Cream of {fill in the blank} soup recipe?

I wanted to make my own cream of (broccoli, chicken, mushroom, celery, etc.) soup and thought I'd seen some recipes here on DS. But alas I can't find them now!

Anybody here make their own? I'd love some ideas! Thanks

For cream of chicken, I put 3 tbsp butter in pan & once melted, add 3-4 tbsp flour, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp thyme. Stir about 2 minutes over medium heat. Add 1 cup chicken broth & whisk to boiling, then lower heat. Add in a splash of milk, to consistency desired.

This is what I use

CREAM OF (FILL IN THE BLANK) SOUP

Ingredients:

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
4 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
salt and papper to taste


Melt butter over low heat. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Cook 1 minute. Don't let it brown. Gradually add milk and chicken stock, stirring constantly. Remove from heat when sauce has thickened (usually takes about 15-20 minutes.

also these options:

Cream of celery--saute a stalk or two of chopped celery with the butter before adding flour

Cream of mushroom--saute chopped fresh mushrooms in butter

Cream of broccoli--Add chopped steamed broccoli to soup after it thickens
