Y'all, you will not believe how long I have been wanting to post this recipe!

You know that my story goes back to my Mom, and her lack of cooking ability as well as the fact that it was the time when TV dinners we uber popular, boxed meals, and the dreaded condensed cream of _________ soup that appeared in every casserole known to mankind.

But, as a kid, I LOVED them. I would make a can of the cream of mushroom soup, with crackers, and that was a meal.

My Mom even put a can of cream of mushroom soup in our mac and cheese (blue box of course) 😖 Now that idea just makes me shudder!

But, what are you supposed to do when a recipe you love calls for a can of it?

Nobody wants to take a bunch more time working on a homemade sauce right?

I mean that is why we are using a can to begin with. We want tasty, but don't have a ton of time to spend over the stove.

Plus, the soup also adds a creaminess and thickens up the gravy or sauce that you need for those recipes.

And, if we are trying to cut out processed foods, and/or sodium, canned soups just end up gathering dust in our pantry.

So that means those favorite recipes are filed away under things we used to make.

Or so we thought.

Through the years of this "cleaned up" eating journey of mine I have tried to figure out how to create the perfect condensed soup substitute.

One that you, or I, could just dump and go like the original version, and I can tell you that I have come up with sauces that tasted good but didn't fit the bill of really being exactly like the can of soup those recipes call for.

The main example I was working with?

The holiday classic, Green Bean Casserole.

My grandmother would dump a can of green beans and a can of cream of mushroom soup together, top with french fried onion rings, and TADA - casserole!

That was the dish that I tested.

So, when I finally nailed it down, you know I did the happy foodie dance all over my kitchen!

Hawk joined in.

It was a mushroom soup dance party!!

I am pretty damn excited to share this recipe with you!!

I have variations for cream of chicken, and cream of celery too.

But you could do cream of onion by adding some sauteed onions, or cream of garlic, the skies the limit.

A HUGE plus to the whole dealio?

  12. I like the idea of making your own condensed soup! I would love to try making a vegan version of condensed cream of mushroom using this DIY method.

    1. Yes, you could use vegetable stock and possibly a rice milk? You could even use all vegetable stock, it just wouldn't be as creamy.

  13. Oh I have to check this out. It sounds yummy.

  14. I definitely will be trying this. Have you tried freezing or pressure canning this recipe? I’d love to just have it on hand in the pantry or freezer.

    1. No, with the dairy I am not sure that either of those are options.

    2. No, I have not tried freezing this soup.

  15. Yield shows 1 Pint, but the liquid ingredients for the cream of chicken are only 1 cup. Am I missing an ingredient by chance?

    1. I am sorry, it should have read 1/2 pint. A can of the condensed soup is 10.5 ounces. This recipe will easily replace that. They are packed pretty full.

    OMG! I just made the cream of chicken and it is amazing! I’m of course mixing it into a crockpot recipe, but I could eat it by itself!!! (Which I would NEVER do with a canned version...blech 😝) thanks for your recipes and I’m so glad I was too lazy to dress and drive to the store!!!

  17. Could I use cornstarch instead of flour or xanthum gum for keto?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch (what you would need to sub for the flour) contains 10.5 grams of carbs VS less than 2 grams for a teaspoon of xanthan gum.

  18. Oh wow, THANK YOU! Just stumbled on your site and this recipe and I feel like doing a happy dance already. This is exactly what I need, and it looks so simple and easy, with wholesome ingredients. I have a chicken casserole recipe that I adore, but it calls for cream of celery soup. Now that I'm doing keto, that's definitely out. But thanks to you, I can whip this soup up the day before and finally enjoy my favorite meal again. Can't wait to try the broccoli cheese soup too!

    1. Yay! I am so glad you found me! Yes, I am so happy I can indulge in my old favorites again too! The cream of mushroom soup makes for some delicious pork chops too!

  19. If using xanthan gum do you treat it the same as flour? Whisk in with butter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, whisk it in and then continue on with the next step.

  20. Can I substitute either almond flour or coconut flour for the xanthan gum?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have never used either so I am not sure how to advise. If you use them it will add carbs. I will have to give it a try next time to see how it works.

      Delete
  21. Thank you! I can't wait to try making this to use in casseroles. I'm thinking that I can substitute riced cauliflower for rice to create low carb casseroles

  22. I'd like to make a larger batch, could this be frozen to use later?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have not frozen it since we eat it about as fast as I make it! I have made 3 batches just this week!! I found this info on the net for you "Although creamed soups sometimes separate when you defrost and reheat them due to the cream base, it can be remedied with careful blending". If you do freeze it I would love to hear how it works for you!

      Delete
  23. I would like to know about canning this. Is it possible to can when using xantham gum?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am not sure of any issues that xanthan gum would present. However, I have been told that canning dairy is not suggested. Have you canned dairy in the past?

      Delete
    2. I have and only use a pressure cooker. Was also thinking of switching to coconut cream to omit the dairy. This could be such a game changer for my family!
