Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the sliced celery on a baking tray, drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, season and toss to coat. Roast for 20-25 mins until soft and slightly charred/crispy.
Meanwhile heat 1 tbsp olive oil over a medium heat in a large saucepan with a lid. Add the onions and leeks to the pan with a little salt. Cook for 10 mins until really soft, stirring occasionally.
Add the potatoes and vegetable stock to the pan, bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium and simmer for 10 mins with the lid on.
Add the roasted celery to the pan and simmer for a further 10 mins. Blend the mixture until smooth using a stick blender, then season to taste. Stir through oat milk or oat cream to enhance the creaminess, if you like.
Serve topped with chopped chives and an extra drizzle of olive oil.
