Well it’s here folks, 2016 and a Very Happy New Year to you all! 😀
If you’re a regular blog follower you’ll recall that my other half and I are having a “vegan January”.
So recipes will be themed towards that. However, rest assured, we are only doing this for January, it’s just a change for the month.
There’s no change to neilshealthymeals overall theme of quick healthy meals for all!
The recipes this month can of course be enjoyed by anyone, vegan or non-vegan.
We just thought it would be nice to have a change after all our Christmas and New Year indulgences!
So, now that I’ve got that “disclaimer” out of the way, let’s get on to talk about this fantastic cream of celery soup shall we? 😉
It’s a pretty simple healthy cream of celery soup recipe.
One I’ve not changed since I started doing it years ago.
Its particularly healthy because it’s a creamy celery soup recipe with no cream!
That’s right. It’s all just vegetables. And because it’s just vegetables it’s a low fat celery soup recipe!
The addition of an apple adds that extra bit of “sweetness” to the overall flavour. Without adding any kind of artificial sweetener either.
But folks what matters is what you think?
Why This Is A Healthy Cream Of Celery Soup
It’s amazing just how healthy sticks of celery are.
In this low fat creamy celery soup they’re packed with essential vitamins and minerals.
Not only are vitamin K, vitamin C and potassium contained within celery, but also folic acid,
Folic acid helps to maintain and form healthy blood cells, keeps the heart healthy and has been used to help treat depression too.
So, if you’re feeling a bit blue after the festive period and perhaps a little guilty of all the overindulgence too, then have a bowl of this heartening cream of celery soup.
And put it all behind you and start now on your super healthy New Year!

Cream of Celery Soup
- Low fat cooking spray
- 2 medium onions peeled and chopped
- 350 g chopped celery sticks
- 1 large potato peeled and diced
- ½ tsp dried thyme
- 1 green apple peeled, cored and chopped
- 1.25 L vegetable stock
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Freshly chopped flat leaf parsley
- Spray the bottom of a large saucepan about 7 to 8 times. Turn the heat on high underneath, then when the oil starts to bubble, turn the heat lower.
- Add the onion and the celery and sauté, stirring constantly for about 7 to 8 minutes until soft, but not burnt, or you will taint the taste of the soup.
- Add the dried thyme and stir in, then add the potato and apple and sauté, again stirring for a further 2 minutes.
- Add the stock, bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes until the vegetables are soft then remove from the heat.
- Either using a stick blender or an upright blender, blitz the soup to a pulp and return it to the saucepan.
- Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
- Serve garnished with the freshly chopped parsley.
