Need a base for Condensed Cream Soup

cityhopper | Sep 25, 2009 02:53 PM

I am rather disturbed by the amount of sodium added in many canned condensed cream soups and was hoping to find an easy recipe as a substitute. I would love if someone can share their recipe in these two forms:

a) a dry ingredient condensed soup mixture


b) a recipe made on the spot from start to finish.

I did some searches online and have ran across a few recipes for condensed cream of "..." soup but most had mixed reviews at best. My purposes for the soups are mainly fillings for pot pie's or casseroles and would likely rarely be eating just as a soup (with the exception of a Cream of Mushroom soup).

I would also share I do have powered dry milk. I would use this base mix for a cream of celery, cream of chicken and cream of mushroom nearly 100% of the time.

Can anyone help? I will have a rainy weekend and would love a good recipe to include with a meal!!!!!!
