Celery & Potato Soup

Re-growing CeleryI’m growing quite a bit of celery this year, it is easy to grow and it lasts for a long time. Mine grew right through the winter and is re-growing again this season. It has a lot more taste in early spring in the second season and takes very little work to grow. I’ve also started experimenting with re-growing it in the kitchen on the window sill in a small shallow dish. This seems to work really well and the tiny shoots are delicious in salad and full of health benefits.

Celery is really high in antioxidants, fibre, Vitamin K and also contains Vitamins A, B2, B6 & C. This soup is fat free and super quick to make. It’s a real tonic if you are feeling a little off colour or are convalescing.

Celery & Potato Soup
One of my favourite soups to make if I am lacking in energy or feel the need to clean my system a bit. Fast, easy, healthy, low cost and tasty. BOOM.
