S. O. S. means Soup Or Sauce Mix. It is so easy to remember, SOS. In todays fast paced world. More and more women are working out of the home. They are trying to do everything and be everything to their families. It is hard. If you dont work out of the home, it is hard too. Each of these women find it increasingly hard to prepare meals that are both frugal and delicious. It can be done with some planning and some preparation. There are many homemade mixes that far exceed the taste and nutritional value of commercial mixes. The trick is to prepare them so you ALWAYS have them on hand. This is one of the many recipes that for mixes that are available. I have posted several and have lots more to post. Any requests? I dont just post them, I use them. I use them on a daily basis. They are tried and tested recipes. Tested by me and by my family. I do not post recipes that I have not personally used Unless I state so in my article. Basic Soup Or Sauce Mix 2 cups powdered non fat dry milk 3/4 cup cornstarch 1/4 cup instant chicken boulion 2 Tablespoons dried onion flakes 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning ( I have a recipe for Italian Seasoning if you would like to make your own) Combine all ingredients in a plastic bag, mixing well. This recipe will equal 9 cans of cream soup To use this mix in a recipe calling for 1 can of cream soup: Combine 1/3 cup of dry mix with 1 1/4 cups of cold water Cook & Stir on stove top or in microwave until thickened. Add thickened mixture to casseroles as you would a can of soup Store in a closed plastic bag or other air tight container until ready to use. NO Refridgeration is required Now, how easy was that? You are on your way to cutting out the commercial sodium and MSG filled soups. Congradulations! You can do it. You can eat healthier and save money and time at the same time.

I love frugal recipes. People use so many store bought items to stock their pantries. Why not save a few bucks and make your own? I would rather have homemade mixes that do not have the preservatives in them.

I totally agree with you. The preservatives and the MSG are killing us all slowly. Thanks for the comment

Yay! This mix is gluten-free, so I can use it to make dishes for everyone in my family, even me :) This will really come in handy as a substitute for cream soups, as I haven't found a canned variety yet that is gluten-free. I also don't like the yeast extract that lurkes in canned soups, as I'm sensitive to yeasts.

I think that many poeple just purchase the commercial mixes out of habbit. If they knew all the bad things that was in it. They may think twice. I would love to go to a class and learn just what all the bad additives are. I just know that when I make a homemade mix, it has no MSG or other additives. Canned soups are filled with salt. Nobody needs that much salt. I wont get on my high horse about the MSG content.That stuff is pure evil!
