FFC RECIPE: CREAMY CELERY SOUP

This has become a favorite for me. Besides its great health and nutritional benefits, this soup is delicious and a great meal to add to your menu. Celery is a low calorie vegetable and great for weight loss. This recipe can be served as an appetizer, or served as a main meal for breakfast or dinner. Adding some slices of bread would make this meal more filling. If you want to know more about the health benefits of celery, read my article "Healing Power of Celery" 


Ingredients (serves 4)
3 celery stalks with its leaves
1 onions
3 tomatoes
1 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp. corn flour
1 cup chicken stock/ condiments of your choice
2 Carrots (optional)

Instructions
Chop up celery, onions and tomatoes and place into a blender. Blend together and pour into a cooking pot. Put mixture to boil, adding the chicken stock. Wait for five minutes and then add the corn flour and coconut milk. Allow to boil for 10-15 minutes. Turn of fire. Chop carrots and place into pot. 

If you are not using chicken stock, you may add other spices to add any flavor of your choice. The chicken stock I use is usually very well spiced, so I do not need any additional spices.

I usually make a lot to last for 2-3 days. By the third day, I notice the soup is even more delicious.

Remember, food is art, so there is no right or wrong way. Play with this recipe and please share your ideas.
