Celery Soup Recipe

I don’t know about you guys, but being stuck at home has me cooking eating – A LOT! Cooking gives me a sense of satisfaction, but eating all of the time? Eh, not so much.

There’s a fairly simple solution to this need to feed, replace high-calorie and high-fat meals with nutrient-dense and low-calorie veggies. Enter the world of vegetable-based soups!

Celery is a hot-to-trot veggie these days. Supposedly, an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and electrolyte-laden veggie, celery juice was being cranked out and sucked down at every juice bar across America. Experts warn drinking too much can pose a health risk because celery is loaded with sodium (one of those electrolytes). While science is still trying to determine if there are any long-term benefits to drinking the pulpy green juice, one fact is clear – it is low calorie and loaded with fiber – The perfect base for my soup!

Keep in mind, cooking vegetables will break down and destroy some of the health benefits. But, for my purpose, I just wanted to make a healthy and satisfying soup that I could eat in lieu of blocks of cheese and bags of chips.
This celery soup hit the spot! It didn’t hurt that I had one nice slice of slightly cheese garlic toast to dip into it! Another added accouterment that really made this soup a meal – a nice heaping dollop of protein-packed plain Greek yogurt. During these rainy spring days, this celery soup recipe certainly hit the spot!
