      wow this is easy and really tasty. ive already made it three times for guests...i never use celery because i always forget to buy it...and i usually double or triple the recipe...i dont top it with yogurt. i find that it sometimes turns into stew so i have to add more water... the best tip i have is squeezing a bit of lemon and good extra virgin olive oil into the bowl for a more complex treat. the olive oil is optional, but the lemon juice really takes it to the next level.

      A very nice soup. A little bland for my taste. I loved that there was no meat or potatoes, but I just didn't find enough flavor. After making the recipe in half (your version) and mine. I made the following changes. I added a bit more garlic, more celery, and a can of diced tomatoes. I also used all fresh herbs (more of the fresh of course) which I think gave it a brighter flavor. I used all vegetable stock (no water, that just "watered" it down for me), more pepper, but salt I do to taste. I think the fresh herbs and the tomatoes did it for me. That was all it needed. I did use the topping and mix a bit of lemon juice and zest in with the parsley and sour cream. It was a nice topping to the soup. Served with with a nice baguette that I grilled with some melted havarti. A nice complement to the soup.

      I made this in my slow-cooker. It was SUPERB!!! So good infact I made two extra lots (one after the other) and froze them. It is as good defrosted as it is fresh. My children love it and it costs almost nothing to make. THANK YOU
