How To Make celery soup deluxe

  • 1
    In a large saucepan, melt 2 Tbsp. butter over medium heat; add vegetables and saute 5-10 minutes, or until they become slightly transparent. Add seasonings, except for the nutmeg. Combine thoroughly.
  • 2
    Add the chicken broth and mix well; simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 3
    While soup is simmering, combine 2 Tbsp. flour and 2 Tbsp. softened butter in a small bowl until a paste is formed. Add this mixture, a little at a time, to the simmering soup, whisking constantly until thickened.
  • 4
    Gradually add the half-and-half to the mixture, and whisk until desired thickness is reached. If too thick, you may add a small amount of water.
