Directions to make condensed cream of mushroom soup

Pull out a cutting board to protect your counter and a sharp knife.  Peel and slice the onion in half and then mince up half of the onion in small pieces or if you have a food processor use that and fine chop the onions. Put the remaining half in a Ziplock bag or in a plastic sealed container. 

Chop the garlic clove in a food processor or put it in a garlic press and squeeze. 

Wash one cup of mushrooms and slice or dice them to your liking you can even put them in the food processor if you want to have them very fine.

In a soup pan melt the butter.  When melted well add the vegetables to the pan and sauté for 6  or 7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to taste.

Measure the flour and put in the pan.  Stir the flour into the butter and vegetables well cooking them for one minute.

Add the evaporated milk and the broth to your mixture.

Cook this until it gets quite thick.  

This will make one can of condensed cream of mushroom soup. This will have to be diluted with an additional 10 ounces of cream or milk to make it into a bowl of soup. It will make 2 servings of soup. 

This is great to pop in silicone molds and freeze ahead.  It is really delicious!
