Celery soup with crutons outside on a patio.

You know that feeling when you open the fridge and you realise you have two of something and that that something really needs using up? I had two large heads of celery waving at me, taking up a lot of space and crying out to be lunch – this one fancied being an early Spring soup and who am I to say no to a vegetable which knows its mind?

What To Make With Celery

Celery is often the forgotten bystander of the vegetable world. It usually finds its place in a well flavoured vegetable stock, as a stick to scoop up dips and spreads or as a crunchy extra in a limp summer salad.

But celery is so much more than an extra in someone else’s show! This celery soup recipe puts the spotlight firmly on this delicious vegetable and really lets it shine – it’s a celery celebration!
