Cream of “something” Soup Mix Recipe
I like cooking with recipes that call for Cream Soups like Cream of Mushroom, Celery and Chicken, so here’s a great substitute for those.
They are usually pretty easy to put together. I do not like paying for the soups though! I’m frugal or thrifty – whatever you want to call it. I’m glad my best friend found a recipe called Cream of “Something” Dry Soup Mix! You make it up with dry ingredients and store. When you have a recipe that calls for Cream of XXXX you can use this mix! It was really simple to whip up and I had all the ingredients in my house.
Here’s how I did it. Scroll down for printable directions:
You will need:
1 Cup Non Fat Dry Milk 3/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Bullion (you can crush up cubes if you have them) choose any flavor
4 Tablespoons Dried Onions 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil
1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme 1 Teaspoon Pepper
Put all your ingredients in a bowl.
Stir until completely mixed.
Pour into a container.
Label your container. When ready to use mix 1/3 Cup Dry Mix with 1 1/4 Cup Water. Cook Until Thick.
I used it in my Tuna Noodle Casserole Tonight!
One child didn’t notice and ate a lot. The older one noticed it was different and said he didn’t like it. My husband and I could not taste the difference. I kind of think the older one saw me cooking in the kitchen and got it in his head that it was different. I’m not sure he tasted anything different.
I got my recipe from One Orange Giraffe!
