  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup of onion, diced
  • ½ cup main ingredient - your choice
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup broth
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • pinch of salt
  1. Place a small amount of butter in a large skillet and melt over medium heat. Add onions + main ingredient ( vegetable) . Let the onions + main ingredient cook for about 6 minutes. Add Garlic and cook for 1 minute. Set aside.
  2. Add rest of butter to the skillet and melt. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly add in milk and broth. Add cooked veggies and bring everything to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
  3. You can refrigerate soup up to 4 days in the fridge or you can "freeze" the soup. I freeze the soup in Ziploc baggies.
