Celery Soup

Celery Soup | bsinthekitchen.com #soup #vegan #bsinthekitchenSorry for being a bit absent on the blog lately and an even bigger thanks to Bob for carrying things along and posting some really delicious recipes. Last night I was pretty hungry and after avoiding groceries for the past three weeks, the only thing I really had in my fridge was celery… yup you heard me… boring ol’ celery. So I chopped a bunch up and just started creating and this is what I came up with. It was a great little soup that would best be served as a side soup or an appetizer to a great sandwich (perhaps one of Bob’s fabulous grilled cheeses). Let’s continue to the recipe.

Hope everyone enjoys this simple and easy soup. Don’t hesitate to play around with the flavours a bit and add in any spices that your palette is craving. This soup is also pretty filling thanks to the lentils and quinoa for the added protein punch.
