Easy Celery Soup
Celery Soup Made Easy
Celery soup is easy to make and a delicious vegetarian soup. I love cooking with fresh fruits and vegetables because it easy and so healthy for the body. If you are vegan, use coconut milk in replacement of the 2% milk.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 celery stocks
- 1 thinly sliced leek
- 2 red apples (peeled,cored, and diced)
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 14 oz low-fat coconut milk or 2%milk
- 2 1/2 cups of vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- celery leaves for garnish
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place almonds on baking sheet and toast 8-10 minutes. Cool.
Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add celery, leak, and salt. Cook for 5 minutes. Vegetables should be soft after 5 minutes of cooking. Stir in apples and curry powder. Cook for 2 minutes. Add milk, broth, and water. Bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Puree soup in a blender or use an immersion blender until smooth. Return to pot. Add lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Add celery leaves and almonds as a beautiful garnish.
Serve and enjoy!
