Cream of Comfort Soup


4 Tbsp. butter

4 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt

  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour until roux forms.
  2. Add Half & Half, cream cheese, and milk (do not boil). Whisk until well blended.
  3. Cook whatever vegetables you've chosen (sometimes I just use a California mix of carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli) and then combine with the sauce.
