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
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.
