Celery Soup

We’ve had a few viruses the last couple of months that just keep getting passed around like a bad joke. This is my go-to dish when we’re feeling under the weather, so it’s been making an appearance lately. It’s also great for cool days, but really, since it’s so light and refreshing we have it in the summer even.
It’s great for a sore throat and sinuses, I think it has to do with that little dash of cayenne.
6 ribs celery, finely chopped
49 1/2 oz can chicken broth, low sodium if possible
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
dash cayenne red pepper
fresh cilantro leaves, if desired
SImer everything but cilantro together in a pot for 15 to 30 minutes.
Strain out celery, and serve hot.
If desired, put cilantro leaves in bowl and pour hot soup over them.
This will release some flavor into the soup without overpowering or getting mushy.
VARIATION: Add 2 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables and cook until tender.
