This recipe makes the equivalent of NINE cans of "cream of something" soup, AND...as long as you store the dry mix in an air tight container, it is shelf stable.
BASIC SOUP MIX
2 cups powdered non-fat milk
3/4 cups cornstarch
1/4 cup instant chicken bullion powder
1 tablespoons dry onion flakes
Mix ingredients and store in an airtight container. Just make sure you STIR the mix a little before you measure it out.
For any recipe that calls for 1 can of "cream of ? soup", mix 1 1/4 cups of cold water with 1/3 cup of the above dry mix. Whisk it together until smooth and cook (or microwave) until thick. That's it!! Add it to any casserole that calls for a can of "cream of ? soup".
Looking for cream of celery? saute some chopped celery and add it to the cooked mixture. Mushroom? Add some sauteed mushrooms to the cooked soup. They even have cream of bacon soup now and well....you get the idea.
With the holidays coming up, I usually buy lots of creamed soups, but not this year!! The possibilities are endless!!
