Creamy Vegitable Soup — Dixie Stampede Inspired

24 Jan

If you haven’t been to Dixie Stampede, I highly suggest it. It is a dinner theater that’s well worth the price tag. My family and I visit every year – I have been more times than I can remember. The show features a battle between the North and the South where the performers sing, ride horses, participate in games and battle it out for the winner of the “war” it always comes down to the finial challenge, a flag pass through the audience.  Even better then the competition and the show is the food. They serve each guest a cornish hen, corn on the cob, cheesy biscut, pork loin, roasted potatoes and of course this soup.. it is the best part! The dinner is topped off with an apple turnover.  Oh and no silverware is included, its eat with your hands here!  Anyways enough about the show.. you have to try this famous soup!



3 TBS Butter
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic power
1 tsp corn syrup
3 TBS flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 c. chicken broth
1 1/2 c. water
2/4 c. finely chopped veggies ( I used one can mixed veggies, diced them until they were about the size of minced garlic)
1 pint half and half


1. In a 3-quart sauce pot melt margarine. Add onion powder, garlic powder and corn syrup. Simmer for 1 minute. Do NOT brown.
2. Add flour, pepper, salt, chicken broth, water and veggies. Simmer for 3 minutes.
3. Add half & half. Simmer until desired consistency ( may need to add a little flour to thicken it up) Stir constantly. Do NOT bring to a boil
4. You can garnish with parsley if desired.


Let me know how this works for you, pictures coming soon!
