Celery Soup

I had wilted celery in my fridge, which I know I could have stuck in a cup of water and brought some life back to it, but truth me told, I don't really like celery. I eat it occasionally because it's supposed to be good for you, but I don't like it. So, I made soup with it instead, and now I know how I'll be eating celery from here on out.



Ingredients:

-2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
-1 bunch of celery
-1 onion, chopped
-1 white potato, peeled and diced
- 4 cups chicken broth/stock
-1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- salt & pepper

Directions:

Melt ghee/oil in pan over medium heat. Add celery, onion, potato and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add stock and bring to a boil. Turn heat down, cover, and let simmer until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Add broth and veggies to a blender and puree until smooth. Return to pan and stir in lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and top with crumbled bacon. (I used prosciutto and potato crisps)
