Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup onion, cut into wedges and broken apart
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 cups homemade beef stock (really it is not worth making this recipe unless you have your own stock to use)
  • 2 cups potatoes, cubed
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced in chunks
  • 1 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cream (optional)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated (optional)


  1. in a large pot, brown the onions and celery in the oil.
  2. add all the other ingredients (except cream and cheese).
  3. bring to a boil.
  4. reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are done.
  5. if you prefer a creamy soup to a clear one, add the cream now and let it cook in for 5 minutes.
  6. serve with a little parmesan cheese on top.

I used vegetable stock that I had on hand instead of beef, added some leftover parsnips and 1 tsp of Mrs Dash Hot. Thankyou for an easy enjoyable recipe
