Cream of Celery Soup

It is that time of year again where soups and warm foods just feel right. But can you still have a “raw” soup that is warm? Absolutely. I had extra celery in the fridge after a few days of juicing so I thought I would put it to good use. Celery is one of those very versatile foods that adds flavor and it also has many beneficial properties. It has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to flush out the kidneys. It has many anti-cancer benefits by quenching free-radicals, blocking hormones that encourage the growth of cancer cells and even prevents cancer cells from spreading.   Enjoy this rich and warm soup. Bon Appétit!

In a large pot, add the following:

½ stick of grass fed, pasture raised butter (it’s actually good for you)

1 onion chopped

1 head of celery, chopped

Sauté gently, just enough to warm the vegetables all the way through.

Add the following:

1 Tbsp. dried dill or ¼ cup fresh dill

2 cups of organic chicken broth

1 cup of almond milk

Stir gently just enough to warm the soup.

Drain the soup into a Vita-Mix of high powered blender and blend until smooth. Top with fresh dill or powdered sea weed. Serve as an appetizer or as a meal. Enjoy.
