PREPARATION

Our star ingredient of the day is celery, a vegetable used to prevent kidney infections as it acts as a perfect purifier, ideal for eliminating toxins from our organism. Furthermore, this food is optimal against diabetes, thanks to its antibacterial properties which purify the blood; it is also a great antioxidant.

The anti-inflammatory effect of celery lessens joint pain, which is why it is used in home remedies against inflammation. For all of these reasons, in addition to its skin benefits, this vegetable should not be missing in our diets.

Today’s recipe is perfect for the summer, when cold soups and creams become one of the freshest and most nutritious alternatives when facing even the hottest of days.

To prepare, first sauté the onion in the sunflower oil. Then, add the celery and apple. Let them cook for about 3 minutes and then add the vegetable broth (we will explain further on how to prepare a delicious broth) and the clove. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat and let simmer for fifteen minutes. Then, remove the clove and blend to a creamy texture. Once cold, add salt and pepper to taste before serving. We can present our cream of celery with croutons or even strips of smoked salmon on top.

To prepare the broth, first clean and dice all the ingredients except for the bay, cilantro and thyme. Sauté the onion and leek in a pot with a little olive oil. Then, add the rest of the vegetables and let them brown for an additional 5 minutes. Add the water and previously mentioned aromatic herbs. Once it starts to boil, let simmer for 20 minutes over low heat. Lastly, strain the broth.
