Celery Butter Soup

Celery Butter Soup

Harry TongJan 20, '20

Celery and butter seem like an odd combination to the uninformed - but one spoonful of this delectable soup and you'd be crazy not to see the light! For too long has celery sat on the sidelines - a dipping stick, a side, an undertone. It's time to give celery what it deserves.


  • 75 g Butter
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 250g Chopped celery
  • 100 g Diced onion
  • 100 g Diced potato
  • 1L Light chicken/turkey/ham stock
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Heavy or double cream


  1. Stew the celery and onion gently in the butter and oil in a covered pan for 10 minutes.  Add the potato and stir to coat well with butter and oil.   Don’ let the vegetables brown.  Add the stock.  
  2. Bring the soup to the boil and then reduce to a gentle simmer for 30 minutes or until the celery is very tender.  
  3. Blend or pass the soup through a mouli. Add salt and pepper to tastes.  Ladle the soup into warm bowls,  spoon over a little double cream, swirl and eat.
