Cream of Something Soup

I have been really wanting some chicken spaghetti.  However one of the ingredients is cream of __ soup and that is not in my food rules.  Today I tried this recipe - it worked well and and the chicken spaghetti turned out great! You could add chicken, celery, mushrooms and saute with garlic and onion.  I just needed it to thinken the recipe. 

Cream of Something Soup
Yeilds:  1 serving
Weight Watchers:  6 ppt/ serving

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1Tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 pinch of table salt, to taste
  • 1 pinch of black pepper, to taste


  1. Saute garlic, onion and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. 
  3. Stir in flour; keep stirring until smooth and bubbly. 
  4. Remove from heat and add the chicken broth and milk, a little at a time, stirring to keep smooth.
  5. Return to heat.
  6. Bring sauce to a gentle boil; cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens. 
  7. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed to taste.

You make it ahead of time,  pour the soup into a pint canning jar and refrigerate it for up to four days.

Freezing Directions:

You can freeze these in batches in pint or quart size bags or use as you would a can of condensed Cream of Something Soup in any recipe and freeze that dish. A great way to keep “cans” at-the-ready for your CrockPot recipes is to make a quadruple batch and bag each “can” serving in a pint-sized freezer bag. Place those bags in a gallon freezer bag, label and freeze. When you need a “can” of condensed soup, pull out a bag, thaw, and drop it in your crock!
