This is the result of trial and error, having tried several other celery soup recipes in the past and finding none to my liking. I'm happy to say this is the best of the lot. Everything comes together for a satisfying, tasty soup with just the right "stuff."

How to Make CELERY SOUP DELUXE

Step-by-Step

  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.
  5. Add the nutmeg and stir well. Spoon into soup bowls and add croutons. Enjoy!
