Directions:

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened about 5 minutes.
  • Add the celery and carrots and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until slightly softened.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the carrots and celery are tender.
  • Use an immersion blender (or transfer the soup to a regular blender) to puree the soup until smooth. You can control how chunky you want the soup by blending for a shorter or longer time.
  • Stir in the milk and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley or dill (optional).

Tips

  • For a richer flavor, you can saute the onion, celery, and carrots in a little butter instead of olive oil.
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can transfer the soup to a regular blender to puree it. Just be sure to let the soup cool slightly first, and vent the lid while blending to prevent pressure build-up.
  • This soup is even tastier the next day! So feel free to make a big batch and enjoy it throughout the week.

Conclusion

This carrot and celery soup is a delicious and easy way to get your daily dose of vegetables. It’s healthy, affordable, and perfect for a quick and satisfying meal. So give it a try and enjoy!
