This recipe did­n’t start as an orig­i­nal of mine…I found it online, along with numer­ous oth­er ver­sions after search­ing “gluten free cream of cel­ery soup.” There were so many to choose from with many veg­an options as well.

My final deci­sion led me to this recipe and of course, I did some tweaking.

My ver­sion uses 24 oz of frozen mire­poix Cajun style veg­etable mix instead of just 2 cups of chopped cel­ery in the orig­i­nal recipe and I am thrilled with the result…I would sug­gest adding some chopped onions along with the cel­ery if you are fol­low­ing the original.

And speak­ing of immer­sion blenders, I did a review here com­par­ing 2 dif­fer­ent brands…it’s worth tak­ing a look!

  • 4 tbsp but­ter
  • 4 tbsp corn­starch
  • 2 12 oz bags mire­poix blend, Cajun style, Kroger Recipe Begin­nings or use 3 cups of fine­ly chopped celery
  • 4 cups milk I used 2%
  • salt and pep­per to taste


  • Thaw the frozen mire­poix Cajun blend veg­eta­bles in the microwave for 5 min­utes on high per bag, drain well. If using fresh cel­ery, chop fine.
  • Melt but­ter in a medi­um saucepan over medi­um heat and add the veg­etable mix or the chopped celery.
  • Add a lit­tle salt and pep­per and saute for 5 — 7 minutes.
  • Mea­sure out 1 cup of the milk into a bowl and whisk in the cornstarch.
  • Add the milk and corn­starch mix­ture into the pot, stir­ring while the sauce thickens.
  • Add the remain­der of the milk, stir­ring and cook­ing over low heat until thickened.

I love using ingre­di­ents that save me time and deliv­er a great result…that’s why I chose to use the mire­poix frozen veg­etable mix­ture. I like that it has green pep­pers and onions in the mix AND I don’t have to chop anything!
Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I believe Kroger is the only store that car­ries this prod­uct, as well as the reg­u­lar mire­poix blend that I use in sev­er­al oth­er recipes…if you have a Kroger near­by, it’s worth get­ting a few of them to have on hand!
This soup can be enjoyed as is or thinned a bit with chick­en broth or more milk. I have added a lit­tle dry sher­ry when using as a sauce in oth­er recipes…let your imag­i­na­tion and taste buds be your guide!
