Mamma's Cream of Anything soup

This recipe is no salt and no fat. Salt may be added to your taste.

Chop onion, fresh garlic and mushrooms or
whatever cream soup you wish to make.

Place fry pan and saute until onions are translucent.. Remove from pan and set aside.

In the same pan, add the chicken broth mixed with flour to pan and simmer until it starts to thicken...

Add mushroom onion mixture to thickened broth and simmer until thick. You now have about two cans of concentrated cream of mushroom soup. Change the mushrooms to what ever meat or veggie you want for the cream you soup you would like.

This can be diluted with 3/4 cup of milk to make a recipe of cream soup like you would get from a can, but without the added fat, salt and preservatives.

Base Recipe:

2 cups chicken or beef broth, I use HerbOx salt free bouillon
6 Tbls. flour
1 small onion
3 cloves fresh garlic
Salt and pepper to taste or needs.

Addition suggestions:

2 cups, chopped fresh mushrooms with a dash of nutmeg, chicken with a dash of sage or poultry seasoning, broccoli 1/2 tsp thyme, carrots 1/2 tsp basil, cauliflower with 1/2 tsp curry powder. Enjoy a healthy cream soup.

**This recipe is also on my blog. I use this whenever a cream soup is called for. We are on a no sodium diet so this really fits the bill!
