The Best Soup Ever!
This morning I was drinking my celery juice and was getting ready to wash my juicer and I thought “Hey, I should make some of my Celery Juice Pulp & Potato Soup”! And it is the perfect day for it, not that there is never a perfect day for this delicious soup. But today is rainy here so it makes it extra perfect. 🙂
I have made this soup before and even my 14 year old daughter loves this one so this is a big, big, bonus. I am sure you will too.
After I made the soup I was still working on drinking my celery juice and knew that I should finish that and wait for a bit before I have anything else to eat or drink, but I couldn’t! This soup is that good. I had to try some. And let me tell you my taste buds loved it, but so did my tummy. Seriously, it is the most soothing soup ever!
This soup is tasty, soothing and healing! You just can’t go wrong with this one.
And I will show you step by step how to make it. But first the recipe:
Celery Juice pulp that you have. I had about 14 stalks worth of pulp. If you don’t have celery juice pulp, just chop up about 7 or so stalks of celery.
6 small to medium sized potatoes. I had these to use up.
3 to 4 garlic cloves or more if you love garlic.
1 small onion diced or more if you love onion. I am one of those cooks that says to go with your gut and intuition. We don’t have rules in my kitchen. 🙂
2 veg bouillon cubes. I used organic, non GMO and gluten free. Note: depending on the diet you are following Ex.. Medical Medium perhaps, you could omit these and the soup would still be good with the use of salt and pepper
Salt & Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil. And again depending on your diet you could omit and sautee the garlic and onions in a bit of water.
Okay Let’s Get Started!
You might notice that my potatoes are on the soft side and look like they are ready to be used up and they are but that is fine for this soup because we will be blending it baby! I don’t waste any food because it is medicine!
Again depending on your diet you could omit this step entirely and just use water to saute the garlic and onions (not quite the same)
Can you smell these? Wow. The best smell in the world. Nothing better than garlic and onions cooking together. Cook these just until soft.
Into the pot they go! I like using a big cast iron pot like this one. I use these pots for everything!
Next is your 6 cups of water. Now you could take your two bouillon cubes and stir them into the water and use hot water before you put in the pot. Probably a better idea than what I did which was to just throw them in the pot. It turned out okay because it was blended at the end, but I could see they hadn’t dissolved after boiling.
Get your soup boiling and then slowly boil or simmer it until the potatoes are fork tender. Looking good already though!
The soup is done! And didn’t take long at all. And by the way, you can cut your potatoes in any size you want and even leave the skins on if you want. I removed mine because my potatoes were not that fresh.
Now time to head to your Vitamix or blender.
Now I have to say this was one of the best bowls of soup that I have ever had. I very much listen to my body and my body loved this! I intuitively know that the soothing and nutrient dense ingredients in the potatoes are what I need!
If I had to give one word to this soup, it would be SOOTHING. 🙂
I hope that you enJOY!
