"Souper" Easy and Sooooo Good! Here is a quick easy recipe for those times you need a good meal or meal compliment. Add your favorite sandwich and crackers or eat as a meal.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 tablespoons butter (margarine contains too much water and you won't get the same result.)
  • 1 12 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups milk (use skim milk for a lower fat alternative)
  • 4 chicken stock cubes or 4 teaspoons chicken stock
  • 2 -3 cups vegetables (or whatever combination you desire)

Directions

  1. In a soup pot, Melt 1 1/2 Tbs of butter (Do not burn it!).
  2. Add 1 1/2 Tbs of flour.
  3. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
  4. Stir it together, it should look like a thin dough.
  5. If it looks too thin you can add a little more flour, but be careful not to add too much or your soup will taste bland no matter what you do to it.
  6. Stir around for about 5 minutes (DO NOT BURN!!) If you accidentally burn it, throw it away and start over.
  7. Add 4 cups of milk, blend well (a wire whisk works great for this).
  8. Add 4 cubes or 4 tsp granulated chicken stock, dissolve and blend well.
  9. Add 2-3 cups of vegetables, cooked chicken, etc.
  10. Simmer for 30 minutes stirring frequently, soup will thicken, do not allow it to boil and do not burn it.

Thanks for posting this, Christy. I will use a salt substitute since I am on a low salt cardiac diet. All the store-bought cream soups are loaded with sodium, so I can't have them. Thanks again.

I was making chicken with stuffing and wanted cream of mushroom soup, so this was perfect! This went right to the top of my list of favorites to use whenever I need a cream of soup!

Wonderful Soup. I added carrots, onion, snow peas, green pepper, potatoes and whatever else I could find in my fridge to use up. This was just what I was looking for. I added garlic and a bay leaf. Thanks, just what I need for tonight and it had great flavor.
