3 Dry Creamed Soup Recipes with SOS Mix


Today we will continue replacing our canned creamed soups. The most popular creamed soups (after the Cream of Mushroom) are Cream of Celery, Cream of Chicken, and Cream of Potato Soups.

In case you missed yesterday’s explanation of making SOS Mix and Cream of Mushroom soup, you can find it here. You will need to make the SOS Mix in order to make the condensed soups below.

Note on Powdered Non-Fat Dry Milk: Powdered rice milk, coconut milk, and almond milk work just as well although they do impart a little different flavor.

For those of you that have powdered whole milk, you may use that also. With powdered whole milk, as well as the nut milks, you may find you do not need the butter when you are cooking and this can be left out of the recipe if you wish.

Dehydrated Ingredients Variation

Yield: 2 servings

You can prepare these in batches in pint jars or bags. A great way to keep “cans” at-the-ready for your cooking is to make a quadruple batch and bag each “can” serving. When you need a “can” of condensed soup, pull out a bag or jar and you are good to go!

To Prepare a Pantry Pack:

1/3 cup SOS Mix
1-1/2 teaspoons instant vegetable or chicken bouillon (regular or low sodium)
2 tablespoons dried diced onion
1/4 cup dried diced celery

  1. You will need 2 containers for the pantry packet.
  2. In a pint Mason jar, combine the SOS mix and bouillon.
  3. In a small Ziploc bag, add the dried onion and celery. Push out all the air to seal closed. Fold this bag into the jar.
  4. Store in a cool, dry pantry or cupboard.

1 pantry packet celery soup mixture

    Finally! I am replacing all canned foods in our house, as my husband has Alzheimers and canned foods are a big no no in our house (aluminum is thought to exasperate the symptoms). Thank you!

    Love this!! I totally missed the “printable recipes can be found here”. I just clicked the printer under “share this freely”. I sure like that you did the separate printables, when I finally noticed them I went back and downloaded each. So easy to read. This is great! Thank you again.
