    A lovely easy recipe, very tasty too. I always think that freshly made soup is much better than any tinned soup.

    Thank you for making this recipe so available. I substitute potato or mashed broad beans as thickener to make it wheat-free. Also I love just a hint of carrot – colour flecks and flavor enhancer!

    Excellent soup,the celery I used was at least two weeks old and this was still a very tasty soup, even my son loved it and he is not struck on celery.
    I will definitely be making this again, next time with fresh celery.

    I bought a celery from the greengrocers with masses of top leaf still on it. I’ve just made this soup, and included the leaves in the 900g of celery. I also added a little celery salt and white pepper. I make a lot of soups, and this is without doubt one of the best recipes that i have done. Fantastic.
