Cream of Celery Soup

Cream of Celery Soup by Custom Taste
In the slow cooker is right and so much better than that canned "soup" stuff. Sorry Campbell's it is just the hard truth. Low sodium, I am talking like ZERO here...okay fine like 0.01 grams per serving. You guys caught me. However the kicker  is it also has mushrooms! So it is like this great mix of celery and mushroom cream of soup that is easy, healthy (always) and homemade. Also takes no time on your part, you let your slow cooker handle the heavy lifting, er, cooking and you get to relax and do whatever. Wooty woo! Eat it alone or use it in recipe that calls for cream of soup! Or get super creative and turn it into a pasta sauce! So versatile I think it might make your head spin. Maybe an exaggeration, but you all get the idea.

I use the tops of the celery to add some sweetness (they taste sweet to me) and it adds another level to the soup without having to add anything extra. Double win!
