Toward using up the fresh food first, I made soup

Toward using up the fresh food first, I made soup, Spicy Vegan Celery-Potato Soup, to be exact. :D

Spicy Vegan Celery-Potato Soup
Serves 8


2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1/4 cup ginger, fresh, chopped
3/4 cup jalapeño peppers, chopped
1 cup onion, sliced
5 cups celery, chopped
8 oz white new potatoes, chopped
13 1/2 oz coconut milk + 13 1/2 oz water
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 cubes Rapunzel No-Salt-Added Vegetable Bouillon
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp thyme, dried


  1. Prepare ingredients as directed above.

  2. Sauté garlic, ginger, and jalapeño in olive oil for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add onion and celery; Sauté for ten minutes more, stirring occasionally.

  4. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and bring to a simmer; cover and turn down heat to low before allowing to simmer for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are quite tender.

  5. Blend soup with an immersion blender in the pot, or allow to cool and blend it in a blender.

  6. Serve warm or chilled.

Shog bought a lot of celery on his recent run to the store because no one was buying it, and he figured I could do something with it. And you know, if one omitted half the potato and added at least an equal amount of apple with a tablespoon of honey, I think that would be a lovely soup, as well (but Shog despises the texture of apple, so I went the other way; he scored the ingredients and deserved to enjoy the results). :D

Oh, and either soup, but especially the apple version, would go well with a cashew cream, I believe. Thoughts? Have any of you made a cashew cream before?
