Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Celery Cheese Soup
1 head of celery
1 onion, chopped
2 or more T of butter or ghee
1 quart of meat stock (I used chicken)
1 cup grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onions in the butter for 5 minutes or so, until they soften, but don't let them brown!
Clean and chop the celery, including the leaves. You may want to save a few leaves for garnish. Add the celery to the onions and stir. Then cover, and cook on low for about 10 minutes.
Add the stock and let it simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes, until the celery is very soft.
Add the cheese and puree with a hand blender. A regular blender or food processor will also work but will be so much more work to clean.
Adjust the seasonings, and serve a few celery eaves for garnish.
