Quick & Easy Celery Soup Recipe

Quick & Easy Celery Soup Recipe

In a bid to try to be more savvy and reduce our food bill, and our food waste, I have been trying to use up the odd bits of veg that we always seem to have left over.

Last week I made a dish that required one celery stalk. As you will know you need to buy a whole bunch of celery and I really didn’t fancy throwing the rest of it away, and the other meals I had planned that week didn’t call for celery.

I thought I would have a go at celery soup. I had a look at a few different recipes, then sort of made up my own. The soup was delicious so I though I’d share the recipe I used here.


  • 1 bunch celery – diced
  • 1 large potato – diced
  • 1 onion – diced
  • 1.5 litres vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and potato for around 3 minutes – until the onion has turned translucent.
  2. Add the veg stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Once boiling, add in the celery and bring back to the boil then lower the heat.
  4. Add in some freshly ground black pepper
  5. Let the soup simmer for 30 minutes.
  6. Puree the soup – I use a hand blender for this


I then served this with bread. The first time I added some grated cheese but to be honest it didn’t add much to it. The second time I added some more black pepper which was much nicer.

This is a really quick and easy soup to make and is a great way to use up celery too.
