Cream of celery soup recipe – from a long time I have been wanting to make cream of celery soup and finally I made the soup. I can think and prepare soup only in winters. I guess this is the last soup recipe I will be posting as the summer season in India is just around the corner.

Having soups in the Indian summers is an absolute no no, unless it is a cold soup. So I thought I better post this soup recipe before it gets too late. Otherwise I will have to wait for a year again to post it in the next winters. At home I always cook seasonal recipes and that reflects on the blog too.

This celery soup is a one pot soup recipe. I have not used milk and all purpose flour to thicken the soup. Instead added potatoes to thicken the soup. I have added low fat dairy cream in the recipe. But feel free to skip it or reduce the proportion if you want a lighter version of the soup.

In India, Celery is available in most metro cities in super markets which sell gourmet stuff and herbs. I do have celery shrubs at home, but for the soup I had purchased the celery from the market. I had got these long stalks which I chopped fine and then added to the soup.
