Making the White Sauce

Place the butter in a 1-quart saucepan. Melt it on medium heat. Next, add the flour and stir it until it thickens.

It should be warm and free from lumps until you are ready for it to be added to the soup.

French Soup: “Bonjour.”

Take the 2-quart saucepan, and melt two tablespoons of butter in the pan. You can also add the sliced onions. Let them cook until softened and translucent.

Next, add the canned chicken broth to the pan.
