Until food companies finally begin to use BPA (Bisphenol A) free cans, prepare your cream soups from scratch and use fresh and frozen vegetables. Make this simple cream soup base to use in your main dish and side dish casseroles instead of condensed cream soups. Feel free to add chopped cooked mushrooms or herbs to this soup base for different flavors.
Gather the ingredients.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
Stir in flour.
Keep stirring until smooth and bubbly.
Remove the pan from heat and slowly add the chicken broth and milk while stirring or whisking to keep the mixture smooth.
Return the pan to heat.
Bring the sauce to a gentle boil and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until it has thickened.
Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
