Cream OF...... soup

This is an amazing substitute for cream of ______ soup.

  • 3 tablespoons wheat flour, or all purpose
  • ½ cup veggie broth, or 1/2 cup water with a veggie bullion
  • ½ cup prefered milk substitute
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon butter substitute, coconut oil, or other.


  • ¼ cup sauted diced celery (optional)
  • ¼ cup sauted diced mushroom (optional)
  • ¼ cup sauted diced onion (optional)


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Stir in flour; a little at a time; stirring until combined and smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and add the broth and milk, a little at a time, stirring to keep lump-free.
  4. Return to heat.
  5. Bring sauce to a gentle boil and cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings.I added some garlic power and onion power.
  7. Stir in optional ingredients if desired.
