Cream of "Something" Canned Soup Substitute

This is a go-to recipe in my kitchen. I got the recipe from my homeschool coop’s cookbook. I use it for any recipe that calls for cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup. It is a snap to through together and only takes minutes.


1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup flour
2 cups chicken broth, milk or water
optional flavorings: salt, seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, (butter sauteed fresh mushrooms or canned ones for cream of mushroom)

Heat oil over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour and cook until bubbling about 1 min. Whisk in the liquid of choice (for cream of mushroom I use half milk/half water) and stir until well blended and thick to desired consistency. Add flavorings of choice and sauteed mushrooms if going for cream of mushroom. When adding the mushrooms I use my immersion blender to chop them finely in the soup.
