Make Your Own Mixes

With all this low-fat/low-sodium cooking that I'm doing, I find that it's expensive to purchase all these convenience items like Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup, Light Ragu, etc.. I've been doing some research on making my own and these are a few recipes that I like.

Make Your Own Cream of Soup
Soup or Sauce [S.O.S.] Mix

2 cups powdered non-fat dry milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup instant chicken bouillon (regular or low sodium)
2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
2 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a recloseable plastic bag, mixing well.
Equal to 9 (10.5 oz) cans of cream soup.

2/ To make dressing: Mix 2 tbsp. of mix with ¼ cup vinegar, 2 tbsp. water and ½ to ⅔ cup olive oil.
