    Wildflour's Note:

    I make a LOT of homemade soups in the winter, we get TONS of lake-effect snow here, and get snowed in a lot. Soup always hits the spot on a cold, wintery day!

      I was so worried about making this soup base recipe. Thought I would mess it up terribly but it was really quite easy. After adding the flour mixture I did use canned asparagus cut into small chunks to make cream of asparagus soup. We enjoyed the soup and will be making this base recipe often with other vegetables.

      I used this recipe as a substitute for the Cream Of Mushroom soup when I made Chicken Dinner Pot Pie. It was creamy and deliciously flavored. I can see I will be using this often now that I have found such a great substitute for Cream Of anything soup! Christina

      Great recipe! I used it in place of canned Cream of Mushroom Soup, and added fresh button mushrooms, to make a Chicken Lasagna I was making. Came out GREAT! Also, I used homemade chicken stock in place of the canned chicken broth. I will be using this recipe from now on in place of those salty soups.
