I swiped this from the Food networks low carb and loving it, green bean casserole recipe. Isolating the parts that recreate the Consensed cream of mushroom soup part and fiddled a bit with it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion, mushrooms, salt, garlic, and pepper and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth and thyme and cook until almost all the liquid is evaporated, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add the sour cream, and toss to combine.

Awesome! I'm looking for healthier alternatives so I thought I'd try this in place of the canned soup. As usual, anything you make from scratch tastes 100% better. Half way through cooking the mushrooms & onions, I noticed a pleasing fragrance that filled the kitchen. I said to my husband, "This smells SO good!" It took me about 15 minutes to reduce the liquid, however. When the liquid was reduced, I then pureed it in the food processor so it resembled the canned stuff.

I was making a dinner and realized that I was out of my canned Cream of Mushroom and this saved the day! It was so good and so easy I don't know if I will go back to my Campbell's...
Thanks for a great recipe that saved me in a pinch!

Wow! This recipe worked great. I used it in my beef stew recipe when I noticed that I was out of the canned stuff. This is so much fresher tasting and I will use it whenever I can. Thanks for posting!
