NOTE: If you do not have soup base available, please use a piece of ham or chicken for this.
1 tablespoon ham base
1 quart chicken base
6 tablespoons margarine, divided
1/4 pound yellow onion, diced
1 pound potatoes, diced
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 ounces flour
1 cup milk
Chopped parsley for garnish
Combine ham and chicken bases in a saucepan and whish until no lumps appear.
Melt 3 tablespoons margarine in a stockpot and saut? onions until transparent. Add potato and pepper and stir until completely mixed. Add chicken and ham stock and stir until mixture begins to boil.
While mixture is boiling, microwave the remaining 3 tablespoons margarine 20 seconds or until melted. Whisk flour into melted margarine and stir until it forms a roux into the stock. The soup will start to thicken. Bring soup back to a boil, then slowly add the milk, whisking constantly. When milk is incorporated remove from heat.
Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
