Served with crusty warm bread or savory crackers, this is a hearty soup that is perfect for dinner or for warming up tummies after an afternoon of sledding and ice skating.
Tender carrots, celery and onion give layers of flavor to the chicken broth base. And it only takes minutes to melt butter, add flour to create a basic roux, and before you know it, you'll be slowly adding whole milk to create a wonderful basic White Béchamel Sauce - who knew French cooking sauces were so easy? This is the base for many of my creamy soups - but you can lighten it up by using 2% milk rather than whole milk, or make it even creamier and richer by using half & half.
Hope that you enjoy this as much as we do - and stay warm my friends!
