set the stove to low or medium heat and grab your pot you’re going to be cooking with.
put the butter in, and let it heat up for a minute. (any oil will work too).
add your onion and garlic, and if your heartdesires, feel free to add some pepper flakes for a nice kick. (this is mostly to add flavor).
after you’ve sauteed that for a few minutes (until a light brown color), add your mushrooms and let them cook. (if you dont have mushrooms, you can use bacon, zuchinni, potatoes etc.).
once you have your onions and garlic and mushrooms, you can sprinkle in some flour to give your soup a little thickness. if you prefer to use another kind of thickener, thats totally okay!
after we put some flour in we’re gonna go ahead and stir it up good to make sure it’s lump free. also let it cook for at least 30 seconds.
then you can add your milk in and stir it up. I usually go ahead and put the broccoli in at this time. (any other vegetable will work too! :)).
now you can add in the chicken stock and let it simmer for as long as you want and it’s ready! feel free to add any spices you want throughout the course of making this. I didn’t put anything specific in the ingredients because I tend to just add my spices in by taste.
some spices I use that you could use are: seasoned salt, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder (although we’ve already used those in this recipe, I feel it adds good flavor.) thyme, curry, and accent. I also loveee to throw some valentina in when i cook. feel free to use my suggestions. or not 🙂 have a good day and hopefully you made this!
