The other day, I was at the HEB Plus and they had a sample of some cream of mushroom soup available. It was chock full of fresh mushrooms and other good flavors. It was a packaged soup mix thing and being that I was actually there running errands for school, I really didn’t have time to take a look at the packaging or even ask if it was available in any other HEB. Tonight, I was really thinking about how yummy that soup was and I really wanted some but I couldn’t find anything that resembled what could have been that mix at my local HEB so I decided I wanted to recreate it.
I got a package of cleaned and sliced fresh mushrooms, melted a pat of butter in the bottom of a pot, minced two cloves of garlic and added that as well as the sliced mushrooms to the butter. Once that was sauted down, I added a family sized can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup in. I also added a 1/2 can of milk & 1/2 can of water and stirred it until it was all heated. And that’s it.
It’s a really good addition to plain cream of mushroom soup. Next time, I might mince a 1/2 an onion and sauted that in with the garlic. Maybe some chicken….
