Cream of Celery Soup Recipe

Do you have extra celery left over after snacks or cooking? It's quick and easy to make cream of celery soup out of it, which is rich and warm!

4 stalks celery
1 cup water
1 14oz can chicken broth
dash salt
dash white pepper
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Start the water and chicken broth boiling in a saucepan. Cut the celery into 1" pieces and put them into the water. Cook around 15 minutes or until tender.

Put half the mixture into a blender and cover, but leave the hole out of the center of the top since the mixture is hot. If you're nervous about your blender spraying, use a tupperware top just gently resting over the hole to minimize splatters. Blend at very low speed until relatively smooth. There will still be some chunks. Remove first half into a bowl and blend the second half of the broth.

Put all blended material back into a saucepan and add in salt, white pepper, half-and-half and nutmeg. Heat until warm. Serve.
