Cook until onions are soft and mushrooms are cooked, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Sprinkle in the flour and stir to cover mushrooms and onions.  Add chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper and simmer while stirring until mixture thickens, about six to eight minutes. Makes about 1 1/2 cups soup to use in place of 1 can called for in recipes.

  1. Hi! I’m looking for a recipe to make cream of celery and cream of onion mixes. Thank you

  2. Wonder how it would work with cornstarch, can’t have flour now.

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe! This would also make a quick hot soup for lunch by simply adding another cup of milk to the recipe. Chop up broccoli with the mushrooms and serve topped with grated cheese! This is a wonderful little recipe full of so many possibilites! Your recipes are such an inspiration for me.
