Select crisp celery, wash thoroughly, trim off any discoloration on root and damaged portions: chop both leaves and stems. SIMMER celery and onion until tender (10 minutes) in the boiling water with the 1/2-teaspoon salt. Melt butter in saucepan, blend in flour, add milk gradually and cook with constant stirring until sauce boils and thickens. Add the 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and cooked vegetables and their liquid. Heat to boiling and garnish with chopped parsley. Chopped or riced hard-cooked egg is also an attractive and nutritious garnish. 5 servings.

Great recipe! Easy to make and delicious. Maybe less milk and blend the veggies. We will also probably add in some cauliflower and broccoli. So many different ways but so good on its own.

Very easy to make. I used a hand immersion blender after I poured the vegetables in with the milk. Very light flavor.
