This is a cheap soup to make! I had an extra bunch of celery in the fridge that needed using up- and whenever I need to use something up I usually end up making soup!! We do love soup in this house- and it’s such an easy way of giving the kids a bowlful of vegetables without any complaints!
If you don’t want to use wine just add extra stock- but I think the wine makes this special!
An entire bunch of celery
2 small onions or 1 large one
2 small potatoes or 1 large one
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of parley
1/4 pint white wine
1 1/2 pints of vegetable stock
Use a large knife to slice the celery while it’s still in a bunch (rather than cutting each stick individually!) Dice the onion, slice the leek, finely chop the garlic and peel then cube the potato
Melt the butter in a large pan
Add all the veg and cook on a low- medium heat for 10mins
Add the parsley
Then the white wine
And the stock (I’m using my homemade vegetable stock that I freeze until I use it!)
Bring to the boil then simmer for 15mins
Blend the soup. I use a hand blender but you’ll get a far smoother result if you use a proper blender.
Cut the Stilton into cubes then stir into the soup until it melts
