Love to make my homemade soups !

Cream of Broccoli Soup - This is comfort soup. Almost as good as tomato soup. Almost.

Cream of broccoli soup--hold the cream

Roast carrot soup with yummy yogurt

Cream-of-Whatever Soup Substitute Basic White Sauce (thick): 3 Tablespoons butter or oil 3 Tablespoons flour 1/4 teaspoon salt dash of pepper 1-1/4 cup liquid, milk or stock Melt butter or oil in saucepan. Stir in flour and seasonings. Cook over medium heat until bubbly. Add liquid slowly, stirring with wire whisk to prevent lumps. Cook until thick. Makes 1 cup or 1 can of condensed soup. Tomato Soup: Use tomato juice for the liquid. Add dashes of garlic, onion powder, basil and oregano. Chicken Soup: Use chicken broth for half the liquid. Add 1/4 t. poultry seasoning or sage. Mushroom/celery/chive soup: Saute 1/4 C chopped mushrooms, celery or chives and 1 T minced onion in butter before adding flour. Allergy Suggestion: If you use a gluten-free flour (rice, tapioca, etc.), you can make the soup gluten-free. And if you use a stock rather than milk, you can make it milk-free, too.

This is one of my favorite "diet" meals that doesn't taste diet. I add zucchini and sqaush when I saute the onion, carrot, and celery. I also use one box of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice (the quick cook kind) in place of the cooked wild rice. My family loves this soup! It's healthy and absolutely scrumptious!
