Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup


cream of mushroom soup

Have you been trying your best to kick the processed foods out of your house?  Are you a Southerner that likes your “cream of something” soup?  I mean come on, there are about a gazillion recipes now days that call for at least one can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken Soup.

Have you read the label?  Have you been avoiding it on purpose? :) Don’t go hide under your bed!  I confess!  I confess!  I was also hanging on to my beloved cream of something soups!  I had figured out how to make cream of chicken soup but cream of mushroom soup was blowing my mind!  I mean, I just knew it had to be impossible to mimic that deliciousness!

Well, I am about to show you the magic behind the curtain and you are going to be so surprised!  It is REALLY simple!  And, what is better, it only takes a couple of ingredients you probably have on hand.  Are you as excited as me!?  You can finally kick that can to the curb!  Processed foods be gone!  Real food tastes good and is good for you!

Do you remember the post I did about making Swedish meatballs a LONG time ago?  This recipe is one my mom used to make when I was a kid.  It is one of my favorite comfort food dishes.  I was so excited to remake this recipe.  It once called for a can of cream of mushroom soup…now I use my homemade version and it is EVEN BETTER!  Not only is it better tasting…it doesn’t have all those yucky fake foods in it.  REAL, Wholesome food tastes good and doesn’t have to be difficult.

Read my redo post here. You’ll be so glad you did!

What other old standbys/family favorites would you love to see remade?

  1. I didn’t see flour listed in the ingredients, How much flour do you add? Thanks

      Karen,
      Thanks for catching this mistake and saving lots of people trouble!
      I edited the recipe just now to add the flour – which is 2 Tbsp.
      Thanks!!

  2. My son has a soy allergy so I am always looking for ways to still eat our normal food but without the add ons and extra unneeded stuff so I cant wait to try this recipe but does this recipe equal one can of soup

    • Denisesawyer says:

      It makes a little more than one can would be once it is diluted as directed on the can. I have played around with halving the recipe or making 3/4 a recipe to make it similar to what I need in casserole recipes. Once you make it once and see how much it makes you’ll have a better idea how to use it. :)

  3. Thanks for posting this recipe; I have been for a number of years wanting to make Mother’s Chicken Mushroom dish, which calls for a can of Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup — but not wanting to buy that product due to the ingredient list. Happy to say I tried this recipe, with a couple minor changes, and added it to the chicken recipe — and while not identical, it was close enough for memory!

    • Denisesawyer says:

      YAY! Thanks for taking the time to write back about the recipe! So glad it worked out for you and that you were able to remake a family recipe! I love that. So many of our mother’s recipes call for canned soup {it was HUGE back then} so I hope this recipe helps other remake old family recipe and recreates some memories. :)
