Remake of old favorite

Since I am no longer purchasing a previous pantry staple, cream of mushroom soup, I have had to find an alternative and have come across a mighty tasty homemade version using healthy ingredients without unnecessary additives. Here is my version:

 Condensed Creamed Soup (makes the equivalent of 2 cans condensed soup)

 Basic Sauce Base:

 2 tbls butter

2 tbls coconut oil (or olive oil) I just didn’t want to heat my olive oil so chose the coconut oil

 1/4 c white whole wheat flour

1 tsp sea salt

 2 cups whole milk

 Heat butter and oil. Add flour and stir until well incorporated. Add milk and stir until thickened. Use in any recipe calling for condensed soup.

VARIATIONS:

 Cream of Mushroom Soup: saute in butter/oil  – 12 chopped fresh mushrooms and 1/2 cup chopped onion until softened.

 Cream of Chicken: add 1 tsp chicken base (a paste with no MSG), 1 cup milk, 1 cup chicken stock, chopped cooked chicken (optional)

 Cream of Celery: substitute celery in place of mushrooms, 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup milk
