I saw , made and copied the recipe for family members in one day! We all really like this. I have priced out the cost of ingredients and not only does it taste good it is CHEAP it make!

I tried this, and it was just okay with me. I'm not sure what herb it is that ruined it for me, probably the basil, but when I used this to make my favorite hash brown casserole, the flavor was way off and the casserole virtually ruined. This mix may be okay with some casseroles but is not really a substitute for the canned.

I love this recipe!! This recipe can be made into the condensed form by using 1/2 the amount of liquid required to make a standard batch, then frozen. I make this entire recipe up, ( into liquid form) and can it in pint sized canning jars. Ready when I need it, without the mixing, and no defrost time.

Very awesome alternative when you are out of "cream of" soup. Tastes just the same in a recipe. I prefer it without the basil as it doesn't go in some recipes. Use 1/2 the water if you are using it to replace a canned soup in a recipe.

Great recipe! We mixed all ingredients accept chicken bullion powder, then added 5 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 lb of chopped wild Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms. Once it cooked down to the consistency we wanted, we pressure canned it (5 pint-sized jars) at 10 lbs for 25 min. Wonderful flavor!!!

I have been using this recipe for at least 15 years from a heart healthy cookbook. I've found it is best to heat the water in the microwave to not quite boiling, stir in the mix and then cook on a lower power level til thickens. This is MUCH lower in fat and salt then canned cream soups.

This has helped as I can now make so many of the recipes that call for condensed soup. My daughter has Celiac disease and most of the store soups have wheat in them. Thanks so much.

Loved this!! Now I can make my own up when needed and don't have to worry about so much salt and msg.
