Y’all, you will not believe how long I have been wanting to post this recipe! 

You know that my story goes back to my Mom, and her lack of cooking ability as well as the fact that it was the time when TV dinners we uber popular, boxed meals, and the dreaded condensed cream of _________ soup that appeared in every casserole known to mankind.

But, as a kid, I LOVED them. I would make a can of the cream of mushroom soup, with crackers, and that was a meal.

My Mom even put a can of cream of mushroom soup in our mac and cheese (blue box of course) 😖 Now that idea just makes me shudder!

But, what are you supposed to do when a recipe you love calls for a can of it?

Nobody wants to take a bunch more time working on a homemade sauce right?

I mean that is why we are using a can to begin with. We want tasty, but don’t have a ton of time to spend over the stove.

Plus, the soup also adds a creaminess and thickens up the gravy or sauce that you need for those recipes.

And, if we are trying to cut out processed foods, and/or sodium, canned soups just end up gathering dust in our pantry.

So that means those favorite recipes are filed away under things we used to make.

Or so we thought.

Through the years of this “cleaned up” eating journey of mine I have tried to figure out how to create the perfect condensed soup substitute.

One that you, or I, could just dump and go like the original version, and I can tell you that I have come up with sauces that tasted good but didn’t fit the bill of really being exactly like the can of soup those recipes call for.

The main example I was working with?

The holiday classic, Green Bean Casserole (try my Low Carb Green Bean Casserole using this soup).

My grandmother would dump a can of green beans and a can of cream of mushroom soup together, top with french fried onion rings, and TADA – casserole!

That was the dish that I tested.

So, when I finally nailed it down, you know I did the happy foodie dance all over my kitchen!

Hawk joined in.

I am pretty damn excited to share this recipe with you!!

I have variations for cream of chicken, and cream of celery too.

But you could do cream of onion by adding some sauteed onions, or cream of garlic, the skies the limit.

A HUGE plus to the whole dealio?

  1. I just store the soup in those jars to be used during the week. Everything I have read says not to can dairy so I haven't.

  2. I came across your recipe about a year ago and we just loved it! Such a fresh taste! Now I eat keto so I tried the keto version. It's just as good as the original! Thank you for making this soup lover very happy!

  3. Hi! Do you think I can use this (keto version) cream of mushroom soup as a swap for a can of condensed cream of mushroom in green bean casserole? Or has anyone ever tried it? Thank you!!

  4. Hi, yes absolutely! I just added a link to my low carb version of green bean caserole to this post. I can't believe I hadn't done that up to now!! ENJOY!

  5. Omg I finally read through the full thing and saw you mentioned using this in green bean casserole. IGNORE MY COMMENT! Thank you!!

  6. THANK YOU!! My husband went keto and I've been scrambling, as I want to support his efforts but 1) I'm not a short-order cook 2) I loathe bland foods and 3) I miss my comfort foods! I've been down about our upcoming Thanksgiving meal as I'm a die-hard traditionalist that one day. Besides, cream-a is SO versatile, quick and easy. Can't thank you enough <3

  7. Yay! SO glad to help! I will be posting my keto gravy and roasted garlic mashed cauliflower before Thanksgiving too! Those are staples for the holidays at our house, along with a yummy low carb creamy turkey stew to use up leftovers!

  8. How long does the keto version of the cream of mushroom keep? Does it need to be refrigerated? Can it be frozen?

  9. Yes, you will need to refrigerate it. It will last about 3 days in the fridge. I don't recommend freezing dairy based food mostly because it will change the consistency of them. I know some people do freeze them though and as long as you are ok with the consistency change (it can become kinb of grainy) I guess you could freeze it. Just don't bring it to a boil when reheating it and add heavy cream or even chicken bone broth to thin it as needed.

  10. I'm considering doing a cream of potato. How much would potato would you suggest for that with your ratio?

  11. It depends on how much potato you would want honestly. I would try 1/2 to 1 cup of diced boiled potato?

  12. Thank you, Bobbi! You have saved me! I've been doing a KETO lifestyle for a little while and feeling so much better. This time of year I start craving recipes that use cream of… soups. I just made the Cream of Mushroom and it is fantastic! I did the Happy Foodie Dance in you honor. Thank you again.

  13. Oh I am SO glad you enjoyed the recipe and love that you joined in with the happy foodie dance!!

  14. OMG, I have been looking for or planning to try and develop my own recipe. These recipes are perfect, thank you sooooo much.
    I can't wait to try every one of them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  15. Since this is condensed soup, do we add an equal amount of water when using in a recipe?

  16. I treat these the same way I would treat store bought condensed soup. I used to make my cream of mushroom with about 3/4 of a can of milk so now I will add something like almond milk, water, or heavy cream. You can make it to your own specifications and liking.

  17. If heavy cream is used (keto version), will the soup break if used in a crock pot due to the dairy? Wondering how to sub in for slow cooker dishes. Thank you!

  18. I have not had any issues using it as a substitute for regular condensed soups in any recipes.

  19. I have been looking for a cream soup recipe for years because I have to eat gluten free and my husband has to eat very low carb. It looks like you might have canned the soup, or do you just make a batch each time you need it? Would it be difficult to make several batches and can them? Would they curdle because of the heavy cream?

  20. I make mine as I need them since they don't take long to make. I have never tried canning them as I have seen negative things about canning milk based soups but do know people that can milk and milk based recipes. So I guess it is up to you. I would just really research it before trying.
