Recipe: Cream Soups

I got this from the blog my friends and I share about recipes. http://recipestop.blogspot.com/2008/10/cream-soup-mix.html

This sounds like an econmic way to make Cream Soups (like Cream of Mushroom or Chicken).

She got this recipe from her Sister-in-law. she says it is SO much cheaper than buying creamed soups and takes up less room in your pantry too. (she has not figured the exact price but she thinks she has about $5 into ingredients and made the equivalent of 27 cans of soup...wow, that is value!!!).

2 c. powdered milk
3/4 c. cornstarch
1/4 c. bouillon granules (chicken for cream of chicken, beef for cream of mushroom, etc)
2 T. onion flakes
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. pepper

Store in an airtight container. When ready to use combine 1/3c. of the mix with 1 c. water. Cook and stir until thick. Makes 1 can of soup.

Mix makes the equivalent of 9 cans of soup

I guess you would need to freeze it. That is a lot of soup but, a great idea.

Oh duh! Everything it dried! What a dork! Now it is an even better idea.
