Simple Celery Soup

Simmer up a hearty batch of celery soup for a delicious midday meal. Before starting your dish, consider boiling 1/4 chicken skin in an additional 1/4 cup of chicken broth on low heat for 12 to 15 minutes to intensify the flavors of your broth stock and to boost your fat content if you’re on a high-fat diet like the keto diet.

Simple Celery Soup

  • Servings: 4
  • Ready In: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 stalks celery, fresh, chopped
  • 2 cups cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 onion, medium chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1 dash sea salt (optional)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons dill, chopped
  • Cilantro leaves, fresh, for garnish

Health Benefits

  • Celery: full of enzymes and antioxidants, celery has a stellar reputation for helping to detox the body and reduce blood pressure.

  • Cauliflower: if you’ve given up grains and legumes, this cruciferous veggie is a great alternative and helps load you up with healthful fiber.

  • Onion: possible health benefits include lowering your risk for cancer, heart disease, and obesity when eaten as part of a healthy diet.

  • Garlic: don’t worry about your breath. Garlic delivers way too many nutrients, like manganese, vitamins C and B6, and selenium, to miss out!

  • Butter: put away the margarine because butter will be better for lowering heart attack risk. Just consume in moderation.

  • Chicken broth: helps support digestion and gut health. Opt for a no- or low-sodium variety for the healthiest version.

  • Heavy cream: delivers omega-3s and CLAs. If you can source it from organic, grass-fed cows, even better!

  • Dill: is great for digestion and is thought to help lower cholesterol.

  • Cilantro:  this detoxifying herb is high in fiber and vitamins A, C, E, and K.
