Needed salt and pepper, but otherwise a good recipe. I used rice milk in place of regular milk.
Quick & easy, but very watery for a 'cream' soup, and kind of bland. If I make it again, I'd either add some flour to the saute, or no water and less chicken broth. I added salt, which it needed desperately. Needs an herb peck-me-up, too -- perhaps some thyme?
Lovely winter supper dish! I forgot to add the shredded cheese garnish, but we didn't miss it. I tossed in a leftover grilled half piece of New York style bratwurst ( maybe 2 oz, diced into tiny bits) and it added a nice depth to the flavor. Used red potatoes with skins left on, diced into 1/2" cubes and added a tsp of no sodium chicken bullion granules to enhance the chicken broth flavor. Everyone had seconds and now I wish I had doubled the recipe so I'd have leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.
Once this is seasoned, it's not half bad. Skip that stuff, however, and this is rather unappealing. I used shallots in place of onion & garlic and added liberal amounts of sea salt and black pepper at the end, as well as 2 strips of crumbled bacon. With those changes, it was a tasty, low-fat potato-esque soup with a hint of celery flavor. Thanks.
This is an excellent recipe. Tasty and easy. I used to avoid buying a whole celery bunch because we couldn't use it up; this solves that problem. And with no cream, and little milk, it is both healthy and "forgiving" to make.
Awesome. I stretched this a bit further with 6 servings. I used 12oz of skim milk and 4 cups of chicken broth, and no water. 4 cups of celery (1lbs!) and only 10oz of potatoes to lower the carbs a bit. I added about 1tsp salt too. I used my immersion blender right in the pot to make pureeing easier. This was so wonderful, DH enjoyed with cheese and I liked mine plain. I think I would like this with a bit of sweetness to it as well, and might stir in a bit of sugar with my next bowl. Thanks, awesome!
Very good! My son loved this soup. Easy to make and inexpensive too. Great light dinner when served with naan and fresh salad. Thanks!
Yummo. The dijon mustard and the cheese on top makes it. I pureed all of it.
Had four bunches of celery in the fridge so decided I needed to make soup to get rid of it. Wow, made this with some customizations and it was wonderful! Yes, the dijon mustard certainly does add a nice flavour. I made a double batch and used soy milk instead of skim milk (for non-dairy), leeks instead of onions, and oragnic chicken broth. It was fab, the whole family enjoyed it. I'll be making this one again and again. Thanks for the great recipe., qiltkitty!
I liked this very much. It was tasty and creamy (from partially pureeing), yet low-fat! The Dijon makes makes it tastier than other celery soups. Thanx for posting this; it's a keeper!
