Let cook, stiring, for about 1 minute, then pour in the chicken stock and cream, whisking constantly.Bring to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. **This makes about 6 cups. If youâre going to use it strictly as a soup, cut the cream back to ¸ cup and increase the chicken stock by 1 can.

**You can also increase the flour to ¹ cup (an additional 11g carbs) to get a thicker soup OR use 1T guar gum in place of the flour. If you use the gum ödonât blend it in w/the cooked veggies. Mix with ¸ cup stock before adding.
