Creamy Celery Soup (Western Style) 西芹浓汤

A celery soup can be as easy as complicated as you want it to be. There are many ways of preparing the soup. This is a good recipe for those
does not like to eat celery like my children. They will not say no to this hearty soup and it goes best with garlic breads or croutons.

This soup is similar to the Pumpkin soup that I prepared in my earlier post.


500gm celery
1 medium Russet potato
2 tbsp unsalted butter ( or  olive oil)
1 medium onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
3-4 cup of chicken stock
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste


  1. Cut celery and potatoes in to pieces.
  2. Heat butter in soup pot add in onion and garlic to saute for about 3 mins.
  3. Add in the potatoes and celery to cook for while.
  4. Add in the chicken stock. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the celery and potatoes are soft enough that they can easily be pierced with a chopstick.
  5. Remove from heat and cool the soup a while and puree in a blender , working in batches.
  6. Return pureed soup to pot and bring to a simmer again, adding more stock to adjust the desire thickness.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Garnish with celery leaves.
  9. Serve with toasted croutons or garlic breads.
