  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, tip in the celery, garlic and potatoes and coat in the oil. Add a splash of water and a big pinch of salt and cook, stirring regularly for 15 mins, adding a little more water if the veg begins to stick.

  2. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 20 mins further, until the potatoes are falling apart and the celery is soft. Use a stick blender to purée the soup, then pour in the milk and blitz again. Season to taste. Serve with crusty bread.

Worried when I looked at the recipe it would be land, but it was very tasty and will make it again. I made it for lunch and cut all the ingredients to a third of the quantity and it was only just enough.

I make this but use low fat Creme fraiche instead of milk. It's gorgeous and so easy. A firm favourite in our house.

Lovely soup, surprisingly didn't miss the onions. Definitely make again but I found the portions to be small. 3 small servings or 2 large.

Really simple recipe to follow, I used sweet potato instead of white potatoes and they worked fine in the recommended quantities. The soup tasted great and was the perfect consistency. Would definitely make again.

Followed the recipe and resisted the temptation to add onion, which is my standard soup base. I put the lid on for the first 15 mins and in effect sweated the veg. It tastes very nice but is quite thin. Was surprised that the potato flavour came through quite strongly so don’t be tempted to add more. Would make it again.

Works well, and tasty. Perfect for lunch. Quantity suitable for 2, not 3-4!
