This is a recipe explaining how to make Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup - way better tasting and better for you than the canned soup!
Serves: 1 "can"
  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 small Shallot, minced {about a quarter cup}
  • ½ cup minced Crimini Mushroom
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Vegetable Broth
  • ½ cup Whole Milk
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt or Kosher Salt {go easy so you don't over salt when adding to the recipe}
  • 2 pinches Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  1. In a 10 inch skillet melt the three tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
  2. Once melted add in the minced shallot, stir to coat in the butter and sauté until just about soft {3-5 minutes}.
  3. Add in the minced crimini mushrooms, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with the 2-1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour and let the flour cook for a minute or two (this gets the flour taste out).
  5. Whisk in the whole milk and vegetable broth until smooth.
  6. Bring to a simmer and cook until it has thickened {about 5-8 minutes}.
  7. Use as a substitute in any recipe calling for canned cream of mushroom soup!
