Hello and welcome back to our kitchen, where simplicity meets deliciousness in every recipe we share. Today, I’m thrilled to guide you through creating a dish that has become a staple in my cooking repertoire for its health benefits, ease of preparation, and, most importantly, its delightful taste. Let’s dive into making a heartwarming Celery and Potato Soup, a recipe that promises to bring comfort and flavor to your table.


  • 300g Celery: Fresh and crisp, ready to be chopped.
  • 320g Potatoes: A versatile and beloved root vegetable, diced for our soup.
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic: For that aromatic kick that elevates any dish.
  • 35g Parsley: Freshly chopped, adding color and vibrancy.
  • 500ml Vegetable Broth: The base of our soup, bringing all our ingredients together.
  • Whole Wheat Bread Crusts: For an added crunch, cut into smaller pieces.
  • 1 tbsp Salted Butter: To fry the bread crusts, adding a touch of richness.
  • Olive Oil, Salt, and Black Pepper: Essential pantry staples for cooking and seasoning.

Let’s Cook:

Start with Celery: In a pan over medium heat, warm a drizzle of olive oil before adding your chopped celery. Let it cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, to bring out its flavor without losing its crispness.

Garlic’s Turn: Add the garlic to the pan, letting it cook for about a minute. This is where the magic happens, and the aromas start to fill your kitchen.

Potato Time: Introduce the diced potatoes to the pan, mixing them well with the celery and garlic. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, ensuring they’re well coated with the flavors in the pan.

Parsley and Seasoning: Next, add the chopped parsley, followed by a generous seasoning of salt and black pepper to taste. The parsley not only adds a fresh note but also a beautiful pop of color.

Simmer and Blend: Pour in the vegetable broth and let the mixture simmer for about 15 minutes. This cooking time allows the potatoes to become tender and the flavors to meld beautifully. After simmering, transfer the contents to a smaller pot or bowl and blend until smooth.

Crunchy Finish: In the same pan, melt some salted butter and fry the whole wheat bread crusts until golden and crispy. These will add a delightful texture contrast to your smooth soup.

Serve and Enjoy: With the soup blended to perfection and the bread crusts crisped up, it’s time to serve. Ladle the soup into bowls, top with the crunchy bread, and enjoy a meal that’s as nourishing as it is comforting.

This Celery and Potato Soup is more than just a meal; it’s a hug in a bowl, promising warmth and well-being with every spoonful. It’s a testament to the beauty of simple ingredients coming together to create something truly special. So, next time you’re in the mood for something easy, healthy, and delicious, remember this soup. Happy cooking!
