I had half a celery sitting in the fridge and I wanted to make something with it before I go away today. So last night I wiped up this soup and it was delicious. I made a few changes just so I could use up things in the fridge. I used vegetable stock instead of water and I left out the milk because we didn't have some at home. Thank you Mme Melissa

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice the onion and cook until soft in the butter. Add the diced celery and potato to the pot, add 1 pint water, or, better, just enough water to come up to the level of the vegetables. Bring to the boil, then simmer 10 minutes.
  2. After 10 minutes, add 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 tablespoon parsley to the soup.
  3. Add 1 pint low fat milk, or, better, enough to bring the liquid level to what seems reasonable to call a soup!
  4. Simmer a further 5 minutes, but don't boil it!
  5. Serve. You can microwave any leftovers.
