I have been wondering about a substitute for the canned cream soups that make everything taste so yummy and make them so bad for you. Well I have found it! I found a fellow mommy blogger who makes safe healthy food for her family. Her site is stacymakescents.com
Visit her and enjoy!
Cream-Of Soup Mix
Adapted from Taste of Home
2 cups dry milk powder (non-instant is preferred)
¾ cup organic cornstarch (to avoid GMOs)
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Mix all ingredients together with a whisk. Store in an airtight container.
To make into soup, combine 1/3 cup dry mix with 1 ¼ cups water in a small saucepan. Whisk until smooth. On medium heat, bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes, until thick. Cool. This amount = 1 can condensed cream-of soup.
For Cream-of Chicken Soup: use 1 ¼ cups chicken broth instead of water.
For Cream-of Mushroom Soup: use water; add ¼ cup diced, cooked mushrooms to soup after it thickens
For Cream-of Celery Soup: use water, add ¼ cup diced, cooked celery to the soup after it thickens or add a dash of celery seed to the mixture while it’s cooking.
