Potato And Celery Soup

Soups are once a while affair. In fact I hardly make unless for a light meal, served with toast. Soups like I always say is easy and simple to make. Compared to soups with meat or poultry, vegetable soup can be quite bland. So to infuse extra taste, use vegetable soup.

2 (about 150g) potatoes - cubed. 
2 sticks of celery - sliced 
1/2 litre vegetable stock (simmer carrots, red onion and celery for it)
5 garlic - chopped
2 stalks spring onions - sliced into 1 inch length
2 bay leaves
1 tsp dried thyme 
1 tsp dried parsley
2 tbsp oil
salt and pepper to taste

While oil is heated, saute garlic. 
Add potatoes, celery and bay leaves, stir and cook for about 3-4 mins.
Pour in the stock and let it simmer to soften veggies.
Next, add thyme, parsley and spring onion.
Season with salt and pepper. 
Stir and serve.
