“This recipe was given to me from my sister-in-law. I changed it a bit and it is absolutely delicious and very filling. I like to serve it before a light meal, like fondue. Don't let making a soup from a roux scare you- it is super easy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sliced carrot
  • 1 cup broccoli floret (a little bit more than a cup is fine)
  • half an onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (1 tsp. for veggie prep and 1 tsp for soup prep.)
  • 4 tablespoons liquid, chicken bouillion concentrate (use 2 tbsp. for veggie prep and the other 2 tbsp. for soup prep.)
  • 1 cup whole cream (15% works good too)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 -3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a medium stove top pot combine carrots, broccoli, onion, 2 tablespoons chicken bouillion, 1 tsp worchestershire sauce and enough water to cover vegetables. Cover and boil until the carrots are super tender.
  2. Once veggies are done place them and their juice into a blender ( it's ok that they are hot but hold a folded up dish cloth on top of your blender lid while blending to avoid injury or mess. And DON'T over fill the blender! Leave at lest 1/4 of the space clear!) Once everything is blended, set aside.
  3. In a large stove top pot melt the butter or margarine on med-high. Add the flour to the butter and whisk for 1 min until well mixed and the flour taste is cooked out of the mixture ( you have just made a roux.). Now quickly add about a cup of milk into your flour mixture carefully whisking out the lumps until you have a smooth texture.
  4. If you see your mix thickening up add more milk, never stop whisking.
  5. As you see your mixture thickening add more milk until your milk is gone, then add cream and then add water and your vegetable puree and the last 2 tablespoons chicken bouillion and 1 teaspoons worchestershire sauce. But add these ingredients only as you see your mix thickening all the while whisking.
  6. Once everything is added lower your temperature to med-low and whisk until desired thickness is achieved.
