What can be used in place of cream of mushroom soup?

I have a recipe I like that calls for cream of mushroom soup. But someone I want to make it for is allergic to mushrooms. So is there anything I can use in place of it? It's a Mexican Lasagna. If more of the recipe is needed I can put it up. Thanks.

Cream Soup-Cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup

2 C instant nonfat dry milk
3/4 C cornstarch
1/4 C reduced sodium chicken or beef bouillon
1/2 tsp dried crushed thyme
1/2 tsp dried crushed basil
1/4 tsp pepper

Combine all ingredients in blender. Store in airtight container. Use 1/3 C dry mix and 1 C water mix together in sauce pan. Cook until thickened.

I make mine in the microwave. I mix it up in a bowl, nuke for 1 minute, stir, continue to nuke and stir 1 minute at a time until thickened like reg. soup. I always keep a jar of this stuff in my pantry. I make one batch w/ chicken bouillon for cream of chicken soup and one batch w/ beef bouillon for mushroom soup. This recipe is equivalent to nine cans of soup.

Hope that helps someone,

I would try cream of celery soup, the flavor is very light and isn't overwhelming. I tend to use it more than mushroom, I'm not a big mushroom fan, my grandmother made it for me when I had strep throat at age 7 and I got sick...bad memory.

Garlicky Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

While we were roasting these fingerling potatoes, our neighbour came over and said to us if she was invited for dinner with us, because it smelled so good :-) The aroma from roasting garlic and rosemary makes everyone who smells it wants to try it. If you don't have fingerling potatoes, you can use russet potatoes, and cut into even thickness wedges or strips. It will be still delicious!
