Oh my did I hit the jackpot!

 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.
