Easy, Filling Cream Soup Base
When a chemotherapy patient suffers from a sore mouth, eating anything can be a painful experience. In many cases, the patient can only eat a little bit of food before pain, nausea, or fatigue kick in. This simple base for a cream soup can be customized with your favorite ingredients, and is a good high-calorie food to eat with a sore or dry mouth.
Once you have the creamy soup base, you can create your ideal meal by customizing it. Some favorite additions may include steamed broccoli and cheese or pieces of baked potato with cheese and bacon.
1 stick butter
6 tablespoons flour
2 cups whole milk
2 cubes chicken or beef bullion
Pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the flour and stir to form a paste. Add the milk and bullion, cooking over low heat until the mixture has reached desired thickness. Add pepper to taste. You may need to add a bit more milk to reach the right consistency, depending on what other ingredients you add to the soup.
