Welcome to my cookbook Cookerypoint - Ila's Kitchen. It is rainy here.. Shall we do some soup??? Yup, Celery soup is common in British restaurants. It is also called as diet soup. Celery soup is a part of british cuisine as like Leek and Potato soup. So, lets do celery soup huh ?? The main ingredient is celery stick as u know well. Its heaven to have hot soup in rainy weather na :)


Celery Stick - 2 cups (finely chopped)
Honey - 1 tbspn
Extra Virgin Olive oil - 1/4 cup
Lemon Juice - 1/2 lemon
Vegetable Stock - 3 cups
Spring Onion - 2 sprig(chopped finely)
Salt as required
Pepper as required

Preparation of Vegetable stock :

I prepared stock using Bouillon powder. It is avaiable in stores with both vegetable and non veg flavour. I used Vegetable flavour. Take one tablespoon powder and dilute in three cups of water with out lumps.
Our vegetable stock is ready .


Heat Oilve oil(2 tbspn) in a heavy bottom pan.
Saute celery stick and spring onion till it become transulent.
Cool it and put it in blender.
Add lemonjuice,honey,Olive oil,vegetable stock and salt with celery mixture.
Blend it well and keep it in low flame for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle some spring onions on the top of soup.
Yummy soup is ready and serve hot.

Serving Suggestion :

The Celery soup can be served with fresh cream on top. I avoided that due to diet reason. It can be served for dinner as starters with salt and pepper.

I am sending this soup to  A.W.E.D.BRITISH  Event hosted by Reva's Kaarasaaram which is originated by Dk's Chef In You.

I am also sending this soup recipe to Divya's Show Me Your Soup Event.
