Cream of Celery Soup – A chunky and creamy soup with the sneaked-in goodness of celery prepared in the crockpot. Check out the video recipe and how to cook this soup in the pressure cooker and also other variations below.

Celery is one vegetable that I always find it hard to add to our regular day to day diet. (Recently I tried celery poriyal which turned out to be a huge hit and stay tuned for the recipe. I will be posting it on IMC though. ) So I always include them(a little) in all my soup recipes. A couple of years ago, I got a chance to try cream of celery soup and cream of asparagus soup.

This celery soup gave me the idea of including a whole lot celery in the regular meal. So I started making them regularly. And here is the version that became a hit in our family errr precisely approved by vaandu.

Variations:

Earlier, I used to grind/puree the celery and make it as a very smooth and silky soup. But as kiddo started to acquire the taste, I started making it as a chunky soup and skipped the grinding process. So if you are trying it for the first time, then grinding or pureeing it will help a lot in getting used to the taste.

When I planned to prepare this recipe, I realized I did not use my crockpot this entire year, hence decided to make this in the crockpot. But I have provided the pressure cooker version also. The significant advantage of a crockpot and instant pot are, you don’t need to babysit the recipes. ;-)

Notes:

  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your preference.
  • Instead of mashing the celery mix, you can grind it as well.
  • You can replace cream with low-fat milk or 2% milk.
  • We prefer thyme flavor in this soup. But you can add fresh thyme, oregano or sage or the dried herb mix too.
  • You can include carrot as well, and that adds a tinge of sweetness and color to this soup.

  1. after IP, now ur crockpot recipes super kalakkal, Vidhya ! This chunky soup is tempting for the chilly weather here. For the price that celery is sold here, I think I will have to make suitable substitutes :-)

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
