Celery Soup

Celery, the ‘Edible Cutlery’ is known for its crunch & mild taste. Most of the times,it is used to get that ‘background flavor’ in dishes. No wonder it is frequently added in soups & stews too. When I make this soup I try to keep it simple,refraining myself from using lots of spices as they will mask the unique flavor of celery.If you go by the looks, this soup is a broth with different vegetables which gives a bright color to this otherwise clear soup.

One stalk of celery contains about 10 calories. Some say that it has  ‘negative calories,’  which means that you spend more calories digesting it than eating it, which supposedly helps with weight loss. 
 
Celery, onions, and carrots make up the “holy trinity,” known as the “mirepoix,” of French cuisine. These three vegetables are used together as the base for many French dishes, including sauces, stews, soups, and stocks.
