Cream of Celery Soup for Breakfast, Why Not?
Yesterday while cutting up carrot and celery sticks for a potluck supper, I threw the top parts of the celery stems (no leaves) into a pot with some leftover onion, a garlic clove, and some salt, covered it with water, stuck the pot in the fridge and left the house in a rush.
This morning I remembered it with some relief. I added half a potato, brought it to a boil and simmered it until it was all soft. Then I scooped it into the blender with some fresh cilantro and ahhhh, it's the perfect antidote to a partied-out tummy.
That potluck yesterday had everything from sushi to West African chicken and peanut stew to peach pie and lemon cake. I ate it all.
While my ingredients were cooking, I googled cream of celery soup and next time I might follow this recipe: Purée of Celery Soup. But mine tastes PDG.
