Ingredients

How to make it

  • In small saucepan, put butter and the "of" ingredient and cook until soft, not just tender.(if using chicken, just make sure it's cooked through)
  • Add flour and stir together. It will be thick and gooey, and that's okay.
  • Slowly add stock while stirring or whisking to avoid lumps.
  • Bring to a boil and cook a few minutes until thickened.(if seems too thick, you can add a tsp or so more broth, just don't forget, you've still got milk to add :)
  • Add milk and salt and pepper and stir until combined and thick. Taste to know your seasonings prior to using it in a recipe so you can adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  • ***the main photo is cream of celery using veggie stock, and the other is mushroom using chicken stock. Please remember, you can combine ingredients to make blend, or add garlic, etc, to make a cream of mushroom with garlic, etc. Just play around and make it to suit your needs and taste!**
  • PS Please note, this is a CONDENSED version of the soup...it's meant to be thick and not intended to eat straight! ;)

    What type of mushrooms do you use? For the cream of chicken do you shred and finely chop cooked chicken? Do they freeze well? Thanks in advance, I'm trying to get away from the canned versions.
    What could you do to be able to eat it straight?

    I have been meaning to make this for SO LONG!!! So glad I finally did and I'm not sure if I will ever go back to the canned stuff!! I made a cream of broccoli with garlic. I also used 1% milk which worked just fine. I made this to use in Creamy Ham And Broccoli Pasta So easy and is such a healthier way to get your cream of soups into meals!

    I made "Cream of Broccoli" last night for a tuna casserole.. Was pretty good, but I added Garic powder and onion powder to give it a little extra flavor-- YUM! Also used more than 1/4 cup of broccoli... Love broccoli!!

    I FINALLY made this last night when I wanted a sauce for sauteed chicken breasts. My "of" ingredients were onion & celery. All I can say is "wow" and thank you very much, Keni!
    This will be a staple here.

    Thanks for this recipe, Keni! I made a batch using celery to use in a recipe and it turned out well. I like being able to control the sodium, among other things.

    I do this too. I love to make a cream soup using leftover asparagus. So yummy!

    Oh man.....this recipe was just meant for me. I do actually enjoy the Campbell's soups and have a few recipes that call for them but I hate the high sodium and preservatives in them. Detroit Tokyo copied the link to your recipe in "Our Daily Dinner" Group today. Am I pleased! Thanks Keni. This is most excellent.

    You came through again!! This is so great..you have no idea! I have a nasty allergy to MSG so canned soup is the enemy for me. I used this recipe to put into a casserole last night. So happy I can finally make comfort foods again without the rapid heart rate! I would give this 10 stars if I could!

    Made it today using fresh mushrooms for a hotdish. I used King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour and skim milk. Turned out beautifully, and was probably the healthiest cream of mushroom soup that we've ever eaten. Thanks Keni!! I will be making this again.
