Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter until foaming. Add mushrooms and cook until they have released most of their liquid, about 5 to 7 minutes. 
  • Stir in chicken broth, onion powder, and garlic powder and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, whisk together milk and flour.
  • Stir in milk mixture and cook until soup has thickened, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes

  1. Mushrooms: I used common white button mushrooms because they are inexpensive and readily available, but you can use any mushrooms you like.
  2. Chicken broth: Homemade chicken broth is king, but store-bought or broth made from Better than Bouillon paste is good too.
  3. Yield: This recipe makes 2 cups of condensed soup, enough to replace a standard can from the store. Or, add 2 cups water to this full recipe to make 2 servings of soup, 2 cups each (stir over medium heat until heated through).
  4. Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  5. Freezing: Let the soup cool completely, then portion it out into freezer-safe containers. Leave about an inch at the top for expansion. When you thaw it out, give it a good whisk to blend everything up again.
  6. Canning: Unfortunately, this recipe isn’t a good candidate for home canning. But it freezes well, which is the next best thing.
