    Default Cream of Mushroom Soup

    Cream of Mushroom Soup


    Recipe Description
    I don't usually eat cream of mushroom soup by itself. Sometimes I use the canned stuff for recipes (but that's rare because Dave doesn't like mushrooms). I made this today so I could use it in place of the cream of mushroom soup in a crockpot recipe. I wish I had more mushrooms because I'd make more. It's *that* good.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    ~30 min cook time, and 5-10 min prep time
    Ingredients:
    • 8 oz. thinly sliced mushrooms
    • 2 c. boiling water
    • 3 chicken bouillon cubes or equivalent base or granules
    • 2 T. finely chopped onion
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 3 T. flour
    • 3 c. milk
    • salt and pepper to taste
    Serves:
    5-6 cups
    Directions:
    Preparation:
    In a large saucepan, combine mushrooms, boiling water, chicken bouillon, and onion. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Melt butter in another saucepan; blend in flour. Gradually add milk; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add sauce to mushrooms and season to taste with salt and pepper.

    *Notes: I made this with a combination of rice milk & soy milk because I am lactose intolerant. I also used onion powder vs. onion because I ran out of onions yesterday.

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to trying this some time when I remember to buy mushrooms.

    Sounds good and much better for you because the canned soups eem to have a lot of salt.

    Ya know, I can't say that I ever even thought about making this from scratch. I love the idea. I grew up having Campbell's. It was always one of my faves, because as kids, me and my BF would have it on cold snowy days. My mom always had that or Tomato. So many memories

    Thanks!

    I always regret not making a double batch of this. It's so tasty.

    Michelle, I wanted to tell you that I made it and me and my hubby just loved it. The kids don't like mushrooms, but that just left more for us

    That one's a keeper!

    Thanks again!

    michelle thank u
    this helps telling me you used Rice milk also since my 13 yr old is using this now instead of normal milk.
    I know I used rice milk to make boxed pudding did not turn out as normally, granual , but not bad, he ate it.
    so learning to cook with rice and soon almond milk for him.

    Is your son lactose intolerant? I haven't made this recipe in a while, and since then I've discovered Smart Balance lactose free milk. Dave says it tastes just like regular milk, and if he drinks it/uses it in his cereal, it HAS to be good (he's pretty picky LOL)

    Anyway, I am going to try it again with that milk, and I'm also going to send the recipe to my mom because she & my father like mushrooms too.
