  • In a separate small sauce pan melt butter over low heat and then add flour and stir for several minutes to cook flour mixture. Then pour into the large pot with vegetable and broth mixture. Then add the cream and stir well until thickened. (You are making a white sauce)

  1. This looks really great, CQ. I am bookmarking this!
    How many will this generally serve? Would I cut it in half for 2 people?
    Just curious because I think it will be getting served regularly here. ;)
