This soup doesn’t take long to prepare. You simply chop your vegetables – we use celery, carrots and potatoes. Boil in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes or until tender. Do not drain.
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a pot. Slow stir in 1/4 cup of flour. Mix well and slowly add milk. Cook until thickened then add vegetables and water. Mix well and it’s ready to serve.
This soup is perfect topped with grated cheese and would also be tasty with a sprinkling of chopped bacon and/or chopped green onions.
