I’m prepping to speak at the Shepherd’s Conference in Boise tomorrow, and am making a handout of some of my favorite pantry recipes for one of my sessions. Here’s one that I haven’t shared here before, from Family Feasts for $75 a Week.
Cream of Anything Soup Mix
How many cans of cream soup do you buy in a year? Here’s an affordable and more delicious variation of the same thing for less money. If it saves you a trip to the grocery store, that means even more savings: gas, time, and of course less chance for impulse buying!
Makes 5 c. dry mix (equivalent to 10 cans of condensed soup)
- 3 c. powdered milk
- 1 c. cornstarch
- 1 c. powdered chicken bouillon
- 2 T. onion powder
- 1 t. dried thyme
- 1 t. dried basil
- ½ t. black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container for up to a year.
To make cream of chicken soup: Whisk together 1/2 c. dry soup, 1¼ c. water and 1 T. butter. Bring to boil, cook 2-3 min. Will thicken as it cools.
