  • A delicious, easy, and healthier alternative to canned cream of celery soup is homemade cream of celery soup. It uses pantry staples like all-purpose flour, chicken broth, and heavy cream, plus fresh produce and simple seasonings. You also have control over how much salt you use!
  • This recipe is naturally low carb. You can easily make it dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, and/or vegan if you’d like! Perfect for an all-inclusive dinner.
  • If you’re a fan of freezer meals, this is a must-make for you! Cream of celery soup freezes really well. Just let it cool completely, transfer it to a freezer-safe container, and freeze it up to 4 months. If you’re storing it in a sealable freezer bag, lay the bag flat in the freezer until the soup is solid. After that, you can store it upright without it taking up a ton of space.

Important Ingredients

  • Celery is the main attraction! When making cream of celery soup, it’s critical to use good, fresh, crisp celery. Your soup will taste drastically different if it’s old, bitter, or soft.
  • Vegetable broth can also be used instead of chicken broth. You can either buy store-bought broth or create your own in the Instant Pot. Bone broth is a great way to get extra nutrients.

Chef’s Advice

  • I kept the flavors in this dish quite simple. However, you can make changes to your cream of celery soup recipe to suit your tastes. Garlic powder and onion powder would be good additions, and parmesan cheese is always welcome!
  • If the cream of celery soup is overly thick after blending, dilute it out with a bit of additional broth. Too thin? Allow it to boil for a few minutes longer to decrease the liquid.

  1. In a large skillet, combine the celery and onion.
  2. Stir in the flour until it is evenly distributed. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and mix well. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, uncovered.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and set it aside to cool. Blend the soup in the pot with an immersion blender until it is smooth. Alternatively, mix the soup until fully smooth in a normal blender – see Notes. Return the pot to the heat and pour in the heavy cream after the mixture is smooth. Stir and cook for 5 minutes on low heat.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper if necessary. Serve the soup in serving bowls with chopped chives on top. Serve hot.


  • Where’s the immersion blender? Before mixing your soup in a conventional blender, read the following recommendations!
  • Make it gluten-free by using gluten-free all-purpose flour and ensuring that your chicken broth is gluten-free.
  • Use a dairy-free butter and a dairy-free cream alternative to make it dairy-free.
  • Use a plant-based butter, plant-based cream substitute, and vegetable broth to make it vegan.

Using a Standard Blender to Blend Hot Soup

  • No more than halfway fill the blender. It’s possible that you’ll have to combine your components in several batches.
  • Allow the liquid to cool for a few minutes after pouring it into the blender before blending.
  • Remove the center cap from the blender lid before mixing and cover the hole with a dish cloth instead. This will prevent the pressure within the blender from rising. While blending, keep your hand on the lid to keep it in place.
