Cream of Soup Mix

NOTE:  I checked a can of Cream of Chicken and basically this is the recipe but it also mentions chicken yeast, onion and celery extract so I think some celery leaves and onion are correct but possibly adding nutritional yeast would be appropriate to this recipe.  The Campbell's seems to be just Cream, Chicken broth, celery, onion and the chicken yeast so very simple!

NOTE THAT several reviews indicate that less of the Thyme and Basil might be required for taste profile.

Cream Soup Mix Recipe

This easy-to-make soup mix is great to keep on hand for those nights you need to whip up a satisfying supper in a hurry. It's a great substitute for canned cream soup in a recipe. Or, add leftover chicken, asparagus or mushrooms, for example, and you'll have a steaming bowl of delicious soup in minutes.—Kay Beard, Vass, North CarolinaTOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 5 min.YIELD:9 servings

2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
(NOTE Add 1 tsp Butter  I saw this in another recipe and it makes sense)

1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
2. For a condensed cream soup substitute: Whisk 1/3 cup mix and 1-1/4 cups water in a small saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cool. Use as a substitute for one 10-3/4-oz.-can condensed cream of chicken, celery or mushroom soup.
3. For 1-1/2 cups soup: Whisk 1/3 cup mix and 1-1/2 cups water in a small saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Yield: 3 cups.
