How to Make Cream of Whatever Soup Mix


  1. This is mix for making the equivalent of a can of cream of celery, or mushroom soup, which so many recipes call for.
    To make the mix, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.
    Mix them up, distributing everything evenly.
    Store the mixture in a quart size container, well sealed.
    It will keep for several months.

    To cook: combine 1/3-cup mix and 1-1/4 cups cool tap water in a small saucepan.
    Stir it well and bring it to a boil over medium heat.
    Boil and stir for a full minute.
    Remove from heat.
    It is now ready to use in any recipe calling for a can of Cream of Mushroom or Celery or Chicken Soup.
    You can also make this in the microwave in which case reduce the liquid to 1 cup, because none will evaporate during the cooking process.
    An additional benefit to this recipe, it contains no added fat.
    If you wanted to, you could add a tablespoon of margarine for more flavor.
