- 2 Cups powdered mild

To substitute for 1 can of cream of whatever soup, combine 1/3 Cup dry mix with 1 + 1/4 Cups cold water. Heat and stir until it thickens. Then use as you would the canned soup.
When a recipe I'm making calls for a can of Cream of "Whatever" soup, I don't bother with the Whatever part. I just make the soup (above) and add it to my recipe. But , if you'd like to add the "Whatever" to your creamed soup, here are some suggestions:
Mushroom: add ½ cup finely chopped mushrooms.
Celery: add ½ cup minced celery.
Potato: add 1 cup cooked diced potatoes.
Chicken: add ½ cup cooked chicken.
Vegetable: add 3/4 cup cooked vegetables.
Broccoli: add 1 cup cooked chopped broccoli.
