Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup Substitute
photo by amycardiffmorris
- Ready In:
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 6 button mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced (this seems to me to be about what it looks like from the can, you can always add more or less as you)
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 cup broth (I use chicken but the recipe I based this on the first time suggested beef, it works well with real ) or 1/2 cup bouillon (I use chicken but the recipe I based this on the first time suggested beef, it works well with real )
- 1⁄2 cup milk (I have never done this with skim, it works well with 1.5% and whole milk)
- salt and pepper
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
- Saute mushrooms until cooked through.
- Stir in flour a little at a time until a paste is formed and remove from heat.
- Add broth and milk a little at a time, stirring to keep mixture smooth.
- Return to the heat and bring sauce to a gentle boil, stirring constantly until sauce thickens.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. I find it usually doesn't need salt and only a couple of dashes of pepper.

<p>Thanks in advance if you are making any of my recipes, and I hope that you like them as I do. <br /> <br />I grew up in the US, but I have spent most of the last few years in Europe now live in Germany, with my German husband. Much of the time that I have lived in Europe, I have lived in international student housing so I have lived with and cooked with people from all over world. I have also have had to learn to improvise a bit because it isn't always easy to get the foods I miss from the US here. <br /> <br />My husband is a good cook and likes to cook when he has time, but he quite often makes what he knows, mainly German food. So I am the one feeding him strange things. :D My husband has recently taken up hunting so I am having to learn how to cook game: wild boar, deer, hares and geese are the most common things hunted here. It isn't easy to find things for wild boar so I am trying to publish ones that I find that we really liked. <br /> <br />I like Recipezaar because I can easily find recipes for whatever I am in the mood, or whatever I happen to have laying around when I am too lazy to walk to the supermarket. :) I like trading tips with the people at the Asian and the German/Benelux forums, I lurk there mostly, but post when I have questions or think that I can help. <br /> <br />My reviews are mainly 4 or 5 stars because I won't try anything that I don't think that I will like. 5 stars is it was great, will make again, only very minor changes were made, if any. 4 stars is it was very good, will probably make again, made some changes to adjust to my taste. 3 stars is it was okay, probably won't make again but I didn't really mind eating it. I haven't had anything here that I thought was lower than that, which is good with how picky I am. I'll try most new things if it sounds good, but I am not afraid to say if I don't like it. I quite often make my own recipes out of some of the ones I find here, and don't post recipe reviews if I radically changed it.</p>
