Prep time: 20 min   |    Cook time: 120 min   |   Ready In: 140 min


  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 1-1/4 cup onion, diced

  • 4 cups vegetables, chopped

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 3 cups water

  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half

  • 1/4 bunch green onions, diced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley

Saute the onions in butter until soft. Add vegetables.

When the vegetables are soft, stir in flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to make a roux with the butter/veggie mixture.

Stir in half-and-half and allow to thicken a bit to make a sauce. Then add water and keep stirring until a soup consistency forms. Simmer to allow flavours to blend and deepen.

Add other herbs and spices as desired.

To serve, garnish with green onions and parsley.
