Resources About Celery

Celery has been around a long time, and celery soup is no different. Celery has been grown in the marshlands, and has a history with cultures such as the Greeks, Italians, and French. It was originally known to be grown in winter and early spring and its focus was to be eaten to bring about some balance after a long winter of eaten primarily meat. In Asia, it’s sometimes pickled as a side dish. Celery itself is eaten as a vegetable around the world.

In the U.S., it used to be stored in restaurants in water, along with a preservative but that practice was later banned by the FDA. That’s because, over time, it was learned that the sulfides in the preservatives would cause allergic reactions to enough people that it was decided to halt that procedure.

Celery itself, although it’s about 95% of water, it’s known to be rich in Vitamin K and is a good source of energy. If you want to read more, click here for more details from Wikipedia.

FAQ and Tips on This Tomato Soup Recipe

Can I use Milk instead of the heavier cream-based ingredient?

Yes but, before adding in the milk, stir in thoroughly about 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (for roughly every 3 cups of this recipe). It will prevent (or significantly reduce) curdling. You don’t need it if you’re using Half-and-Half or Cream because they won’t curdle when mixed with tomatoes like milk might.

Can I run the tomatoes through a blender or extractor?

Yes. It’s easiest with something that does extraction, like for smoothies or other strong food processor. We use our large Nutri-bullet.

Can I use canned tomatoes instead?

Absolutely Yes! If you do, just drain them before using.

Can I make this without tomatoes?

Yes; just add in more of the tomato juice or V-8 to compensate.

What are some other additives I can use in this recipe?

You can add in some finely diced celery and carrots to cook along with the onions. However, the celery will take longer to soften and the carrots will take even longer than that. So, you might be adding about 15 or more minutes to cooking time.

There are a ton of preferences. Here are some very popular ones:

  • Crackers or Bread, on the side.
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches is a classic.
  • Another good side item is a simple lettuce salad.

For something heavier but not bulky for a meal, you can consider a stew recipe such as this one. Or, for a change of pace for soups, try this Black Beans Soup homemade recipe.
