Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

Making Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup is so easy to make from scratch with simple ingredients. In a matter of minutes, you'll match the exact consistency of a can, but with much better flavor and no processed ingredients!


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces white button mushrooms, diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon pepper


  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan until it begins to foam. This allows the water in the butter to cook off which will create a smoother consistency.
  • Add the diced mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes, until liquid is mostly reduced. Add the flour and cook for an additional 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the chicken broth and stir to combine. Slowly mix in the half and half until combined, then the seasonings. Whisk continuously and bring to a gentle boil. Stir continuously while it bubbles for about 4 minutes, it will thicken and reduce. Remove from heat.
  • It will continue to thicken upon standing.


  • This recipe makes 2 cups, (16 oz). If you double this recipe, it will give you exactly 3 (10.5 oz) cans.

  • Baby Bella or Shiitake mushrooms may also be used.

  • You can freeze these in can-sized portions, these Tupperware containers perfectly fit 1 "can" of soup so you can easily pull them from the freezer for cooking.

  • To turn this into a broth for soup: Add about 1/2 cup of milk for every 1 cup of condensed. This tastes great with sauteed celery, carrots, chicken, and even cooked rice!
