This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I use a ridiculous amount of cream soups in my cooking and I’m always wishing I knew how to make them myself to cut back on our grocery bill and the amount of sodium they add to our diet. Thank you so much for sharing!!

What if the recipe calls for one can of soup? That’s about 11oz. That’s 1 1/4 cup liquid, so I would have to use 1 2/3 cup of this stuff…?

I am wondering if the 1/3c mix to 1/4 c water is correct. I did this tonight and ended up with a paste so thick I couldn’t whisk it.

Hi, just thought I’d drop a note letting you know the ratio of mix to water is 1/3 cup mix to 1 1/4 cups of liquid…. No one wants glue, hehe
