🔪 Step by step instructions
Just a few steps to make this vegan celery soup, and all are easy to do:
- Heat the olive in a large saucepan and add the celery, potatoes, zucchini and garlic (if using), salt and herbs. Add a splash of water to stop the potatoes from sticking. Cook, stirring frequently and adding more water if necessary.
- Pour the broth into the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Blend the soup with an immersion blender. Add the milk, give it a good stir or blend again. Return to the heat to warm up if needed. Add more salt to taste, and the sesame seeds and mint to garnish, if using.
💭 Recipe tips and notes
- Adjust quantities slightly if you want a thicker (or thinner) soup. A little more potato will thicken the soup if you prefer something heartier.
- An immersion blender makes it easy to blend the soup, but you can also transfer in batches to a food processor to blend.
- The recipe is gluten free, but check the ingredients for the vegetable broth if using a store-bought brand.
