Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Chopped Onion
  • 3 cups Chopped Celery including the greens
  • 1 Potato peeled and cubed
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme
  • 1.5 tsp Pepper freshly ground, I used approximately 1.5 tsp. Adjust according to your preference.
  • 2 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp Water
  • 1/4 cup Cream
  • Butter - as required to serve

Instructions

Crockpot Method:

  • Add the chopped onion, celery, potato to the crockpot.
  • Add the vegetable broth, salt, thyme, and pepper. Mix it and set the crockpot on low heat mode and cook for 4 hours.
  • After 4 hours, open the lid carefully and using a potato masher, mash all the celery mix. You can grind them as well.
  • Mix the all-purpose flour and water and add this to the crockpot soup mix.
  • Stir in the cream as well.
  • Cook this on high mode for 30 minutes.
  • And that's it. Cream of Celery soup is ready.
  • Top it up with butter and serve hot.

Pressure Cooker Method:

  • Add the chopped onion, celery, potato to the pressure pan or cooker.
  • Add the vegetable broth, salt, thyme, and pepper.
  • Mix and let it cook for up to 3 whistles and then reduce the heat to low and let it cook for 20 more minutes. Ignore the whistle count during this step.
  • Let the pressure release and using a potato masher, mash all the celery mix. You can grind the celery mix as well.
  • Transfer this to the big pot/pan and let it simmer over low heat.
  • Mix the all-purpose flour and water and add this to the crockpot soup mix.
  • Stir in the cream as well.
  • Let the soup mix simmer for at least 30 minutes.
  • And that's it. Cream of Celery soup is ready.
  • Top it up with butter and serve hot.

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.
