Outstanding! My 6-year-old granddaughter even said I should enter it in a contest. Imagine that! Finally, a celery soup with no dairy or eggs. I will be making it often. I'd also like to try canning it so it'll always be on hand. The wonderful "bouquet" lasts for a while. I also tried it with a pinch of curry (about 1 tsp) to the recipe. Great for a variation.
