Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

One of the things that really launched me into cooking was my desire to make store-bought items from scratch. I was realizing that certain processed foods were not nourishing, but I didn’t want to give up my favorite pre-packaged foods because they contained unhealthy ingredients.

Canned condensed cream of mushroom soup was one of those things I thought couldn’t be replicated at home. I just had a mental road block! But I wanted to make my favorite cheesy potato casserole (I’ll share the recipe for that one day) more tasty and healthy, so I gave it a try. It was much easier than I anticipated!

You can go get the recipe and step-by-step photos on the Pioneer Woman’s blog HERE.

Can i use vegetable broth instead of chicken Broth. I do not want my mushroom soup to taste like chicken soup. I usually use a condensed Cream of mushroom soup for cooking but I want to make my own to use in place Of the canned. Please let me know by e-mailing me at [email protected]

Yes, you can definitely use vegetable broth or beef broth instead. I don't notice it tasting like chicken soup, but there's no harm in using the other broths. :)

Just made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent! I used a combination of cremini, oyster and shiitake mushrooms. Saved two 8 oz portions of condensed soup for later and made the remaining 3/4 cup for dinner. Don't think I'll be buying this from the store ever again!
