This creamy celery soup is healthy, fresh, delicious and light. It can easily be vegan, and it’s gluten-free and dairy-free (thanks to a little coconut milk). A swirl of salsa verde adds vibrant, punchy goodness.

Yes, it’s a creamy celery soup, but don’t let the creamy part fool you, because it’s dairy-free. Coconut milk is responsible for its delicious creaminess.

And the best thing? Celery soup is a super easy recipe. Basically, it’s a simple combination of celery, leek and onion. Firstly, sauté the diced veggies with garlic for 10 minutes, secondly, simmer with chicken or vegetable bone broth. After that, transfer to a high-speed blender for a silky soup or use a stick blender to blend right in the pan for a chunkier consistency.

While the soup is simmering, you can make the salsa verde. Salsa verde is a flavour-packed, punchy, vibrant green sauce made from just 6 ingredients:

Fresh herbs:

I use a mix of fresh parsley, basil and chives, but you can use whatever herbs you like best.


For a tangy, lemony burst of flavour.


2 cloves for a punchy garlicky flavour.

Sherry vinegar

You can use other types of vinegar, but I prefer sherry vinegar. Its well-rounded flavour works beautifully in this recipe.

Olive oil

Use a good quality extra virgin olive oil like my favourite from Erbology.

Sea salt and cracked black pepper

To balance out the flavours. Use sea salt rather than table salt. Cracked black pepper is more flavourful than ground.

It couldn’t be easier to make salsa verde. Simply, place the ingredients in a food processor and process to a chunky consistency. That’s it! You can serve immediately, or let it sit for 10 minutes to allow the flavours to meld together.

Pour your soup into bowls and drizzle with salsa verde and sprinkle with black pepper to serve. Et voila! A delicious, warming bowl of creamy celery soup with salsa verde.

This recipe only requires 2 tablespoons of salsa verde, here’s what you can do with the leftovers:
