or coconut oil
milk or chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
garlic or onion powder
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil over medium heat.
Stir in 3 tablespoons of flour (cornstarch if you're gluten free will work, too) and create a thick paste.
Pour in 1 cup of liquid. You can use chicken broth, milk, or a mixture of the two. For dairy free use all chicken broth or your favorite non-dairy milk of choice.
Stir until liquid is absorbed into paste. Cook over low medium heat for a minute until mixture thickens up.Add in salt and pepper to taste. Add 1/2 teaspoon garlic and onion powder if desired. If mixture is too thick, add in 1/4 cup liquid at a time until desired consistency.
For cream of mushroom soup, dice up a handful of mushrooms and saute in the butter for 2 minutes before adding in flour. You may also dice up garlic and onion and saute if you don't have any garlic or onion powder.
