Soup Mix

Here’s a handy hint for you.

I recently tried a recipe in my crock-pot (a sausage and mushroom casserole – yummy) and it called for a packet of mushroom soup. You know the ones, they are a small sealed packet and you empty the contents into a pot and add water and boil.

Well, the problem with those packet soups is they are too full of artificial additives for my liking so here is what we (Scarecrow and me) do:

1 bag of dried mushrooms (about 15-20 grams)
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 teaspoon vegetable stock powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Mortar and pestle

Take your dried mushroom (we get ours when they are on the specials rack at the supermarket and dry them into small zip lock bags and store them for months) and use your mortar and pestle to make a fine (fine-ish) powder.

Bung in everything else and mix.

Use as a dried soup in the recipe that needs it.

I haven’t tried it but it would appear to make a nice soup if just used as a soup mix. If you do that, let me know how it went.

Anyway, it worked well in my casserole

Regards, Doc ;-)
