    I've used this recipe for years, or something similar. I mix a batch in a quart jar and have it handy on a shelf in the kitchen. The taste is somewhat different than canned soup, of course. We actually like it better now.

    I use 2/3 c. to 1 1/4 c. water, which makes it thicker like a condensed soup would be. You can tinker with the ratio to get it to the thickness you like.

    To prep this recipe, whisk the mix into cold water, then heat to boiling and simmer, stirring frequently, till it thickens. It doesn't take long. I've made it in the microwave sometimes, and last fall experimented with just stirring the dry mix into the other ingredients and then adding water. That worked okay, but I'm still tweaking that method and will never have very specific amounts for it anyway, just till it 'looks right'. Big help, eh? Click here for a pic of a couple dishes made with the soup. The cheesy potatoes were made by just mixing in the soup mix and adding water. Same concept as adding flour and milk for scalloped potatoes like usual. I did the green bean casserole, not pictured, the same way and it turned out good too. The crabby chicken recipe calls for a white gravy mix and the cream soup mix works just as well. For that, I made it up in a saucepan on the camper stove and poured it over, per the recipe. I don't think using it dry would have worked very well in that case.

    I really like this mix because it saves money, reduces sodium and fat, and takes far less space to store than the equivalent of soup cans.

    Here's a variation on the soup mix from Heloise

    cream-soup mix

    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1T dried onion flakes
    2 T cornstarch
    2 T chicken bouillon granules
    1 C non fat dried milk powder

    mix & store in an airtight container

    To make soup: put mix in saucepan & add 2 cups of cold water.
    Cook on med, stiring constantly til thick
    Add other ingredients (mushrooms, chicken, broccoli. leftovers) & let cook a few min longer.
