Cream of Vegetable Soup

Encouraged? Share this post...

Choose the vegetable of your choice and make homemade soup tonight!

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk or half and half
3 cups chopped veggies  (carrots, broccoli, celery, potatoes, cauliflower, etc.)
1 large onion
1 tsp salt and pepper
2 cups chicken broth

Melt butter.  Add onion and saute.  Slowly add flour, salt and pepper, stirring until well combined.  Slowly add milk.

Meanwhile, in a separate pan, cook the vegetable in the chicken broth.  When the vegetables are cooked through, combine with the milk mixture.

If you want a smooth soup instead of a chunky one, process everything together in a blender or food processor before serving.  I often double this recipe to have leftovers.
