"Homemade soup that doesn't take all day to cook! With the addition of Brie cheese, this soup is a winner!"

"I'm sorry, but this was very bland. I was expecting it to be rich with the brie, but it was lacking in flavor. I think it's a really good base, but next time I would add garlic and use chicken broth for the entire liquid equivalent instead of water."
"Made as directed only added some garlic...definately a keeper! So good and comforting on a cold rainy day. Thank you! Made for TOMT-Soup Fest tag game."
"Quick and tasty! I used half milk/half heavy cream, and didn't blend the soup - I like 'em chunky ;) I found it a little peppery for my taste, but hubby still added pepper at the table. I liked it with the brie, but think next time I might try it with cream cheese as others have suggested. Good soup for a cold winter day!"
"Very good recipe. My only substitutions were a Hollandaise Chevre for the Brie (which I grated before adding), and extra regular onion for the green onion. I also cooled it few minutes before adding to the blender and left about one cup not blended for texture. My hubby loved it. I would like to tweak it a little toward my own taste but I think that was because my chicken broth came out a little too tart since I had no carrots the day I made it :(. Thank you for a solid, yummy recipe!"
"I made this soup last night and it was delicious. I didn't have the brie so I subsituted cream cheese. I did have cheddar but that wtih celery seemed strange to me. I doubled the recipe and added thyme instead of the marj.. and like another reviewer did add soem garlic. As with the brie the cream cheese didn't melt quite right and was "clumpy" so I just blended it again and it came out nice and smooth. FYI thought be careful when doing so I had an "eruption" :) from my blender and was told by a family member it was because the liquid was too high and too hot? Anyway thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe it was a great way to use up some celery I didn't want to go to wate. It had a wonderful taste of celery and was creamy mmm!!!"
"This soup is terrific! I have a Celery Soup recipe that I love, but decided to try this as I felt like something with a bit of cheese in it. I only had a sweet potato, so used that and otherwise stuck to the recipe as noted - and it was creamy and wonderful! I did have a hard time getting the brie to melt (might have been because it was a light kind) so I just blended it with my immersion blender. I think my old favorite has been replaced! :-)"
"The best Cream of Celery Soup I have ever had! And almost as easy as opening a can."
"This was very good. My neighbor was over and turned up his nose until he tried it. Definetly not out of a can! Thanks for sharing!"
"It's nice to find a gluten-free cream soup! I added some fresh parsley before I pureed it and it added some brightness."
"A new family favorite... even for my 9 year old son! You would never know it has celery because it's smooth and the brie cheese and potatoe gives it a smooth warm feeling. The white pepper is perfect, the heat builds as you eat it. Un-expectedly wonderful!!!"
"delicious creamy soup, I had some brie in my freezer leftover from the holidays and this just fit the bill, I also added in 2 good tablespoons fresh minced garlic and 2 teaspoons red chili flakes for some heat, I used all broth, my DH ate the whole thing himself then commented on how great this was, thank you for sharing Sharon!"
"Definatly a keeper!! Gave a bowl to my friend and she made it the next day cause it was so tasty! I used cheddar instead of brie, and it worked out wonderfully. Thanks for the recipe Sharon!"
"This is a wonderful cream of celery soup! It has the nicest "velvety" texture. For the cheese, I used half brie and half smoked gouda...fabulous! Thanx for posting this; it's a keeper!"
"I agree with Picholine- followed the directions exactly and while this is a lovely "winter warmer" soup, the brie went in and disappeared. Next time I'll try using goat brie, it has more of a kick (no pun intended). ;-) "
"We really enjoyed this soup.I will make it again in the the cold blizzard winter days."
"Delicious soup! I used organic celery, omitted the marjoram, and replaced white pepper with black pepper (since I didn't have those spices). We enjoyed the smooth, creamy texture and delicate flavor. But the brie didn't quite give the extra savory taste we were hoping for--it kind of disappeared except for an occasional clump. My DH thought sharp cheddar might have been better. As a stand-alone (no cheese) basic recipe for a "cream of mixed vegetable" type soup, this hits the spot. "
