Cream of anything...

You guys, I just came across this recipe today and just about died. DIED. What?! I have been wthout my cream of anything for a long time... this just makes me giddy as a school girl. Original recipe found on food.com. But a quick search on the internets will turn up several! I didn't realize people had figured this out... WOO HOO!

Now, I was skeptic at first, but after trying a few of the recipes I've decided this one is the winner!


  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • 3⁄4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot 
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper

Mix and store in a glass jar until needed.

To make cream of beef:. Add 2/3 cup mix to 1 cup beef broth.

To make cream of chicken:. Add 2/3 cup mix to 1 cup chicken broth.

To make cream of vegetable: Add 2/3 cup mix to 1 cup vegetable broth.

To make cream of Mushroom: Add 2/3 cup to broth of choice and add dried or sliced mushrooms

You guys... PERFECTION! And best of all, you can literally make cream of anything this way!

Sounds great! Going to try these. I have tried to make cream of mushroom often since it seems every canned variety has MSG. Only one time did it come out great. It never occurred to me to try powdered milk! Thanks for this!!
