    Re: Make your own

    I don't use mixes very much, even the make your own type. I usually start from scratch. Mixes seem limiting for me and I don't have enough room to store special mixes in addition to the basics.

    Re: Make your own

     I would have to say the cream of soup mix recipe that I found on this website. I tweaked it a bit so I could eat it. The recipe calls for powdered bouillon granules, I can't eat this because they all contain MSG. Instead I use celery salt, along with the other spices and a pinch of salt. Then after it's fixed up I add a gel bouillon I found that I can eat. This is my tweaked recipe

    2 c. instant milk  3/4 c. cornstarch  1 tsp. onion powder 1/2 tsp. thyme 1/2 tsp. basil 1/4 tsp. pepper

     Mix well and store in an airtight container.  (I usually make at least double because I use this so much.)

    Add 2/3 c. of mix to 2 c. of water in large microwavable bowl.  Stir well with whisk.  Microwave on high 3 minutes, stir again with whisk.  Microwave an additional 2-3 minutes until thick.  Use in place of canned soup in a recipe. You can add whatever veggies or meat for a cream of soup. If I'm making chicken or beef flavored I'll add the gel bouillon after the microwaveing.

    Several years ago I made a recipe for oatmeal cookie mix. We didn't like it. I recycled it into a topping for apple crisp.Inflation fighter
