Creamed Celery Pulp, Potato & Cauliflower Soup that is Dairy Free!

A beautiful bowl of this creamy dreamy dairy free soup … with celery juice pulp, potato, and cauliflower.

Amazing Dairy-Free Soup! Soothing & Healing Soup!

I love this soup and made it just the other day after a request from my 14 year old daughter. She loves this soup and that makes me HAPPY. I won’t lie because I know how absolutely healthy this soup is and also delicious I might add, and we all know how hard it is to get kids and teens into healthy eating… just sayin. πŸ™‚

And the best part is that I am going to show you exactly how to make it!

Let’s start with our ingredient list:

1 Head of Cauliflower or a Bag of Frozen Cauliflower

3 Medium Sized Potatoes peeled

3 Sticks of Celery washed

Celery Juice Pulp (as much as you want) and if you don’t have pulp because you don’t use juice celery like a lot of us do, just leave this out πŸ™‚

3 Garlic Cloves chopped

Fresh Ginger or Powdered Ginger

Fresh Turmeric or Powdered Turmeric

Some type of hot spice or hot sauce to put a little bit on the cauliflower before roasting

Potato Water or Stock

Olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Let’s Make It!

Assemble your ingredients!

Chopped celery, onions, potatoes, nubs of ginger, turmeric, garlic and celery pulp

Roast The Cauliflower

My bag of frozen cauliflower in the oven roasting

The first thing to do in this recipe is to roast the cauliflower in the oven. I put it in a bowl and drizzle a little olive oil or coconut oil on it and sprinkle with a buffalo spice or you can toss in a little bit of buffalo sauce or hot sauce of some sort. The ginger and turmeric offer some heat to the recipe too so there has to be a balance that works for you and your family’s heat level but we like a little heat.

Next is to put the tossed cauliflower on a sheet pan and cook or roast in the oven. I usually cook it at about 350 degrees until soft and the way I like it but you could raise the heat and really roast it to a nice brown color which adds a totally different flavor. You can play with this recipe to get it to how you like it.

Once the cauliflower is cooked the way you like it, you can add it to the soup when the time is right. I am also going to add here a reminder… in cooking feel free to experiment! That is the whole fun of it. And please note that you can be roasting the cauliflower while you get the rest of the soup going and here is how we do that….

First we saute the garlic in a little olive oil just until fragrant. In the picture above I didn’t use enough so I have adapted the recipe to 3 cloves! Again use your own judgement after making it the first time.

As for your pot. Use a pot that you love to make this soup. I used my brand new cast iron Staub pan that I just got the other day. Everything about making soup should involve love right down to the pot! -)

My new Staub pot… love it!

Next add the onion and the spices and stir a bit and let it cook for a minute or two. I use a grater for the fresh ginger and turmeric and do about 6 full grates. If you are using powered you will need to play with it but I am guessing 1/2 tsp of each would be good.

The onions, garlic and some grated ginger and tumeric….

Now add the celery and cook for a few minutes until a little soft. Next add in the celery juice pulp, potatoes and the potato water and or stock and salt and pepper.

My Potato Water

What is Potato Water?

Potato water is just the water left from boiling a pot of potatoes. πŸ™‚ I save that amazing water and use it in soups, gravies and stocks. It is loaded with nutrients and helps to add a creaminess to the soup because of the starch content. I am an ADVOCATE of the role of potatoes for nutrition and recommend eating them often. So add as much potato water or stock of some sort as you want. I added just enough to cover the ingredients a little as you can see in the picture above.

If you don’t know what kind of stock to use I suggest using an organic low sodium bouillion cube or two added to water. You can also use leftover water from boiling or steaming veggies. Always keep that nutrient dense and flavorful water too!

Add salt and pepper to your liking and any other seasonings that resonate with you. I added a bit of a vegetable seasoning that I get from a local grocery store that I like. Now boil the soup until the potatoes are tender.

The soup cooking up

Next transfer into a blender or Vitamin and blend until smooth. You can also opt to leave some of the soup out and add back in later so you have some chunks if you want. Either way is good.

When the soup is cooked it heads to the Vitamix or Blender to puree
Looking good in the Vitamix

Now Bowl and enJOY!

The final bowl of this delicious soup! Creamed Celery Pulp, Potato & Cauliflower

And keep your leftovers in the refrigerator for an easy go-to source for a bowl of nutritious and delicious creamy soup that is dairy-free, soothing, and loaded with nutrition.

I like to keep my leftover soup in jars like this:

I hope that you enjoyed this recipe and that you try this soup. I would love to hear any additions you make to it and what your favorite heat ratio is. This batch did not have enough heat for our liking and we missed it but no worries I just added in a bit of hot sauce after the fact and it worked! That is a great soup hack also! πŸ™‚

Have a great day everyone!

Celery Juice Pulp & Potato Soup

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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!

My potatoes, onion, garlic, celery juice pulp and my celery juice to sip on while I cook. πŸ™‚

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!

6 cups of water and my 2 Vegetable Bouillon cubes
Olive Oil and Lotsa Pepper. I love pepper!

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)

Garlic and onions and EVO and pepper

Can you smell these? Wow. The best smell in the world. Nothing better than garlic and onions cooking together. Cook these just until soft.

Celery Juice Pulp, Potatoes and 2 Veg Bouillon Cubes go into the pot.

Into the pot they go! I like using a big cast iron pot like this one. I use these pots for everything!

