I'd like to make something that my recipe calls for canned cream soup, but all the substitute recipes I have use powdered milk. Does anyone have a recipe for a cream soup sub that's NT friendly?? Thanks.

You can just use a roux. Melt butter in a pot, add flour and simmer gently. for some recipes you should let the flour get some color and for some you should not. Add milk and stir untill it thickens. Add seasonings and there you have it

We're gluten free here, so we just do a basic white sauce using corn starch. Most basic cookbooks will give a good recipe for this. Then I just add the amount of milk/cornstarch to make the thickness I need--depending on if the soup in the recipe is reconstituted or not.

I also use a basic white sauce with melted cheese to make mac-n-cheese (rice noodles).
