Condensed Cream of Soup Mix

Submitted by: CindyP on May 9, 2010

A great substitution for those cans of cream soups at the store! Can be used as a gravy, also. There is much less sodium in this recipe than a can and if you use low sodium bouillon, the sodium amount will be even lower! Suzanne did a blog post on it, too!

Servings: 3 cups Mix   Prep Time: 5 min     


2 c powdered milk
3/4 c cornstarch
1/4 c chicken, beef, or vegetable bouillon granules
1 tsp of onion powder or 2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Italian seasoning **
1/2 tsp pepper

** or use your favorite herbs!


Combine all ingredients and blend until mixed. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year.

To substitute for one can of condensed cream soup:

In a 1-quart saucepan or microwave safe bowl, combine 1/3 cup of soup mix and 1 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil and stir, stir, stir. It seems like it will never thicken up, but it all of a sudden it does, about 5 minutes.

Or you can microwave on high for about 5 minutes, stirring every couple minutes.

This recipe makes 3 cups of mix and is equal to 9 cans of soup.
