I love using cream soups but I don’t always have it in the pantry.  It all started when I needed cream of chicken soup for a recipe and whipped up this homemade cream of chicken soup.  It was such a success that I started making all sorts of things.

Once you see how simple it is, you will stop buying the stuff at the grocery store and make it instead! Not only does it tastes amazing but you know exactly what is going into it and save money too.

How to make cream of celery soup recipe:

First, melt butter in a medium saucepan.

Second, add the flour and whisk everything together until all the clumps are gone. You want everything to be well combined.

Next, pour the chicken stock and milk into the flour mixture. Keep whisking until the mixture is smooth.

You can use an immersion blender if you have one but it really is just up to you. The whisk works fine for me.

Add the seasonings- salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.

Finally, bring everything to a simmer until the soup begins to thicken. This usually takes only a few minutes so don’t step away from the stove. You definitely need to keep a close eye on this.

Add the celery as the last step. This is optional but you can also add finely diced onion with the celery to the mixture.

Remove from heat and that  is it!  I told you it was simple!

Give it a try!

How to store homemade cream of celery soup:

Store in airtight container in refrigerator. My favorite is a mason jar. They are easy to reuse, inexpensive and I normally always have several on hand!

Feel free to use the container of your choice as long as it is air tight. I just prefer to use a mason jar!

You will love having this on hand to use in your favorite recipes. Plus, if you are like me and realize in the middle of cooking that you are out of this, just whip it up in minutes!

I’m not sure why I thought it was complicated before. It is very simple to make and delicious too.

I have been slowly trying to make more and more things at home. I love that I don’t have to worry about what is inside or any hidden ingredients.
