Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

Old-school green bean casserole requires condensed mushroom soup as the sauce for the green beans. While the classic flavor of canned soup works, you can easily make a simple mushroom sauce that is just as flavorful, not too expensive, and with just a few ingredients: cremini mushrooms, butter, flour, milk, and chicken stock. Use this as the base of a green bean casserole, or enjoy on its own!


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 oz cremini mushrooms, diced
  • ¼ cup diced Spanish onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Add butter to a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.


2. Add mushrooms and onions. Cook for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.


3. Add garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes.


4. Stir in flour. Cook for 2 more minutes until flour becomes toasted and fragrant.


5. Add chicken stock while whisking vigorously to avoid any lumps. Stir in milk. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil for 30 seconds.


6. Remove from heat and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. Cool completely and store in fridge until ready to use.
