Cream of celery soup vegan style may sound a little boring but don’t be fooled. This vegan recipe includes some amped up seasonings and spices to change what you may be thinking about celery soup.
You know the drill, right? You buy some celery and only use two ribs and then you’re left with all the rest. Use that leftover celery in this creamy, flavorful soup.
Cream of celery soup is an underestimated source of delliciousness, made possible by having an overabundance of celery. Turn your leftover celery into something awesome!

There aren’t many ingredients in this cream of celery soup and most, you’ll probably already have in your pantry. If you’re on a vegan diet, vegetable stock, vegan butter and coconut cream are probably staples for you.
One of the seasonings I use frequently is Bragg Organic Sprinkle Seasoning. It’s a multi-purpose seasoning that works well in place of your typical Italian seasoning.
It’s a nicely unique blend but, if you are unable to find it, feel free to use your favorite Italian seasoning blend, or try making your own. If you would like to try to make your own Italian seasoning blend, Spend with Pennies has a recipe for Italian seasoning.
Easy Step by Step Cooking
This soup is crazy easy. I just can’t express how easy so let’s show it in photos.
First Step: Saute the vegetables in olive oil or vegan butter.
Second Step: Add stock and simmer.
Third Step: Use standup or immersion blender to mix well.
Not on a Vegan Diet?
If you want to muscle up this soup recipe, use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. Change the coconut cream to heavy dairy cream. Try regular dairy butter instead of olive oil.
Try adding some chopped chicken. If you really want to go wild, add chopped chicken and about half a bag of frozen peas, carrots and potatoes. Put refrigerator biscuits on top then bake in the oven. Impromptu chicken pot pie!
Need Condensed Soup?
You can easily reduce the liquid in this recipe. Use only 1 cup or 1 ½ cups of stock when cooking the vegetables. You only need enough to make sure the vegetables are covered.
If you have a recipe that calls for Condensed Cream of Chicken soup, try using this one instead, to omit the meat and reduce calories.
