Paige emailed in the following tip:
Last night I needed two cans of cream of mushroom soup for a recipe, and I saw that we only had one. I happened to have two small cans of mushroom bits and pieces from Aldi that I hadn’t used, so I made my own, instead!
I just heated two Tablespoons of butter in a saucepan and then stirred in two Tablespoons of all-purpose flour. I then added in two cans of mushrooms (undrained) and stirred in a bit of milk (you can also use broth) until texture was creamy.
It was the tastiest cream of mushroom soup I’ve had! Since it wouldn’t be wise to buy the two small cans of mushrooms every time to make this, I am going to go to Aldi to buy fresh mushrooms when they are on sale, chop them fine, saute them in butter and then add the flour and milk. -Paige
