If you love celery as much as I do, you are going to love this simple soup. The recipe was born after my holiday ravioli making. You see, I only use the celery leaves in my ravioli recipe. I’m left with an overabundance of celery…its soup season and I’m on a health kick…sooooo, here ya go. P.S. My husband loves it too.



Simple Celery Soup


  • 4 bunches celery, sliced into ¼ inch slices (you should have 10 cups sliced)
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • ½ yellow onion
  • 2 TBSP. Chimichurri Sauce (recipe follows)
  • light sour cream for garnish
  1.  Place sliced celery, chicken stock and onion into a large soup pot.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes.  Remove from heat to cool.
  2. While soup is cooling, make Chimichurri Sauce.  Note:  Use the remaining Chimichurri on grilled meats.
  3. Remove onion from the soup pot and discard.  Puree soup in blender in batches.  Note: I like to leave a little texture to my soup while doing this.
  4. Return pureed soup to soup pot.  Stir in 2 tablespoons of your Chimichurri Sauce.  Heat soup and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top.

Makes 7 ½ cups
