Test Kitchen Tip

To prevent splattering if you’re using a standard blender, remove the plastic insert on the lid, cover it with a towel, and purée the soup in small batches.


Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Add onions and celery, cover pot, and sweat until softened, 10 minutes. Add garlic, tomato paste, and 1 tsp. celery seeds, and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.

Stir in whole tomatoes and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer soup 10 minutes.

Purée soup using a handheld blender, or in batches in a standard blender, and return soup to pot. Stir in cream; season soup with salt and pepper. Garnish servings with celery leaves and celery seeds.


Covering the pot traps steam and moisture, helping the aromatics sweat and soften more quickly.


Cooking the tomato paste before adding any liquid intensifies its flavor and adds more depth to the soup.
