Oma's creamy Cream of Celery Soup recipe makes a wonderful light supper. Serve a salad on the side, some crispy crackers, and fruit to finish, and you'll have a happy and satisfied family! It's a variation of a normal celery soup, but with additions that turn this into a soup that satisfies the German taste buds. A difference is that Germans use celery root for their soup. This one uses the stalks and leaves, since celery root is not always available here.
So what's the main difference between this and a non-German one? Cream! Nutmeg! Leeks! Everything a good German cream soup should have.
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
I love playing around with recipes. So easy to do with soups, since they don't really need accurate measurements. Try some of this and some of that ... create new recipes from old ones. Change old ones with a new addition.
