How to make it
- Sauté the onion dices and celery in the butter until the onion is tender and translucent but not browned.
- Add the flour and stir and cook until a soft paste has formed but not browned.
- While still cooking, pour in 1/2 cup of the broth while stirring with a whisk.
- Gradually add the rest of the broth, stirring to make the mixture smooth and not lumpy as if you were making gravy.
- Continue cooking until the mixture is bubbly and has thickened.
- The vegetables should be soft and tender.
- Pour two to three cups of the liquid into your blender.
