DIRECTIONS

  • Place vegetables, thyme, and chicken broth in a slow cooker and cook for 4-5 hours on high.
  • About 20 minutes before serving, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Whisk in flour, stirring constantly until smooth, then slowly begin to add the milk.
  • Continue to stir constantly until the sauce thickens and clumps of flour are gone and the sauce has begun to thicken, then remove from heat.
  • If you are partial to pureed cream soups use an immersion blender to roughly chop the vegetables in your crock pot (you can also transfer to a blender, but be careful!).
  • Slowly pour the milk mixture into the vegetables mixture in the crock pot, and continue to cook until heated through.
  • This will keep beautifully on "warm" for quite a while if you need to prepare anything else before serving.
