  2. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the potatoes, celery, and celery seed, cover, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the potatoes are completely softened.
  4. If using cabbage, add it now and cook for 5 additional minutes.
  5. Transfer half of the soup mixture to a blender or food processor, and whir until pureed.
  6. Pour puree back into the pot and add the salt, pepper, parsley or celery leaves, paprika, and milk and simmer for 5 minutes.
