Cream Soup Recipes
Cream soup recipes come in many different varieties. But all these recipes require you to have a cream soup base. You will use this base with other ingredients you decide to incorporate into your cream soup recipe. You are free to use your imagination and make all sorts of cream soups. Most cream soups take about 15 minutes to be prepared and are therefore fairly quick to make. You will need:
½ cup butter 2 cups milk 6 tablespoons flour 2 cubes chicken bouillon Ground black pepper
To prepare these cream soups first melt the butter in a saucepan. Add flour to the cream soup recipe and make a paste. Then add the chicken cubes and milk. Cook on low heat until it thickens. Add ground pepper to taste. To achieve the thickness you want, simply add milk while adding the other ingredients of the cream soup recipe.
To the base of the cream soup recipe, you can then add anything you desire, based on your cream soup recipe. You can add broccoli and cheese to make cream of broccoli soup. Similarly, you can add chunks of baked or steamed potato, pieces of bacon or turkey, stewed and pureed tomatoes, chives, lobster bisque, steamed and chopped up leeks, or cooked asparagus pieces. You can top your cream soups off with anything from grated cheese to cilantro leaves. Some of the most famous cream soup recipes are cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup, so you can also create these well loved cream soups. Chop up the chicken or mushroom and place them in hot water. Let it simmer for 20 minutes before draining. Add salt and pepper to taste and add the stock into the cream soup base. Stir to a boil. Add scalded milk and when the soup boils once more, it is ready to be served.
Remember that there is no rule when it comes to cooking, and as such you can create your own unique cream soup recipe. You can use the same base or come up with another one to use with your cream soup recipes.
