6 Ingredient Healthy Celery Soup
Creamy Healthy Celery Soup is a great vegetarian soup perfect for using up abundant amounts of celery. With an ingredient listing loaded with beautiful simple ingredients you will no doubt have on hand, it is perfect as a quick midweek dinner. We make it smooth so it is just perfect for drinking from a mug. It is quite delicious eating, supremely satisfying, and while 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!
