1 stick celery, finely diced

1.25 litres chicken stock (use 2 cubes)

for the Parsley Butter

1 small pack flat leaf parsley

75g melted Golden Cow butter

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the potatoes, onion, garlic and celery. Lower the heat and cover the vegetables with a butter paper (or a lid). Cook gently for 10 minutes.

Add the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Blend in a food blender or with a stick blender and check seasoning.

To make the parsley butter, pick the leaves from the parsley and place in a blender (keep the stalks to flavour soups or stocks — they can be frozen). Blend the parsley with the melted butter. Drizzle the parsley over the top of bowls of the hot soup.
