Flavorful and Filling!
Three veggie combos make a great celery and potato soup! Yes, good old potatoes and celery ... and onion! The basis of this soup is made from dehydrated veggies, but scroll on farther down the page and click on the green banner for our Recipe eBook.
The eBook also has the quantities of fresh ingredients in lieu of dehydrated. So now you know! :-)
My photo shows the soup blended; however, if you like the look of the
potatoes and celery in your soup bowl, just blend only a small portion
of the soup to act as a thickener to the stock. Then add that blended
portion back in the pan, give it a stir then serve.
All it boils down to is how do you like your soup? With 'texture' or smooth?
1. Use the freshly boiled water to re-hydrate the dehydrated items above.
2. When they are sufficiently plump, put the veggies into a heavy saucepan, toss the excess water, and add the vegetable stock to the pan.
3. Add the chopped parsley, tarragon, celery salt, and cumin. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are fully cooked/soft.
4. Use a blender to mix, in small batches ... allow air to escape from the little hole in the lid so that the heat doesn't cause any explosive problems! Just have your hand over that top little hole to catch any runaway splashes.
5. Blend until smooth, about 45 - 60 seconds.
*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.
This is quite a mild and filling soup. It's easy to make and everyone loves it! If you prefer NOT to put it in the blender for a smooth soup, go ahead! If you look at the curried version, you'll see that I didn't blend it (might have been in a hurry that day!) Whatever the reason was, it still tastes great!
