Recipe of the Week: Gluten-Free Condensed "Cream of Anything" Soup

This recipe is fabulous!  It's great for those who are gluten-free, dairy-free, want a healthier alternative, or didn't pick up a can of condensed "cream of whatever" soup for their yummy casserole dish.  I've tried different gluten-free condensed cream of mushroom soups and I didn't like them.  They didn't taste like Campbell's, so I was excited to try this recipe and am very happy to report that it tastes good!  Plus one recipe is equal to one can of soup.  So easy!  I found it in the comments section of this blog post.


 

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cold milk (works with dairy-free milk according to my mom)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter (can use margarine)
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper

Directions:
  1. In a small saucepan, whisk milk and cornstarch till well blended.
  2. Stir in butter, bouillon, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat to a boil, stirring frequently. Simmer on low for one minute more to thicken.
  4. Use in recipes to replace one can of cream of anything soup.
