What a great recipe find! I like the light flavor of the generic soup, which allows you to flavor it to match the recipe you need it in. I sauted chopped mushrooms and added to the mix for a great cream of mushroom base. I then used it as a cover for baked pork chops - good stuff!!

What a great resource! This gives us far more versatility in the kitchen than having to shop for or stock each indifidual soup variation. Shelf-stable make-your-own stuff is a lifeline for budget-conscious cooks. Thanks!

This is fantastic!!! It is nice to find an alternative to the red and white can that is not only gluten free, but frugal to boot!!! I always appreciate recipes that take a commercial product full of preservatives and what=nots and break it down to it simplest form!
