So, again... I found two 2-lb packs of celery hearts on SALE!!! So, of course, I took them with me... Each pack has little packs with Ranche dressing on personas sizes... So I took some of them as snacks to the office, and the other ones.... became a creamy delicious soup!!! I used Martha's recipe. You won't believe, but the flavor is AMAZING! The Gab hubs doesn't like celery a lot, he says it has a strong flavor (same as onion) but here... the flavor is not as strong as raw celery, but yet, it's fresh and yum!
- 1/2 stick butter
- 6 cups celery, sliced in small squares
- 1/2 coarsely chopped onion
- 1 potato, cutted in small squares
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cups chicken broth not in the picture
- 4 cups water not in the picture
First, start melting butter in a deep skillet, on medium heat.
Stir ocassionally and let them cook for around 10 minutes. Add chicken broth, water, salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil.
Let it simmer and cook covererd for 20 minutes. Puree with a hand blender or a regular blender (in batches if you need to). Return to pot at low heat.
Add lemon juice, stir, try it for salt and if it's missing some, add a little bit more.
You can serve with some Quick-n-Easy Italian Bread!
