Celery Rice Soup with Lemongrass is Plant-Based an Gluten-Free


This healthy celery rice soup has so much depth in flavor. It’s seasoned with lemongrass, made with two types of rice, and is slow cooked with white wine and vegetable stock. It’s an allergy-friendly recipe that was originally shared with us by the chefs at Foods Matter, a British resource for celiac and food allergies. Unfortunately, I don’t have new photos for this recipe, but you get the gist with this older low-res image. Despite the lack of new pics, I have updated this post and added nutrition information and options.
