What can be used in place of cream of mushroom soup?
Yo Mamma over 8 years ago
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.
