When I first looked at the photograph, I thought the color was off. But after making this soup I found it really is rather pink! If I make this again, I would need to cook it longer because even after processing, the celery remains a little crunchy at the end of each bite. I'm heading back to the kitchen now to add some spices to the soup.
