  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients; cover and process until vegetable flakes are finely chopped. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year.


  • Editor's Note: Use as a substitute for half a 10-3/4-ounce can of condensed cream of chicken, mushroom or celery soup. For half of a can of soup, in a microwave-safe dish, whisk together 2/3 cup water and 3 tablespoons soup mix. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 to 2-1/2 minutes, whisking occasionally. For mushroom soup, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup sauteed sliced mushrooms. For celery soup, add 1/8 teaspoon celery salt or one sauteed sliced or chopped celery rib.

This is awesome! It also makes the perfect amount to fit into a large mason jar. I tied it up with a ribbon and a note with how to use it and gave it to my mother. She can't really cook for hers...

I made this using a full teaspoon of garlic powder and added a teaspoon of poultry seasoning so it would taste more like cream of chicken. Couldn't find any vegetable flakes but will probably a...

I LOVE the idea of this! I have been looking for a soup mix that I could have on hand w/o msg and other chemicals. I just need to figure out where to get dried vegetables! I'll follow up when ...

I really liked the idea of making a homemade version of the cream of __ soups. I've used this to just add into other soups or chowders and it's delicious as it thickens. Thank you for this rec...
