There are many times when we cannot find exactly what we want here in the markets. Times when we can find it...but it is outrageously expensive because it is imported. And times when it was available a month ago but not now. Those are the times when I turn to my cookbooks or get online to find a substitute. As I was looking through recipes that I have saved on Pinterest I found one that will come in handy for sure.
Cream of "Something" Soup Mix
|photo from One Orange Giraffe|
1 cup non-fat dried milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup bouillon, your choice of flavor (if you have cubes you have to smash them up)
4 Tablespoons freeze dried minced onions
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme or parsley
1 teaspoon pepper
For the equivalent of one can of condensed cream soup,
mix 1/3 cup dry mix with 1 1/4 cup water.
Cook until thick.
I have most of these ingredients on hand so all I need to do is run to the store for some bouillon and I can make a batch today. If it works it will be a money saver for sure! If you have recipes for other dried mixes just let me know...I would love to give them a try.
