Dry Mixes in a Jar... Cream of Anything Soup

Dry Mixes... these mixes are not for canning, but may be stored in canning jars.

Cream of Anything Soup Mix

"Digging yourself out of debt, when all you have is a spoon" Create your own Cream of "Anything" soup mix to have on hand for quick, easy casserole style dishes, cream sauces for vegetables, breakfasts and much more! This versatile recipe can easily be adapted to fit any recipe requiring a can of "cream of ____" soup. . .

A couple of notes BEFORE you Begin- there are a number of different kinds of bouillon and flavorings. If you are concerned about your sodium intake choose lower sodium bouillon granules. If you're concerned about MSG or similar flavorings, simply choose a different brand of bouillon that does not contain MSG. 

You'll Need: 

4 c. powdered milk 

1-1/2 c. cornstarch 

1/2 c. instant chicken bouillon granules 

4 tsp. dried onion flakes 

2 tsp. dried thyme 

2 tsp basil - crushed dried 

1 tsp. freshly grated black pepper 

Measure all ingredients into a Ziploc Bag. Shake well, transfer to vacuum seal bag, seal and store up to a year. This makes the equivalent of 18 cans of Cream of "Something" soup. 

To Use: 

1/3 C mix 

1 C water 

1 Tbs Butter (optional) 

Combine mix, butter (optional) and cold water in a medium saucepan, whisking gently, Cook over low/med heat until thickened. 


add 1/2 c. minced or chopped *_________* *Choose One or More*: 

Onions, Mushrooms, Asparagus, Broccoli, Celery, Cooked Chicken, Diced Potatoes, Tomato, Cooked Shrimp, etc. Use as you would in any Cream of "Anything" Recipe . Please Note, Some Brands of Chicken Bouillon are Saltier than others. We recommend a Lower sodium bouillon.
