Creamy Celery and Potato Soup


  • 2 tablespoons low fat spread
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 650gms celery
  • 350gms potatoes, sliced
  • 500gms vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf (optional, remove before blending)
  • 1/8 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, start conservatively or leave it out entirely

  1. Heat the spread in a big pot over medium high heat, and add the onion, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes
