No More Cream of Preservatives!

I've found so many awesome looking recipes that I've not tried because they call for cream of whatever soup, which is pretty much cream of preservative soup. Thankfully, I've found an awesome clean, all-natural and even gluten-free solution. It's so easy to put together, store in the pantry and throw together whenever you need a can of cream of chicken, mushroom or celery. 

Soup or Sauce (SOS) Mix
From One Good Thing By Jillee

2 cups powdered non-fat dry milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup instant chicken bouillon (regular or low sodium)
2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
2 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a re-closeable plastic bag, mixing well. Equal to 9 (10.5 oz) cans of cream soup. Store in closed plastic bag or air-tight container until ready to use. It does not have to be refrigerated.

To substitute for 1 can of cream soup:
Combine 1/3 cup of dry mix with 1 1/4 cups of cold water. Whisk until well blended. Cook and stir on stove top or in microwave until thickened. Add thickened mixture to casseroles as you would a can of soup.


  1. I was just thinking of a way to make this!! I followed a crock pot recipe tonight and hated using the can of creamed soup! thanks for sharing!
