Cream of Vegetable Soup Recipe

This recipe works for most vegetables – although I don’t recommend it for members of the cabbage family.  My favorites:  peas, celery, spinach, asparagus, mushrooms


3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 cups milk (or dilute with up to 2 cups of vegetable/chicken broth)
1 cup cooked pureed vegetables (of your choice)

Melt butter.  Blend in flour, salt and pepper.  Stir until well mixed.  Remove from heat and blend in liquid ingredients.  Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Then add the pureed vegetables.  Cook for 10  minutes over low heat, stirring frequently.
