Celery and Red Onion Soup

Today, New Year’s Day, I’m going to fight that fatigue with a energy-packed superfood: celery. A late night means I always start to drop off around tea time, so here we go…

You’ll need

6 stalks of celery
One big red onion
Half a pint of stock
Black Pepper.
A dash of olive oil.

That’s it.

Chop and wash and then stick in a frying pan.
Put a lid on and simmer for 40 mins.
Before you blitz remove a handful of the reduced celery. Keep it to add back into the blitzed soup, just for some crunch.
Blitz the rest and reheat in a pan, adding water and the celery pieces until it’s just the right consistency.

The verdict: extremely yummy and surprisingly creamy in texture. A real winter warmer after a walk with the dog.
I’d give it 8/10

What about you?

The lowdown on Celery – it seems that the B1 vitamin in celery can help us breakdown carbohydrates improve digestion and as a result, increase our energy levels. This crunchy vegetable also contains lutolin and diosmin, which, it is thought, could help fight Alzheimer’s and other similar diseases.

  1. Oh wow! This looks awesome! What a nice combination of ingredients. When you have the time, do drop by my space. I just made some snacky oat bars and would love to know what you think. Happy holidays!

  2. I used to use cream and lots of butter. Not needed.
