Cooking Thursday ~ Creamy Potato and Celery Soup

I know its Autumn..but its still very warm here in Southern California. Even so, I cant resist making soup. I made this one yesterday and its lovely and creamy...but because theres no dairy in it its low in calories. I prefer it as it is..but MrD added some chopped ham to his.

Creamy Potato and Celery Soup

1 bunch celery, diced
3 large potatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon celery salt (or sea salt)

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
  • Saute onion and potato for 3 minutes or until the onion has turned translucent.
  • Pour in chicken stock and bring to the boil.Once boiling, add celery.
  • Bring back the boil and lower the heat.

  • Puree the soup with a hand blender, liquidiser or food processor until smooth


  1. Mr BC had something like this on our vacation and I think I'll try it for him. He really liked it.

    1. Soup is very popular in the UK...especially the pureed kind. Here in the US I have found that the chunkier varieties are the favourite. x

  2. Sounds good! My hubby would like the ham in it too,

    1. I think men like to eat things that they can get their teeth x
