I am offering you cream soup recipes that can be used in place of condensed cream soup in recipes.
My condensed soup substitute recipe makes an excellent substitute for condensed cream of mushroom, cream of chicken or cream of celery soup in casseroles.
You know what the best part is? You know exactly what's in it. No hidden chemicals or preservatives. Who knows what's in that can they sell at the grocery store (or any canned food for that matter).

1/8 tsp black pepper
dash of paprika
1-1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup flour
