Cream soups are an ingredient in so many recipes. However, I have been purchasing fewer processed items as of late because of some dietary changes. Even without that, I like to control as much of the nutritional content as possible, so making my own makes sense which is why a homemade version of cream of something soup was born!
This soup mix is really simple to make yourself, and much tastier. This is the base for cream of something soups and we have included several flavor variations. This recipe will make the equivalent of 6 cans of soup.
To store, purchase canisters at the Dollar Tree that are BPA free. You can also reuse an old mason jar or an old glass spaghetti jar.
To use the mix, add 1/3 cup to every 1/4 cups of water used in a recipe. If preparing in a saucepan, heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
A can of cream of soup costs around $1.50 at the grocery. This homemade version runs about $0.75 a serving. If you shop sales and use your coupons, you can reduce the cost for the ingredients even more.
