A bowl of creamy blue cheese celery soup.I discovered this soup when looking for ways to use up an excess of celery. It makes an elegant lunch or first course for a special dinner. It would have been wonderful with a slice of crusty bread or croutons.



  • 1 head celery
  • 1 onion
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 6-8 baby Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp oil or butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 1 package blue cheese (5 oz.)
  • 1/2 apple juice
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • salt, pepper and paprika, to taste.
The ingredients for creamy blue cheese celery soup.


  1. Chop entire head of celery in very short sections. Larger sections may leave long strings in your soup, even after cooking and blending. Chop onions and potatoes, and mince garlic.
  2. A head of celery being chopped.
    Celery, onion and potatoes chopped on a cutting board.
  3. Heat butter in a stockpot. Add vegetables and sauté until softened but not browning, about 5 minutes.
  4. The vegetables being cooked in a soup pot.

  5. Add about half the blue cheese, apple juice and stock. Bring just to a boil then simmer the soup until the vegetables are very soft, 20-30 minutes.
  6. The soup pot with vegetables and blue cheese added.
    Steam rising from a soup pot.
  7. Transfer soup to a blender or use an immersion blender to pureé the mixture. If you wish to skip this step, it's just as delicious with larger pieces of vegetable.
  8. The cooked soup in a blender
    The cooked soup being blended.
  9. Put the mixture back in the stockpot and rewarm it with the remaining blue cheese crumbles and half and half. You can also save the remaining blue cheese to add directly to the serving of soup.
  10. The creamy soup placed back in the pot to warm.

I will have to try this soup. I love celery, and I love Blue cheese. I cook for one, so I suggest that if you want to make a smaller batch that you chop the celery, use enough for your recipe and freeze the rest on a cookie sheet and once frozen store it in a ziplock bag for more batches. I have been freezing celery for a long time to add to my vegetable soup.
