Homemade Cream Soup or Sauce Mix

Amy Alusa


This is a great convenience to have in the cupboard, but it also is healthier and less expensive than canned soups and sauces. You have control over how much of what goes into your soup or sauce, and this recipe is gluten-free as well. It's basically just a white sauce, but I didn't think of putting that in a mix, and putting just a few things with it will make it all the more tasty and quick to use. Check this out. I'll bet you'll like as much as we do!
