When it comes to food alchemy, cream of mushroom soup is one of the strongest multitaskers around. But if you’re looking for something healthier than the canned version, it’s super simple to make yourself. Mildly savory and creamy, with a hint of chicken flavor, this subtle soup is a great building block for other flavors and dishes. It’s velvety when it’s hot, and as it cools, it thickens, making it the ultimate binding agent for casseroles.
