Replacement for canned condensed cream of… soup

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons flour

1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth

1/2 cup milk

salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in pan, stir in flour and cook, stirring rapidly until thick.  Slowly pour in broth while stirring,  then stir in milk. Cook until thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in salt and pepper.

This can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

You can vary this by adding mushrooms, sauteed celery, etc.

    Thanks a lot for this! I don’t buy those canned soups, which has stopped me from making different crock pot recipes. I’m gonna try this out soon!
