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! ;)

    For anyone with an allergy to gluten or dairy this is a fantastic recipe. The ingredients are most likely ones you have on hand (except maybe the “of” ingredient- mushroom, chicken, celery, etc) and it takes such a small amount of time to make it. I’ve been trying to cut back on processed foods and most importantly my sodium intake. When my husband was going through elimination diet testing for gluten I needed to find an alternative anyway so I set out to make my own cream soups. I tried multiple recipes and kept coming back to this one. There is sort of a bland taste, which I actually appreciate so I can add salt to my food, but adding seasonings such as garlic and some herbs (to taste) really helps. I typically with quadruple the recipe and put in to wide mouth pint jars to freeze. It freezes amazingly well and can be quickly thawed in the microwave. Better yet just run it under hot water to loosen from the sides of jar, then slowly warm (stirring often) on the stove. However, the easiest way is to just thaw it for a day or 2 in the fridge. Time to get cooking. No more sodium filled soups- here’s to a healthier lifestyle (**cheaper too!!!!!)

    I'm doing a happy dance over this! Campbell's discontinued Creamy Poblano & Queso soup (GRRRR!) and I was able to twiddle & tweak this to make a great and even better substitute. I added chopped Hatch chiles, green chile powder (from Amazon), garlic and onion powders, and a healthy dose of cumin. Finished with a good handful of shredded co-jack. ...and the angels sang! One other thing, I can't come up with a reason you can't freeze this. Maybe it'll get a bit grainy, but if you're putting it in a casserole or something it wouldn't make a difference. The cans measure out to 1 1/3 cup each. Freezer space is at a premium around here, so putting it in pint freezer bags makes sense.

    Wonderful. I use cream of onion soup all the time, and can no longer find it in the stores. I prefer home made anyways, so this will be fantastic. Thank you so much!!

    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.

    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.
