt, their inherent tanginess might render the addition unnecessary.
  • For a speedy vegan rendition using cashew cream, simply toss half a cup of cashews into the simmering pot alongside the celery and potatoes to soften them up, then blend everything together seamlessly!
  • To ensure a smooth texture, thinly slicing the celery will prevent any fibrous bits from detracting from the soup’s creaminess.
  • When freezing this delightful concoction, it’s advisable to omit the sour cream initially, as it may develop a granular texture. Simply add it in later when reheating for optimal enjoyment.
