Print this Recipe    GARLICKY CREAM OF CELERY SOUP

serves 6

12 large celery stalks, divided
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 large onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons unbleached white flour or regular all purpose
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 teaspoons salt-free herb and spice seasoning mix (I use 1/8 teaspoons of
whatever herbs and spices I have available or Chinese Five Spices with
Rosemary and thyme.)
1/4 cup mixed chopped fresh parsley and dill
1/4 cup celery leaves
1 to 1 1/2 cups low-fat milk or soy milk, as needed
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
chopped fresh dill or parsley for garnish

Trim 10 stalks of celery and cut them into 1/2 inch dice. Trim the
remaining 2 stalks, cut them into 1/4" dice and set aside. Heat 1
tablespoon of the oil in a soup pot. Add the onions and garlic and saute
over medium heat until the onions are golden. Sprinkle in the flour and
stir it in until it disappears. Add the 10 stalks of celery, the potatoes
and just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer, then add the seasoning
mix, fresh herbs and celery leaves. Simmer gently until the vegetables are
tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat.

With a slotted spoon, transfer the solid ingredients to a food processor
or blender and puree, in batches, until very smooth. Stir back into the
soup pot. Return to a very low heat and add enough milk or soy milk to
achieve a slightly thick consistency. Heat the remaining oil in a small
skillet. Add the reserved celery and saute over moderate heat until it is
touched with golden spots. Add to the soup, then season to taste with salt
and pepper. Serve at once ot allow the soup to stand for an hour or so,
then heat through as needed. Garnish each serving with chopped dill or
parsley.
