Cream of Celery Soup
Gluten Free Living – 2021
I was looking through my many Gooseberry Patch cookbooks back in early September and came across this easy Cream of Celery Soup recipe. Instead of flour, it uses potatoes to thicken the soup. It’s lightly flavored with salt, pepper and bay leaves, but you can easily add more flavoring if you desire. I was planning on making it for a lunch get-together with a friend. Unfortunately, that didn’t pan out so my husband and I ended up eating it all ourselves. Yum.
This soup turned out nice and creamy. It was terrific with oyster crackers, but if you need to keep to a gluten free meal, gluten free crackers or bread are wonderful substitutions. Another thing is that this soup recipe didn’t break the bank to make! So many recipes these days use outlandishly expensive ingredients that normal families just can’t afford. This recipe isn’t one of them.
If you’re looking for a delicious soup for cool, winter nights or to serve re-heated for lunches, this one is terrific. It’s also healthy and gluten free. If you need to make the recipe vegan, you can swap out almond milk for the half-and-half in the recipe. Regardless, it’s a down-home comfort food recipe you’re sure to enjoy.
Cream of Celery Soup is smooth, creamy and refreshing.
This soup is great served with oyster crackers, but if you need to keep the recipe gluten free, find a gluten free cracker or bread.
I garnished the soup with some of the cooked celery before serving.
Here’s what I did.

Bring mixture to a boil and cook about 30 minutes.
Remove bay leaves.
Puree soup with an immersion blender until completely smooth.

We loved the smooth, creamy texture of this soup.
This tasty and delicious soup is economical and not so overly seasoned that there’s many competing flavors.
