Ingredients

Number of serving: 3
1/4 cup raw cashews

6-8 celery stalks (use 8 if you are working with younger and smaller stalks)

3-4 cups water

Juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups vegetable broth

3 tablespoons cilantro

2 cloves garlic, diced

1/4 cup dry sherry

croutons (optional)

Preparation

  • Soak the cashews overnight in water. Wash the celery and remove any tough outer strings by peeling them back with a knife.
  • This should not be necessary if working with young and tender celery. Chop celery into one-inch pieces and place in a pot with the water and lemon juice.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain the liquid from the celery.
  • Place the celery back into the pot and add the olive oil. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable broth, cilantro and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let everything cool slightly.
  • Drain the cashews and mix them into the soup, then puree everything in a blender in small batches.
  • Return the soup to the pot, stir in the sherry, and simmer over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately topped with croutons, if you like.
