Cream Soup Base

Does anyone have a recipe for cream soup base? I used to have one that I made up, similar to white sauce with a few more ingredients, then I could add any meat or vegetable to it.

We sent Lisa this recipe we had in the archives. If anyone has another recipe that is good for a cream soup base, please send it in. If a question has been answered before we do our best to send you the answers or point you to where it is located on the website:

This was originally published in the Tightwad Gazette.

* 2 cups dry milk

* 1 1/4 cups corn starch (or 2 1/2 cups flour)

* 1/4 cup chicken bouillon powder

* 2 tbs. dried onion flakes

* 1/2 tsp. pepper

* 1 tsp. thyme (optional)

* 1 tsp. basil (optional)

And, when actually making the soup, whatever fresh/frozen/canned veggie wanted (celery, potato, mushroom, etc.)

Mix all the dry ingredients and store in an airtight container. If the mix is made with cornstarch, add 1/3 cup mix to 1 1/4 cups water. If made with flour, add 1/2 cup mix to 1 1/4 cups water. This is the consistency to use for a casserole. If it is for soup, double the water.

Try a "cream" soup base without the cream or the flour. I make a "Creamy" Zucchini Soup with Chicken that uses zucchini cooked in chicken broth then pureed in the blender and added to the soup pot. Delicious!
