Healthy Vegan Cream of Celery Soup

Updated on October 14, 2011

Have a healthy hot cup of soup on a cold rainy day!

Soup is one of those hot foods that just warm you inside and out. Soup is wonderful on a rainy day when you are cold and tired. This recipe will give you the nutrition you need to face the rest of the afternoon at work. I like to freeze soup in single serving reusable containers. That way you can bring a soup lunch to work. This will save you time, money, and calories. Try it with a crusty hard roll and hot herbal tea. It makes a great lunch!

Cream of Celery Soup

4 cups of water

1 1/2 cup of washed chopped celery

1/2 cup of spanish onions

1/2 cup of fresh green peppers

1/4 cup of butter or butter substitute

2 cups of milk or soy milk

1 teaspoon of thyme

1 teaspoon of sage

1 teaspoon of paprika

2 cooked chopped potatoes

sea salt and cracked pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Lower the temperature and continue to cook for 1/2 an hour stirring occassionally. Allow to cool and then pour into reusable lunch containers freeze or refrigerate. Place a sticker on the lid of the container and write the date on it. Now think of how much time and money you will save on lunch.

      I'm always trying to eat more celery for its health benefits. This soup sounds delicious, and thank you very much for the tip on freezing soup. That would make soup a lot easier to transport!
