Celery soup is not something I ever thought I would want to make…or eat…or smell. I’m not a huge fan of celery, but with this recipe, I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s so super simple, relatively inexpensive, and paired with everyone’s favorite cured meat: bacon. Seriously, make this soup!
I love the addition of 1-2 stalks of celery in soups and sauces, but who can possible use an entire bunch? I usually end up mincing it and freezing it in 1/2-cup portions for future use, or just tossing it into chicken stock. But an actual soup with celery as the base would have never crossed my mind. This soup comes from the talented Andrea at Forest and Fauna. Her cream of celery soup is Paleo & Vegan, and uses a pressure cooker to make a simple cream of celery soup, without the bacon. I wanted to take things up a notch and soften the celery flavor, so my stovetop version is paired with fresh dill and bacon, and I love it!
