Celery soup is a delicious vegetable soup. There are several variations of celery soup ranging from cream-based to a more rustic-style soup. For a broth-based soup with chunky vegetables, try 300 Sensational Soups by Carla Snyder and Meredith Deeds. Your local library also has a good collection of cookbooks. This recipe is for a cream-based celery soup. It's easy and guaranteed to entice even non-celery eaters. In general, making soup is a very forgiving process; it's difficult to make bad soup.
