This is deflicious and easy soup. I added some garlic powder, a healthy bit of pepper and cubed up a ham steak to add at the end. I used an immersion blender and left it chunky. Yummy!

Love this soup so much - it’s so easy and delicious and non-dairy (I can handle butter) yet still creamy! I make it all the time. Celery seed is a great addition but honestly not required - don’t let that scare you off.

I have made this soup at least a half dozen times by now! We love it! So easy and delicious. Like Linda K., I didn't have celery seeds so took her tip about using the celery leaves. Yum! Thank you so much, Eric.

made this soup! Absolutely delicious! Substituted gold potatoes for russet potatoes just because I prefer them. Have made twice this week!

I just happened to have all the ingredients for this soup. Made it according to this recipe. My family loved it! They asked me to include it in our favorite recipe rotation!

Just made this. In times of the CV-19 pandemic you work with what is on hand. I searched for a recipe for "old celery" and this came up. I didn't have regular potatoes but I had white sweet potatoes and the worked out just fine. Delicious soup under any circumstances!

This is so good, and so easy! It's maybe 45 minutes from start to finish. It's one of only a handful of recipes that I haven't modified to make it more to my taste!

This was good. I used homemade vegetable broth and used about 1-1/2+ lbs potato. Next time I'd stick with 1 lb.

This is a great soup - did not have celery seeds so chopped up the fresh celery leaves, made it with shallots, added water and cut strips of fresh spinach! So yum! Thanks Eric!

This soup is wonderful with the recipe exactly as written! Lovely and rich and it’s terrific to get that result without having used milk or cream.

I made this today fully expecting to modify it since there were so few ingredients and virtually no spices. That notion vanished the moment I tasted it right from the pot. So delicious! I did not have celery seed but had dried celery leaves long ago and made celery salt so used that instead. Fantastic. I've already shared the recipe with friends via email and on Facebook. This might be the easiest soup I've ever made—and it took just shy of 40 minutes from start to finish. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Good base soup - a lot like cream of celery soup, but not as heavy. The celery is definitely the star here and there isn’t a whole lot else going on, and as such I found it a perfect starting point for something really fun. I mixed it up easily with lots of fun garnishes because who wants to eat the exact same thing every day... once with some dill, chives, parsley, and sour cream (think celery with ranch dip), once with some white cheddar, bacon bits, and sour cream (like a loaded baked potato), and once with some lemon zest and olive oil infused with garlic and thyme. Since celery goes with pretty much anything savory there’s a lot you can do here!
