HOMEMADE CREAMY SOUP BASE

Saw this on facebook and thought it was worth sharing.

For soup making: Add 1/3 c. dry soup mix with 1 1/4 c. water and stir with whisk in a saucepan. Keep it stirred until it is smooth and creamy. Bring to a boil and continue stirring for approx. 2-3 min or until it thickens to your liking. Set aside and allow to cool. Put in sealed container and place in refrigerator. Should keep at least 1 week. This is equivalent to 1 can of store bought soup.

To make cream of chicken soup: Use 1/3 c. dry mix with 1 1/4 c. chicken broth instead of the water. Fresh chicken broth is always best when available.

To make cream of mushroom soup: Use 1/3 c. dry mix with 1 1/4 c. vegetable broth. Saute 1/3 c. chopped mushrooms until tender. Add to soup as it is thickening. This is equivalent to 1 can of store bought soup.

To make cream of celery soup: Use 1/3 c. dry mix with 1 1/4 c. vegetable broth or water. Chop 1/3 c. celery, with ribs removed, and cook until softened. Add to the soup as it is thickening. This is equivalent to 1 can of store bought soup.

To make cream of potato soup: Use 1/3 c. dry mix with 1 1/4 c. vegetable broth or water. Add 1/3 c. diced and pre-boiled potatoes to the soup as it is thickening. You can also smash the potatoes up before adding to make it even creamier. This is equivalent to 1 can of store bought soup.
