The main principle of cooking
Cream soup is cooked on the basis of butter and flour:
- Melt butter in a pot. Add flour. Mix it until you get the consistency of a paste. Add milk or heavy cream. If you want you can also add bouillon cubes for a more intense taste. Cook the mixture over low heat until it thickens. Control the density of the mixture with milk — top up if necessary.
- You can add steamed or boiled vegetables, or any other ingredients to the base. Before doing so, make sure to blend them to the consistency of a thick puree. It should be homogeneous and viscous.
- Homemade white bread crumbs, sour cream, cheese, green onions, or bacon are usually added before serving.
