Warm Celery soup for the weekend soul

Weekend approaches and with it a hope of nice weather, still on the chilly side though. I want to take advantage of it and would like to have more time on a Saturday (why not Sunday!?) morning so I thought of this recipe that I will start tonight or early morning in the crock pot and will leave your kitchen smelling beautifully and wake up your taste buds by meal time

I used leftover celery that have partially gone bad in the fridge. I cut the “not nice” ends and chopped the rest. I added it to a saucepan with 1 1/2 tbsp of hot coconut oil. Added 1 chopped small onion and 1/4 red pepper. When they are well cooked, added 1/3 cup of flour, 1 1/2 cup of 2% organic milk (or half and half if you prefer a richer soup) and 1 1/2 cup vegetable broth.

Add the mix to the crock pot and set it in low for 4 hs.

Another option: Use Vitamix or Blendtec!
