Melania's Celery Soup Recipe ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Creamy Celery Soup Recipe without cream

Here's a creamy celery soup recipe that doesn't use cream. Filled with flavor, quick to make, and economical as well. If you're vegetarian or vegan, this one's for you as well.

In fact, my friend, Melania, who gave me this recipe, is neither vegetarian or vegan! 

However, this celery soup recipe works for almost anyone! Just make sure you use a vegan cheese if that's what you want.

What I really like about this recipe is that I often have celery just sitting in the fridge ... and sitting ... and sitting. Waiting to be used. 

Having an easy recipe to use that celery before it gets too limp along with the rest of the ingredients that are always part of my pantry, is perfect. And, when it tastes so good, it's even better.

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!

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 :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Don't have an immersion blender? Carefully pour hot soup into blender and puree.
  • Use vegetable bouillon cubes to make stock if you want this to be a vegan vegetable soup. You can always add other veggies as well.
  • Don't have fresh thyme? Use about ¼ tsp dried thyme instead. 
  • If you're making this vegan, make sure you use a vegan cheese for the garnish or omit it altogether.

Celery Soup?

This is a really old recipe that comes from my dear friend, Melania. I've made some slight modifications.

Love the fact that we can share recipes, change them up a bit, and turn them into something totally new!

Oma says,

I bought a large bunch of thyme the first time I made this soup. I then froze the leftover thyme in a baggie, flattened to make it easier to remove sprigs as I need them.

I find I can just run my fingers over the frozen sprigs and the frozen thyme leaves come right off.
