This is hands down one of my favorite soups. It is SO easy, I mean simple simple simple easy! Gray and I both love this and we make it often during the winter. This recipe is from Real Mom Kitchen, if you didn't know, I am a big fan of her recipes!
1/4 cup flour
3 cups tomato juice or V-8 juice
1/4 tsp baking soda
2-3 cups milk
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried basil (optional)
Melt the butter then add flour and whisk until smooth. Add the tomato/V-8 juice. Stir until it thickens. Whisk in baking soda, 2 cups of milk, sugar and salt. Cook until heated and desired thickness. Taste, add more milk if needed. Stir in dried basil. Serve hot.
