If you like add, cut up cooked meats, cooked rice, quinoa or all three.
*Puree celery first as an option
Note - here is a tip if you are having trouble with stringy celery in your finished product. Before cooking, put the cut up celery in a blender with some of the broth and puree on high. Then add to other ingredients and cook as usual. This makes the soup very smooth and almost creamy.

|Pureed celery is a nice smooth texture.|
I always use this option. Enjoy!!
