"This is supposed to be a quick, thick, homey, family soup. Suggested toppings are chopped herbs, croutons sauteed in butter, diced ham or sausage or anything else you have on hand that sounds good! It is suggested you try this with water first before stock, so you can taste the wonderful flavors of celery root and potato. This is from Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables A Commonsense Guide. Posted for the You Want What?! recipe posting game."

This is a very good vegetarian chowder! It reminds me of NE clam chowder, sans clams, so I will add a suggestion to try adding those in addition to the options of ham, sausage, etc., that are given. I think adding bacon would also be a winner. But it's still good just as is, mild and creamy with wonderful celery flavor.
