A Healthier Cream Soup Mix

It is getting to be that time of year again!  The cooler weather pushes us to make more casseroles, and crock pot meals and do less grilling.   Many of these recipies call for “Cream of XX Soup”.   I received a FABULOUS recipe from my trainer to healthy up the cream soup! I have used it alot, and it works really well!

Dry Cream Soup Mix

Mix together the following:

  • 2 Cups non-fat dry milk
  • 3/4 Cup corn starch
  • 1/4 Cup chicken bouillon granules (I have used low sodium /mushroom/beef/chicken/onion base too)
  • 2 Tbsp Onion Flakes
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp basil, oregano, majoram and pepper

Store in an air tight container.  To use mix 1/2 cup of the above mix with 1 1/4 cups water and cook until thick and bubbly, stirring often.  Add 2-3 tsp smart balance or other butter substitute and melt.   This amount makes equivalent of 1 can soup mix.
