Condensed Mushroom Soup


CONDENSED HOMEMADE CREAM OF  MUSHROOM SOUP

Condensed cream of mushroom soup is easy to make homemade, and you can feel better knowing what actually goes into it!
Yield 2 1/2 cups of the equivilent of 2 cans of condensed soup, or the exact equivalent of 2 cans of condensed soup.
Prep time: 5 mins.

Cook time: 13 mins
Total time: 18 min.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely-chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp. celery seed (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. dried thyme

DIRECTIONS:

Add vegetable stock to a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk and flour until the flour is dissolved.
Slowly pour the milk mixture into the boiling vegetable stock, whisking to combine. Whisk in the mushrooms and remaining ingredients. Reduce heat to medium, and bring the mixture back to a very low boil, stirring constantly so that the bottom of the pan does not burn. Let the mixture boil for about 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove pan from heat.
Either use the condensed soup in a recipe immediately, or transfer it to airtight containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
*This recipe is NOT meant to be consumed as-is. It is a concentrated soup, which means that it either needs to be diluted to be eaten as a soup, or mixed into a recipe that calls for condensed soup. :)
