Celery Soup

Celery soup3

I had a bunch of celery that needed to be used up quickly and a soup seemed to be a good way to do just that. I adapted a recipe I saw on Everyday Food. I think the soup turned out very well and I just wanted to document it here.

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp olive oil
4-5 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
3 cups chopped celery

½ onion, sliced
1 potato, peeled and cubed
½ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp powdered cloves
1 ½ cups milk
Salt
Pepper
Water


Method:
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, celery, and potato cubes; stir and cook for a minute each after every addition.


Add red pepper flakes and powdered cloves. Mix well. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften.

Add 2-3 cups water to saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until vegetables are very tender. Puree soup until smooth. (I used my immersion blender.) Add milk. Continue to cook till thick and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
