Celery Soup

Do you like celery?

When I was a kid, celery was a huge controversial food that many people complained about its unique flavor. Some says celery tastes like a soap or insects(I don’t know whether they really ate insects in their life,) so as soon as you say you like them, the first question would be why? 

After I arrived in the US, I learned buffalo wings with a side of celery sticks and ranch dressing, and as you can guess, the combination grabbed my heart. It’s one of my favorites!

The celery flavor can’t be substituted with other vegetables, so to enjoy the full flavor, let’s make a soup and keep warm! 

Ready to have a bowl of comforting soup? Let’s cook! 🙂

When you decorate the soup with carrots, gently place them to float. Otherwise they sank immediately!
