Celery Soup

Active Work Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 8-10

No gluten and can be dairy-free


  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 2 celery roots (also called celeriac), peeled and diced
  • 3 leeks, washed well and chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 8 (or more) c good vegetable broth
  • 1-6 T organic ghee (or use olive oil... it won't taste as rich, though)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste. Add salt at the end to keep salt levels to a minimum.
  • Sprinkle with dulse flakes to boost mineral content.


  1. Chop the veggies, and plop them in a crockpot with broth and a bay leaf. Cook for 3-4 hours, until the veggies are soft.
  2. In batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Return to the crockpot, add the ghee and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle lightly with dulse flakes just before serving as a garnish.
  3. You can keep this in the crockpot for several hours on the "Keep Warm" setting with no damage to the soup. You may have to add some water.

How We Help

At DermaHarmony, our goals are to educate chronic skin care suffers about dermatology, share what contributes to health and wellness, and support our readers in any way we can. We manufacture and sell two soaps in our store that help with a variety of skin conditions. They're worth consideration if you have a condition that can be helped with pyrithione zinc, sulfur, or salicylic acid.
