"After following the ongoing debate over canned soups- I realized that I couldn't comment because I have never made any casserole type dishes involving cream of mushroom soup because they are all dairy and for religious reasons, we don't mix meat and milk. So I created this substitute, which is really authentic... I will weigh in on the debate after tonight's dinner!"

"Excellent! I used this as a vegan cream of mushroom soup for green bean casserole, and let me tell ya, this is da' bomb! Very delicious indeed, and was so perfect in all ways. I used *Silk* organic unsweetened milk. Thickened perfectly, and was so delicious, people were hoping I made extra soup. No. Sad faces abounded. Thank you! Made for Thanksgiving 2009"
"My son is allergic to dairy and soy - what a great recipe this is! I used shortening instead of margarine because it's hard to find a completely dairy-free one in my area. Rice milk worked well, although I used some corn starch in place of one of the T of flour, because I thought that might thicken the thin rice milk better. It did thicken it - no idea if it would have been OK anyway. I doubled the mushrooms and onions and added a very finely minced spicy pepper. It was so good we were tempted to just eat it straight, but I did forge ahead and put it in the tuna casserole. It was actually the best tuna casserole ever. I think we'll keep using this even if he outgrows his allergy!"
"Fantastic! Used it for a chicken and stuffing casserole. I used about 1/4 cup more milk though so I'd have enough and it still came out tasting great!"
"Perfect! I decided to go kosher myself a year ago, and while visiting my mom, realized that I couldn't eat tater tot casserole anymore (I have gluten-intolerance, so I can't use fake meat). Thank you for this!"
"Oh, my goodness!! This was an amazing soup. I sub'd cornflour ( 1 1/2 Tbsps) for the reg. flour to make it gluten free and rice milk for the soy milk. No dairy, no gluten, no soy, but so yummm! Thanks for such a great post :)"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you...one of the hardest parts about going kosher is the fact that we loved so many of the dishes that used the cream of mushroom soup...my kids and I were so happy with this substitute and you helped me convince my husband a little more that we can keep kosher and not give up the things we like. Thank you so much for posting this."
"Don't forget to add the mushrooms back in at the end! Also, I used a bit less pepper. I also made a batch of this with a little extra soy milk to make a wonderful mushroom gravy!"
"Thank you! My father is on a low salt diet and lactose intolerant. I simply omitted the added salt and the end product was better than the canned version. I've already adapted by using celery and more onion to make a variety of cream of __ soups. Tonight we're having baked pork steaks in gravy using this soup recipe."
"I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to eat a green bean casserole again!!! My green bean casserole tasted almost dead on like the dairy filled original! I did make a couple of changes - I add a little minced garlic in with the mushrooms and use onion powder instead of minced onion. I also use less soymilk - between 3/4 and 1 cup - it seems to be a more accurate consistency that way. Thanks a million!"
"Awesome! I was in a pinch tonight when making turkey tetrazzini. I was sure I had the cream of mushroom soup at home already. Well, I didn't. So I had to figure out what I could substitute. I didn't use the dairy-free items but I sure did love the end product! I would eat it as a soup by itself. It was yummy! And I feel much better about this version than the canned version. Thanks!!"
"Wow! I would have never figured this out on my own. Lol This really works great. I'll use this recipe in multiple ways with variations of seasonings and such. I've been looking for substitutes for all dairy products for quite a while. This is the first one I have found for cream of any type of soup. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"Wow, I like this better than what comes in a can! So simple to make too. I used canned sliced mushrooms, drained them, put them in the pan and choppped them up. I added a dash of garlic salt to give a little extra flavor. THANK YOU FOR POSTING!"
"This is a great substitute and I'm glad to have it in my arsenal! I used double the mushrooms, added a small clove of garlic, and tweaked the salt and onion levels a bit. I have used this recipe to make a vegetarian tater tot casserole, as well as green bean casserole - and got delightful results. Thank you for this recipe!"
"Instead of mushroom, I used garlic and I also used butter and spelt flour. I used it in a turkey-rice-mozza casserole I threw together... it was absolutely delish!"
"This was surprisingly good! I used rice milk instead of soy, so it was a tad sweet... i added an extra 1/2 tsp of salt, and a clove of garlic. Fabulous! "
