Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup is an easy and tasty alternative to the canned stuff.

Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup


This is yet another recipe I’ve had planned for awhile. It’s so nice to be knocking the list down little by little. I have 100 post titles in my drafts along with another few dozen scribbled down in a couple of different places.

Back to this post, I shared my Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup a few months ago. I’ve been trying more and more homemade versions of common convenience food. The main reason is they are things I have a tendency to forget to pick up while at the grocery store. Having a way to make them at home saves time and money because I don’t have to make another trip to the store.

While not as easy as popping open a can because you have to chop and saute mushrooms, this is still fairly easy to make. In fact, chopping and cooking the mushrooms is the most difficult part. After that, all you have to do is add some beef or vegetable broth, a few seasonings, and a milk and flour slurry to thicken it all up.
