Love cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup?  You can make up cream of ____ soup mix base for much cheaper than continually buying packages of the soup mix in the store.

4 cups instant non-fat dry milk
1-1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup instant chicken bouillon granules
4 tbsp dried minced onion
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp basil
1 tsp pepper (or to taste)

Combine all ingredients, stirring very well.  For cream of mushroom, you can add dried mushroom pieces.  For cream of vegetable, you can add dried vegetable flakes to the mix.

To make the soup, combine 1/3 cup cream soup base with 1-1/4 cups of water.  Bring to a boil then allow to simmer until heated through or any dried mushrooms/vegetables are softened.
