I altered the recipe a bit by using less celery, using red potatoes and adding fresh spinach. The parsley and bay leaf really add a great flavor. This is a very comforting soup. Thank you for posting this easy and healthy recipe.

Directions See How It's Made
- Chop onion, Green Onion and Celery. Heat Oil and cook veggies for ten minutes. Make sure not to color veggies while cooking. Make a garni of 2 sprigs of parsley and thyme and one bay leaf. Add water or chicken stock, I used one can of chicken stock and the rest water. Add potato and garlic which have been halved. Cook 30-40 minutes adding additional salt and pepper for taste.When soup is done remove garni and blend the whole soup. If there is strings from the veggies you can strain. Reheat. Make garnish from piece of celery for the top of soup when you serve, by making tiny strips not slices.
