🌱 Healing celery soup 🌱

We had lots of celery in our veg box this week and after reading about the benefits of celery I put it to good use and made this healing soup πŸ₯£ ok, it’s very green but green is good in my book πŸ‘ I like it to be thin but if you liked a thicker heavier soup you could add potatoes.

It has lots of celery, an onion, kale, garlic, ginger, chilli, miso, turmeric and black pepper. I sprinkled a mixture of ground cashews and nutritional yeast on top πŸ™‚

Here are some of the benefits of celery.

Helps Lower High Cholesterol

Lowers Inflammation

Prevents or Treat High Blood Pressure

Helps Prevent Ulcers

Protects Liver Health

Benefits for Weight Loss

Boosts Digestion and Reduces Bloating

Contains Anti-Microbial Properties that Fight Infections

Helps Prevent Urinary Tract Infections

May Help Protect from Cancer

Celery belongs to the Apiaceae plant family. The health benefits of celery are due to the excellent sources of beneficial enzymes and antioxidants. Celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin K.

The soup sounds lovely Ali, I think I will try this one. I must admit I really don't like celery but because of such health benefits I do try to have some, it is also my source of Selenium to help my Thyroid : >

Oh in that case it would be great for you. Maybe add a vegan cream to cut down on the celery flavour and make a creamier soup πŸ™‚

Thank you Jerry it was nice. πŸ˜€

I'll have to look at eating celery. I don't like it raw but have added it to recipes and that's fine as I can't reallh taste it.

I didn't realise it it contained so many nutrients.πŸ˜€

No neither did I. I am always looking at the nutrients of things as it is so amazing what nutrients are in things that may seem insignificant. I find it interesting. Like when I posted the benefits of chestnuts. I was amazed and people just trampled on them and walk by, saying that they are a nightmare to get into!!

It's amazing what's in our foid and we don't know it. More needs to be published on the benefits of certain Vegan foods.

I agree :)

Thank you Agoodenough for sharing this lovely soup!!!! I am excited to try it!!!!
