Cream Soup Mix Recipe

Publisher Photo
This easy-to-make soup mix is great to keep on hand for those nights you need to whip up a satisfying supper in a hurry. It's a great substitute for canned cream soup in a recipe. Or, add leftover chicken, asparagus or mushrooms, for example, and you'll have a steaming bowl of delicious soup in minutes.—Kay Beard, Vass, North Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 12, 2014

"This is excellent! Makes an excellent soup and does not need any salt at all. I made a happy mistake and added to much onion powder. I will moderate it some next time - but what a delicious mistake. The only problem is the onion powder over powers anything else I try to add so I will follow the recipe better next time - but great cream of onion ;). Great consistency and really just delicious."

MY REVIEW

"Donnalee2- I don't know if this applies to your situation, but cornstarch, if heated for prolonged periods of time, loses it's thickening properties. Therefore, a recipe that is thickened with cornstarch will start out thick and then thin out again. Flour, on the other hand, does not loose it's thickening properties with prolonged heat."

"I keep this dry mix on hand at all times! Condensed soup is so expensive! But also very useful in casseroles and chicken pies. So, I use this mix. I did delete the basil and thyme for my "base mixture". When I am ready for it, I season according to what dish I am using it for. Excellent!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 5, 2012

"One of my favorite recipes! This mix is versatile, I use it most often in the crock pot and as a quick gravy. Want a brown gravy, just add a little browning sauce. Read the nutritional analysis, the mix has 10 grams of protein per serving, canned cream soup has 1 gram."
