    Cream of Celery Soup
    • #2
    • 19th Feb 05, 8:47 AM
    My lot hate celery but love this soup. It's from Delia Smith's Cookery Course, part 2.

    350g trimmed celery stalks, save the leaves
    110g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
    2 medium sized leeks (whites only) sliced and washed
    1pt (570ml) chicken stock
    150ml single cream
    150ml milk
    1/4 teaspoon celery seeds (optional I don't always use)
    25g butter
    Salt & black pepper

    In a largish pan melt the butter over a low heat. Chop the celery and add it to the pan with the potatoes and drained leeks. Sitr well, coating the veg with butter, cover with a lid and cook for about 15 mins.

    Then add stock with the celery seeds and some salt. Bring to simmering point, cover once more and cook very gently for 20-25 mins or until the vegetables are really tender. Puree the soup by liquidising or sieving, then return to the pan, stirring in the cream and milk.

    Bring the soup back to the boil, check the seasoning, adding more s&p if necessary. Just before serving, chop the reserved celery leaves and stir them in to the soup to give it extra colour.

    I don't bother re the celery leaves and watch the salt - it can be too salty with the celery seeds and salt.

    Here's another...

    1oz Butter
    1 head of celery cleaned and chopped
    2 onions chopped
    1 rasher bacon chopped
    4oz cottage cheese
    1/2 pint chiken stock
    1/2 pint milk
    salt & pepper
    3oz single cream

    Melt butter in saucepan, and gently fry onion, celery and bacon.

    Stir in cottage cheese, stock, mik and s&p. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 30 mins. Puree in a blender.

    Reheat, and add half the cream.
    pour soup into bowls, and float remaining cream on top.


    I use home-made defrosted chicken stock, from Sunday carcus, also have made it without cottage cheese, and hardly ever put in the cream.

    Lovely with fresh bread from the bread maker!!

    Celeriac makes a really good soup (I only buy it when oops from asda) Chop about half into small chunks, also chop a medium potato, a carrot and an onion. With about a cup of water and two chicken stock cubes, put into a casserole dish and cook on full power in microwave for 10 mins. Whizz this up in a liquidiser or mash it, then add about half a pint of milk or water (you can cream this with coffee whitener if you like) you can add chopped parsleyand/or those delicate inner leaves of celery then heat it up and serve.
    Celeriac is also lovely cooked and mashed up about half and half with potato.

    Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    2 Onions, peeled and chopped
    2 Carrots, peeled and chopped
    3 tb Olive oil
    1 lg Head of celery
    2 Potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed
    -- and diced
    1 1/2 l Water (2 1/2 pints) (or duck
    -- stock, chicken stock)

    Soften the onions and carrots in the olive oil in a heavy, covered pan. Wash and scrape the celery sticks, split the main part of each one vertically and cut it into 2.5 cm (1 in) lengths. Stir the celery into the pan and leave it to steam-cook for 20-30 minutes over a low heat to bring out the flavour. Add the washed and diced potatoes, cover with the water, season with a little salt and a few black peppercorns, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the chopped parsley and liquidize.
    If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.

    Apprentice Tycoon's Celery Soup is to die for. It's in the recipe thread here

    It's the eighth post down.

    I always use her recipe. My OH doesn't really like celery but LOVES this soup. It's dead easy to make and also freezes well.

    Highly recommended

    Celery soup?
    Sorry if this sounds like a daft question! I've got loads of celery lurking in the fridge. Can I make a soup out of this? How much would I need to feed two people? Also got an onion and stock cubes in the house, would I need anything else?

    Cheers for any help.

    I haven't tried this myself but am about to - have bought some celery for this purpose arriving in my Tesco's order today! So was looking this up last night.

    I got the covent garden soup cook book for xmas and theres a lovely celery and cashew one in there, you just use 2 heads of celery around 4oz (i think) of cashews, an onion and some veg stock (I tried making my own but tbh stock cubes are nicer - if saltier and less healthy!) I also added some milk as I felt it needed to be a bit creamier. Method: gently fry onion and chopped celery till onion is transparent but not brown, whizz up cashews till finely ground and add them to the pan with the stock and some seasoning and milk then cook till celery is soft, liquidise in food processor.

    Its lovely!

    Simple celery and rice soup
    Wash and strip stalks of their strings, dice and gently braise in some olive oil and a little water until tender. In another pan fry a chopped onion in butter and saute until golden. Add half the celerey saute then add a handful of arborio rice, stir then add 450ml stock - best stock cubes you can afford. Puree remaining celery and add to pan. Simmer until rice is tender but firm tothe bite. Served with chopped parsley and parmesan.

    Tried this one, and it was delicious! Used one head of celery and just under half a pint of milk. It's made two generous portions or 3 slightly smaller portions. Just had half of it for lunch - yum.

    I make this soup, divide it into pots and freeze them. I take it out the evening before I eat it for lunch. It's yummy!

    Celery soup
    Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe for celery soup? I have a load that I got in veg box, lovely and green with loads of leaves so would like to make a big batch of soup that I can eat during the week (OH cannot stand the stuff-will eat in stews etc but hates the taste)
    All the ones I can find seem to have cream or milk in them. I am looking for a clear, broth style one? Is it simply a case of softening onion, then adding celery and stock/water (am thinking water so really get the celery taste?) may stick some barley or lentils in there too. Please help-I'm HUNGRY thinking about it

    Hi Hotcookie,

    I'm not mad about celery but I do love celery soup. I like cream in in it but if you want a clearer soup just replace the cream or milk in the recipes with stock...I think it would need something more than water.

    This thread has some tried and tested recipes that may help:

    Celery Soup

    I'll add your thread to that one later to keep the recipes together.
