Cream Soup Recipes

May 1, 2011
Regular canned cream soups are usually full of sodium and fat and are expensive. So many casserole recipes call for a can of creamed something and just don't taste quite the same without it. All of my bunch has to watch out for the salt intake, so we really like this recipe.


  • 2 cups non-fat dry milk powder (instant powdered milk)
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 Tbsp. dry onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. basil flakes
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. dry celery flakes
  • If you have dried mushrooms to add when cooking the soup that would be good.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Store in a quart sized container with a lid. Can be kept for several months.

To cook: Combine 1/3 cup of the mix and 1 and 1/4 cup of water in a saucepan. Over a medium heat, stir well until it comes to a boil and boil for one minute while continuing to stir.

It is now ready to use in any recipe that calls for a can of cream of something soup. I use it in all my regular casserole recipes. It tastes pretty good as a "Cup of Soup" also.

This is a great soup for Christmas Eve. Very good, cheesy soup. Love the veggies in this, too.

Wish my dad was still alive today so I could make this for him! He loved oysters!

Very creamy with lots of flavor and easy to do. Mash cooked vegetables into small pieces. Bring all ingredients, except cream, to a boil. Stir in cream and heat through.

I cook only for myself, and try to find economical, but tasty, choices to enjoy. Now that the weather is cold, I especially like soups. Here's a different take on an old stand-by, Chicken Noodle:

Hi, fortunately, this sounds great but I am a 52 year old man and just learning to cook. Are the measurements in teaspoons or tablespoons? And is the egg fried hard or boiled? Thanks hope to make it this week and surprise my wife with it.

Editor's Note: Generally T. stands for Tablespoon and t. stands for teaspoon. I'm sure it is a hard boiled egg, like you would use for egg salad or deviled eggs. Good luck and be sure to post your results and your wife's reaction.

Hi Sue, I found this recipe by Jordanna Novak on -- it has a 4.5 star rating and people really seem to like it :-)

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

3 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup uncooked wild rice
8 slices bacon
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups half-and-half cream
1 1/2 cups cooked, diced turkey meat
2 tablespoons dry sherry

In a large pot over medium heat, combine chicken broth, water, green onions and wild rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Allow to cool and then crumble. Set aside.
When rice is tender, melt the margarine in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper all at once. Cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in half-and-half and cook until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir half-and-half mixture into rice mixture. Stir in bacon, turkey and sherry. Heat through and serve.
