Oops! Pressed this awesome recipe from Dinner of Herbs to the wrong blog! Let me try that again, and hope you enjoy it. As for the mushroom soup substitute, I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest the following, since you don’t need that much.
Cream of Mushroom Soup Substitute for Chicken and Rice Recipe
1 tbsp mushrooms cut up
1 tsp chopped onion
1 tsp butter
1 tbsp cream
1/2 tsp flour, optional
salt and pepper to taste
In a tiny sauté pan, melt the butter over medium to medium-high heat and cook the onions for one minute, then add the mushrooms and cook for a minute or two, until tender. Add the cream and the salt and pepper (a dash or two apiece), and keep stirring. If you want it a little thicker, add the flour and stir over medium heat until it’s the consistency you want.
This only makes a tiny bit, but may be easier than opening a can of soup for that one tablespoon. One spoon for the recipe, one for your happy mouth. What do you think? Should I scale this up for a full serving? Cream of Mushroom Soup For One? Yeah, I definitely will.
