Hello there! How are you today?
Doing well here, just trying to get my week organized and planned.
I only have a few things planned and I'm so thankful
I won't be out of the house non-stop this week.
After all I'm a homemaker and I love to be at home!
Do you gals like to purchase cream soups from the store?
I always have them in my pantry for my easy go to recipes.
But, have you ever tried making your
own cream soup mix ins before?
I found this handy dandy recipe several years ago
and I love that it's a dry mixture.
Plus, it's fun to experiment, right??
So what you need to make your own dry cream soups is...
2 cups dry milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp black pepper
Mix all together and store in a mason jar.
Now for the soups...
Combine 1/3 cup of the mixture with 1 1/4 cups water into a saucepan.
Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, cook for about 2 minutes, stir.
Remove from heat. Cool.
For Cream of Chicken: use 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
instead of the water in above recipe.
For Cream of Mushroom: use 1 1/4 cups water,
add in 1/4 cup diced cooked mushrooms to the soup base.
For Cream of Celery: use 1 1/4 cup water,
add in 1/4 cup diced cooked celery to soup base.
I double the dry soup mix, since I have a larger family.
And the bonus to this mix is, it eliminates all the
other soup cans from your pantry!
I made up some of the cream of chicken soup...
It tastes just like the canned soup, but much better for you!
Win...Win... if you ask me!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week...
Thanks for stopping in!
Hugs & Blessings,
