Cooking Thursday~~Cream of....soup

Now that we are changing our lifestyle here and eating better.  I've been searching for recipes that will help us in that journey without sacrificing taste.  Not only is this fat free but also lower in sodium.  This is just one of these recipes I want to share.  I know many have already seen this recipe.

Cream of...soup

2 cups powdered milk
3/4 cups cornstarch
1/4 cups chicken, beef, bouillon granules (I just crushed the cubes)
2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black or white pepper

Combine all ingredients and blend until mixed. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. This recipe makes 3 cups and is enough for 9 cans of soup.

To substitute for one can of condensed cream soup:
In a 1-quart saucepan combine 1/3 cup of soup mix
and 1 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil stirring

You can make this into many different types of soups.  Broccoli, potato, vegetable or whatever you can come up with.  I love this soup mix.  We keep it on hand all the time now.
