6 Ingredient Healthy Celery Soup
This Healthy Celery Soup is quite supremely satisfying.
Whilst it is a creamy soup, we only pop a little bit of cream in there so it doesn’t deliver too much in the way of calories or fat in each serving.
Satisfying, indeed! We make it smooth so it is just perfect for drinking from a mug, which the kids seem to love.
Only 6 Ingredients?
Yep, you read that right. All you need for some delicious homemade celery soup is:
- red onion
- vegetable stock
- whole wheat flour
- heavy cream
Cook it, blend it, add in some cream and you are good to go.
What do we need to go along with some hot, fresh, homemade soup? Homemade bread of course! Soup is just not the same if you don’t have some soft and fluffy bread for dipping. Check out these 40 minute Honey Wheat Dinner Rolls.
