- I know exactly what is going into the mix.
- The mix is fat-free! AND gluten free if you make sure your bouillon is GF (which doesn't matter for me, but does for some of my friends)
- I recycle, and have you ever tried rinsing a can of cream of whatever soup? Gross.
- Cans are expensive. And heavy. And take up room. This mix fits in a container that I can reuse and takes up considerably less room.
- It's DELICIOUS.
1 c non-fat dried milk
3/4 c cornstarch
1/4 c bouillon (if you have cubes you have to smash them up...I have powdered Knorr bouillon)
4 T freeze dried minced onions (those are the dried minced onions that you find in the spice aisle)
2 t Italian seasoning
1 t pepper
For the equivalent of one can of condensed cream soup, mix 1/3 cup dry mix with 1 1/4 cup water. Cook until thick then add to whatever recipe you're making.
As you see, I make a container that is more than one recipe worth. The container I use holds about 3x the recipe, but I usually double it so I have room to shake it up. Also, you can see that I wrote the recipe and the ratio for cooking it on the sides of the container! I keep this in the cupboard.
