Rated 5 out of 5 by Reenabelle from So Incredibly Delish! I have only had my Vitamix Blender for 4 days, so this was the first time I made soup. Oh my gosh! It was so good!! It was piping hot when I took off the lid. I love soup and could eat it every night of the week. The Celery Potato Soup was rich and creamy and extremely easy to make. No unusual ingredients. I had everything for the recipe in the frig. The recipe makes a large batch, but it was soo good my husband and I ate it all in one meal. Even my husband who is not a big fan of healthy foods said it was good. I'll make a convert out of him yet! Can't wait to try the next soup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by melxmas from Deliciously Creamy! This is an excellent recipe! Makes a large batch. I substituted cooked potatoes with leftover mashed potatoes and the buttermilk with one cup powdered carnation milk with one tablespoon apple cider vinegar. Omitted salt since already in mashed potatoes. Served with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penpen from Great Soup[ I did make a few changes to accommodate the ingredients that I had on hand. I used 1% milk withy a little lemon juice added in place of the buttermilk. I used low sodium chicken stock in place of vegetable stock. I didn't peel the potatoes. I added cold milled flax seed for the Omega 3's and additional thickness and I added a little bit of spinach I had left in my freezer to use it up and add additional color and vitamins. No additional salt was added but I did add fresh ground pepper and I cut back to 2 cloves of garlic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Allie from This soup is creamy and delicious! Will taste even better without garlic. I'll omit garlic cloves next time. But love the texture of this celery potato soup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BruSue from Good flavor, comfort food that's healthy too! I made this soup as a main dish, accompanied only by a roasted turkey breast. My family ate the soup and left the turkey! Even fussy eaters loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bfaconti from really impressed I'm amazed at how good this turned out. I was searching for a way to use up 2 pounds of celery that was about to go bad if not used in a few more days. Didn't even have any potatoes, buttermilk or onion but was able to improvise with butter + milk + lemon juice in place of buttermilk. I'd love to try this recipe as written. I'm sure it is even better.

allergy to milk what is a suitable substitute for low fat buttermilk Te
You can use any kind of milk in this recipe. Almond, cashew, coconut, soy, etc. will all work just fine in this recipe. If you find it tastes as though its "missing something" squeeze a little lemon, or add some red wine vinegar to incorparate a bit of acidity that you are missing from the buttermilk.

If a person desires to replace the buttermilk with an alternative liquid such as almond milk as suggested, should a vinegar also be used to resemble the tangy flavor of buttermilk?
Yes a little acid at the end of the blend will give a similar flavor profile.

Can I replace the buttermilk with something else?
Yes you can use any liquid that you would like. An alternative milk would be great especially almond milk or cashew milk.

Would this work with a non-dairy replacement for the buttermilk? Maybe almond milk?
Yes an almond milk or cashew milk would be a great flavor addition to this recipe instead of the buttermilk.

I just bought a Vitamix and was under the impression it cooked the soups through friction. What is different about potatoes that you have to cook them first?
The potato is used as a thickening agent in this soup. The starch content after it is cooked will be optimal for thickening.
