Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir celery and onion in hot oil until celery is almost completely tender, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, garlic salt, butter flavoring, parsley, celery seed, and black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan with a lid, and simmer until celery is completely soft, 5 to 10 minutes more. Remove from heat.

  • Pour milk and potato flakes into a jar, cover the jar with a lid, and shake until flakes and milk are completely combined.

  • Pour celery mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Return pureed celery soup to saucepan.

  • Heat soup in the saucepan over low heat; stir milk-potato flake mixture into soup until completely incorporated and hot, 3 to 5 minutes.

Great soup! I used veggie broth and a stick blender.. We haven't added milk yet because it is so perfect as is! Our son is a vegan and I'm taking a big bowl in to work tomorrow for him! We may add in milk or soy milk tomorrow.I did use extra carrot's as another reader did. It took a while for the celery to cook down and i used olive oil for that,plenty of onion in the veggie broth so i didn't need to use more than a half of a small onion...!! will make this again many times!! a great way to get fresh celery and carrots on the dinner menu!!!

I think I'm a bit biased because celery isn't my favourite. My bf liked it though. I'm not sure if he was just being nice or if he actually liked it. I don't think I'll make it again. It was a bit bitter. Read More

I made it once. There are just of us and we finished it in two days. I used 1% milk (all I use) skipped the potatoes altogether. Again, I used red onions because that was all I had. I put all the veggies through a stick chopper. They were so nicely done, I didn't even bother with pureeing. I am getting ready to do another batch this evening. This recipe is a definite keeper for family, guests and take along for potlucks. It deserves 5 stars but some people may think I am exaggerating. Awesome soup. Read More

I used vegetable broth rather than chicken broth and plain rice milk and boiled potatoes rather than milk and potato flakes. Topped with fresh parsley and sauteed tofu cubes. Fantastic thank you for this recipe. Read More

I had an extra bunch of celery and didn't want to waste it. The only two things different that I did was not add celery seed (I'm not a fan), and I did add some minced carrot into it. Otherwise, very tasty. I'd make this again. Read More

Nice soup.. light but tasty. I had to make a last minute substitution I thought the box in the cupboard was potato flakes.. it was pancake mix so I diced up a potato and threw it in instead of the flakes Read More

Didnt have a full bunch of celery so reduced the liquids and seasoning. Used my immersion blender right in the soup pot. Baked a potato and mashed it w the milk and added it to the blended soup. Oh used 1 Tbsp butter instead of butter flavoring. The pepper gave it a nice kick! Husband said tastes like more!?? Read More
