Condensed Cream Soup Recipe – No MSG

This homemade condensed cream soup recipe is a great tasting, easy to make alternative to canned soup. You can make all your recipes that call for canned cream soups without the MSG!
 
There are so many recipes out there that call for canned creamed soups. Have you looked at the ingredients in canned soup? One of the things I try to avoid when buying food is MSG, and most canned soups are loaded with this stuff. Well, it’s in a ton of processed foods.

 

What is MSG?

MSG, also known as monosodium glutamate, is a common ingredient and food additive used to boost the flavor of processed, canned and frozen foods. Why is it bad for you? You can read more about that here.

Back to the recipe! It’s super easy to make and doesn’t alter the flavor of recipes at all that call for canned soup. I am going to give you the cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, cream of celery, AND cream of tomato soup recipes.

I will list the ingredients for the cream soup base; which will be the same for all the recipes, then you can switch out the other ingredients for the different kinds of soups.

Cream soup base Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk or stock ( Chicken, veggie or even powdered milk can be used).

If making stock from bouillon or soup base, 1 tsp. per cup of liquid (McCormick Chicken and Beef Base from Costco doesn’t have MSG)

If you want to make a quadruple batch and freeze (which I like to do), here are the measurements:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cups liquid
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt

Instructions:

  • Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add flour, stir with wire whisk until well combined.
  • Stir in salt and liquid and whisk until thickened and smooth. (If you need it thicker or thinner for your recipe, adjust liquid amount)
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Cream of Chicken Soup Base

This makes a really good chicken gravy  as well!!!

  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder instead regular salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. instant chicken bouillon granules or chicken base
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cooked chicken (optional)

Cream of mushroom soup ingredients

  • 1 cup beef beef bouillon or 1 tsp beef base and 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms

Cream of celery soup

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery, saute with the butter

Tomato soup

  • 1 cup tomato juice instead of water or milk (For cream of tomato soup, add 1/2 cup tomato juice and 1/2 cup milk).

 

This isn’t quite as fast as opening a can, but when you can avoid MSG, it’s worth it!

I hope you’ll give it a whirl in your favorite recipes.
