If you prefer not to use cream soups in recipes that call for undiluted “cream of” soups, try this substitution instead. Another delicious option is Cream of Something Soup which requires just a few minutes of cooking but is a great substitute as well.
Cream Soup Substitution
- 2 T. butter
- 2 T. flour
- 1 c. milk
- Salt & Pepper to taste or other spices/vegetables
for flavor (mushrooms, celery, chicken bouillon, etc.)
Mix equal parts of butter & flour, stirring into a paste. Freeze in 1 T. balls or in the cubes of an ice tray. To make quick white sauce, simmer 2- T. cubes of the frozen butter & flour mixture w/ milk, then salt& pepper to taste.
