The best thing about slow cooking is the convenience and ability to customize recipes to your health needs. If you’re looking for heart healthy recipes you can use low-sodium/low-fat soups or make homemade soup. If you’d like to take a step further (and you have the time), try making common cream soups at home! Here are two recipes to get you started.

Homemade cream of chicken soup
½ cup chicken broth
½ cup milk
2-4 tablespoons of flour
salt to taste

Homemade cream of mushroom soup
½ cup veg or chicken broth
½ cup milk
2-4 tablespoons of flour
½ cup finely chopped mushrooms
salt to taste

Directions:
Step One
Combine broth, milk, 2 tablespoons flour, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; whisking continually.

Step Two
Remove from heat when reached to desired thickness. If not thick enough, add remaining 2 tablespoons of flour.

How long with these last in the refrigerator. It would be good to double so that you have some waiting when you need it!

It would be good for about 3-4 days in the fridge. One thing I read the other day is to make a big batch and then freeze in can size portions. You can use pint size freezer bags for the portions and then store them in a labeled gallon size freezer bag. Let it thaw before using.
