Instant Pot Celery Zucchini Soup
I have been reading that celery is an amazing food with tons of health benefits such as lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure, detoxing, improves heart health, supports weight loss and so much more! With all these benefits, I want to make a Celery Recipe. I really love my Instant Pot Cauliflower Zucchini Soup, so I based this Celery Recipe with the foundations of that one in mind. This Celery Recipe turned out awesome – it is so delicious, and the bonus is that it is super healthy! It is creamy (without having to use any dairy), and very comforting, and flavorful! Be healthy and enjoy!
