I have not made this, but found it in an older cookbook as I was browsing through my books.

To turn it into soup: Add 1/2 c. water to celery bath. Add 2 cans chicken broth, lots more salt and pepper, several dashes of tabasco, 6 chopped green onions, and a teaspoon of onion powder after you've finished the original recipe. Delicious!

this was the consistency of gravy... it should have been served over rice or biscuits. if i make it again it will be with vegetable broth instead of milk - if i'm going to serve it as a soup that is... otherwise, it's a very good gravy - i topped it with chopped peanuts and fried onions.

Very good! I used soy milk and it ended up very thick and creamy. The celery boiled about 15 minutes and there wasn't really much water left at all. I also used natural style peanut butter and added a dash of Tabasco sauce. Thanks! I like trying different things like this. It was easy and filling and I'm sure I'll be making this again.
