Rich, creamy, and mildly savory, with a slight trace of chicken flavor, this homemade cream soup base can be a great starting point for a wide array of meals. It tastes a million times better than the kind that comes in a can and is so much healthier to boot! Besides, it will be one of the easiest soups you can make from scratch.

So grab your favorite saucepan and a whisk, and start creating the perfect fall and winter meal base. This homemade cream soup base will save you a bunch of time on busy weekdays, especially if you prepare it in advance and store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator (for up to a week). Without further ado, let’s get cooking!

Steps

1
Done

Melt butter in a saucepan before adding minced onion and garlic. Cook, continuously stirring, until softened (approximately 2 minutes).

2
Done

Stir in flour and whisk for one minute.

3
Done

Whisk in chicken broth and milk before bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Use this easy homemade cream soup base as the foundation for any number of quick, flavorful soups and dishes. For example, to make cream of celery, add a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped celery to onion and garlic and stir in a tablespoon of diced celery leaves accompanying salt and pepper. Or make the classic cream of mushroom soup by sautéing some mushrooms before proceeding with the first step of the recipe. Options are limitless!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
