Cream Soup in a Container

Cream Soup in a Container

Have you ever needed a cream soup for a recipe and realized your out? Now you don't have to run to the store!

2 cups nonfat dry milk
1 cup cornstarch
2 Tablespoons dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Throw all of the ingredients in an airtight container and shake, shake, shake. Stick it in your cupboard and it's ready for the next time you need a cream soup.

Cream Soup (plain)
Equals one can of condensed cream soup

1/3 cup dry Cream Soup in a Container
1-1/4 cups of water or milk (I like skim milk)

Whisk together in a medium saucepan and stir constantly over medium-high heat until it thickens. It will take just a few minutes. If you're using it in casseroles or soups you can just whisk it together in a bowl an dump it in. It will thicken as it cooks!

To make the soup you're looking for, try the following:

Cream of Chicken Soup: Add 2-3 teaspoons of chicken bullion (or 2 bullion cubes)
Cream of Mushroom Soup: Add a 4 oz. can of mushrooms & 2 teaspoons of beef bullion (or 2 cubes)
Cream of Vegetable Soup: Add 1/2 cup of cooked veggies.
