Celery Soup

Fresh celery has a special taste and if you are dieting is useful as it is low in calories but provides lots of fiber. One stalk contains only 10 calories but is rich in vitamins and other nutrients. We had some lovely celery soup for lunch today and if you want to try our recipe - it's as follows:

Ingredients -

Olive oil for frying
One medium sized onion finely chopped
One medium potato peeled and cubed
5-6 washed celery stalks (include the leaves) and cut thinly
Salt and pepper to taste
500ml of vegetable stock and 300ml milk

Method -

Fry the onions till soft and then add the celery and potato. Stir till coated in olive oil.
Add seasoning.
Add the vegetable stock and milk and bring to simmer gently.
Cook gently for 15 minutes
Once slightly cooled - use a hand held blender to liquidize.

Serve with a roll and enjoy.
