Potato / Celery Soup

  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 medium / 1/2 large onion, chopped into 1/2" chunks
  • 8 - 9 medium potatoes, chopped into 1/2" chunks (enough to fill a standard colander when washed)
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 t celery seed
  • 1 t cilantro
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1/2 t mustard
  • 2 t tarragon
  • 1 t peppercorns
  • 1/2 C oatmeal

  1. Put 3 - 4 inches of water into cooking pot, bring to boil.
  2. Add spices, garlic, celery, onion. Stir well.
  3. Add potatoes, bring to boil again. Make sure that there's enough water so the potatoes stir easily.
  4. Stir well.
  5. Add oatmeal.
  6. Reduce to slow simmer. Stir frequently.
  7. Cook until thickened, and you're tired of waiting.
  8. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg or paprika. Serve with sourdough bread and nice dark beer (Newcastle Brown Ale is my fave).