6 cups of water for the Celery Juice Pulp Soup

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.

Celery Juice Pulp Soup 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 potatoes are fork tender.

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.

My finished product. A delightful bowl of Celery Juice Pulp & Potato Soup

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. πŸ™‚

I hope that you enJOY!

Breast Health, celery juice, Liver, liver health, Lymphatic System, Thermal Imaging

Celery Juice & Breast Health

Breast health very much ties in with our lymphatic health.

Our bodies have a network of lymph vessels and lymph nodes which area part of the body’s immune system also known as: The Lymphatic System. The Lymph System collects fluid, waste material, and other things such as viruses and bacteria that are in the body tissues, outside the bloodstream, and moves them along for disposal from the body.

In the same way that veins collect and carry blood through the body, lymph vessels carry a watery yellow fluid called lymph. Lymph flows through the lymphatic system and eventually drains into veins. This system helps to get rid of waste products from the body and to keep things moving along.

The Liver

The liver ties in here too. The liver being the master filter moves along toxins as well. An overburdened, sluggish and stagnant liver can make for a comprised removal of these toxins and invaders in the body both impairing the liver and the immune system, not to mention the circulatory system. I have written about sluggish blood in the past and you can read that article here: https://maggiesvitamins.blog/2018/10/15/are-you-suffering-from-toxic-blood/

Celery Juice for Breast Health

I am a big proponent of drinking celery juice daily. It helps the lymphatic system, the liver and more! At our wellness centre “Superior Shores Wellness Centre” in Thunder Bay, Ontario, we focus very heavily on breast health by providing Thermal Imaging for our clients as well as education on prevention, ways to move lymph, diet advise, supplementation suggestions and more. We even has a Psychotherapist on staff to help with supporting people on their journey of breast health and mental health around all of the challenges involved in this area. I myself am both a Certified Life Coach & Board Certified Nutritionist who loves to help when it comes to breast health also.

Celery Juice

As for celery juice, I cannot say enough about the benefits of adding in daily celery juicing when it comes to breast health.

According to Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, in his book “Celery Juice” Celery juice not only cleanses and frees the liver over time, it helps cleanse the lymphatic system as well by bringing in fresh deliveries of living water filled with sodium cluster salts, trace minerals, and phyto-chemicals to flush out the troublemakers. Rejuvenating the lymphatic system has everything to do with cleaning up breast tissue. Celery juice’s unique travel velocity and saturation rate also mean that it has the ability to find its way through dense, hardened, fibrous breast tissue all the way to the skin. Celery juice provides anti-tumor, anti-adhesion properties.” By the way this is great news for people with dense breasts!

Anthony also mentions how heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum settle in the breast tissue as well. We are pleased to offer testing for heavy metals as well to support our breast health program. You can learn more here: https://www.maggieholbik.com/hairmineralanalysis.html And as a side note, hair analysis can be done from anywhere you live by simply sending in a sample to our lab here in Canada.

And even what to do with that celery juice pulp

What To Do With That Celery Juice Pulp!

Attn: Celery Juicers

For all of us on the celery juice train or movement, I am sure we have all experienced this or thought about this, especially in the beginning. What do I do with this pulp I have leftover after juicing my celery?

I can always tell now when people are new to celery juicing because this topic comes up. After awhile most of just get to the point where we toss it. Day after day of juicing kind of makes you detach from the pulp. lol

However, there can be good uses for the pulp so I thought I would share some here. And I will let you know that I got some of these from a thread on a group post. I love how people are so willing to share information and how we can all help each other. And I am sure no one minds me sharing these because these ideas just help everyone so why not πŸ™‚ I am inspired to try some of these and I am going to juice my celery now so I can take a pulp picture for this blog post! lol

So here we go on with some ideas…..

First I will start with a few things I have done. I have put it in a soup that I made with potatoes, onions and carrots, etc. And then turned it into a creamy soup by blending it. Very yummy. Use garlic too and you increase the health benefits. It’s a very soothing soup.

I have also added it into hummus ie. mixed it with blended chickpeas πŸ™‚

Here are some ideas from others:

I’m saving the pulp for veggie broth plus onion skins, a bag of carrot pulp, and other veggies I froze. Gonna boil them up and can into quarts.

I usually juice my celery, then make a separate juice either for myself or my hubby with carrots, apples, cucumber, parsley and put all the pulp together, throw it in a food processor with some garbanzos, salt and pepper, dried herbs and any other seasoning I find fun, I blend it, adding a little bit of juice I just made or water… then lay it out flat on a tray lined with parchment paper, and put in the oven at a low temp to dehydrate and make crackers. They’re actually pretty tasty! You can have the crackers with avocado or hummus or salsa

Sometimes mix it into pet food….or I make muffins out of it …my friends love them .

I use it to make my own celery spice. Just dry it in the oven on the lowest for like 7-10 hours, depending on how much it is and how dry it is. Then I mix it in the blender. Use with everything! 😍

My horse loves it more than any other food

Feed it to my chickens!πŸ”

I add it to my smoothies.

**** My favorite one: You can dry it and crush it, and use it as salt πŸ™‚

 I use it to thicken soups or chili’s

Well there you go folks a few ideas to get us started. Please share with me any ideas your have or ways that you use your pulp. Let’s keep this list of ideas going. I am so glad to see more people following the work of Anthony Williams, Medical Medium. Every day I am witness to lives improving because of this information. πŸ™‚
