hemp protein celery soup recipe

Ingredients
 

  • 2 tbsp olive oil   
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 head of celery (thinly chopped)
  • 2 medium potatoes chopped into 1-2 cm chunks
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock (or stock cubes and 4 cups of water)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (do not use if you don't like it spicy)
  • 2 tbsp Byron Bay Labs Nourish (Hemp Protein)
  • 4 tsp Byron Bay Labs Balance (Hemp Seed + Wattleseed)
  • ½ cup parsley chopped (you may want to add other herbs to your taste)
  • 4 tbsp sour cream, yogurt, or cashew cream

Method
 

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat,  add the onion, stirring occasionally, letting the onions get translucent golden (approx 5 mins)
  • While the onions are cooking, rough chop the garlic, whole celery (including leaves) and potatoes.  When the onions are translucent golden, add the garlic and stir 1-2 minutes, being careful not to overcook them. Add the chopped celery, potatoes, broth, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Add water until it just covers the veggies. Put a lid on it and bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer gently until potatoes are soft, (about 10 minutes)
  • Stir through Nourish Hemp Protein Powder
  • Turn off the heat and remove the bay leaves. Then add the parsley and any other herbs.
  • Use an immersion blender to blend until smooth, being careful not to splatter yourself (it's very hot). If you use a traditional blender, wait for it to cool a little and blend in batches. Warning: if it's too hot, the heat will cause air in the blender to expand and blow the lid off.
  • If you plan on eating the soup later you can put it in container and refrigerate until your ready.
  • Heat gently (overcooking with ruin the colour) and stir through the cream, yogurt or nut cream.
  • Put it into bowls and sprinkle with Balance hemp seed + Wattleseed (or Thrive hemp seed)
