Apple Celery Soup
EVENTS: SUNDAY FUNDAY
THEME: C IS FOR CELERY
RECIPE: APPLE CELERY SOUP
Apple Celery Soup is easy to make, healthy, comforting, delicious home made soup. Ideal way to include celery in your diet. Well at least if you have ‘don’t like celery’ people in your family. While I enjoy tender celery sticks with cream cheese or finely chopped in salads, hubby is not a fan of raw celery.
Therefore, the only way to get some celery included in his diet is through soups, in casseroles and occasionally in a juice if paired with fruits.
Actually, come to think of it, I will not pick up celery like say we pick up potatoes or mushrooms at the grocery. It is bought if I have a specific recipe in mind. I like apple celery soup because of the balance of flavours it offers and the slight creaminess without the cream. With so many different varieties of apples the taste of the soup depends on them. Use green ones only and you get a slightly tangy taste. Use honey crisp and you will get a slight honey taste.

Theme: C Is For Celery
Wendy who blogs at A Day in the Life on the Farm suggested we use celery in a recipe to celebrate the National Month of Celery which is in the month of March. I am looking forward to the recipes that fellow members will share. Gives me a chance to include more celery in our diet.
Some Celery Dishes On My Blog
- I don’t throw away celery leaves, I try and include the tender crisp ones in a juice. Celery Greens and Apple Juice is a refreshingly health drink to enjoy.
- Moong and Celery Leaves Soup is a healthy, creamy and filling soup. Another good way to use up celery leaves.
- Minestrone Soup doesn’t taste the same without celery.
