Emailed to me from a reader as a great Cream Soup Substitute in your recipes:
This is a recipe that has worked for me. I add left-over chicken, for cream of chicken soup, a can of mushrooms for cream of mushroom, a few shrimp for cream of shrimp soup., etc. It is designed for a diet low in fat and salt. Celery that is near the top of the stalk can be sliced thinly, and makes a lovely cream of celery soup.
