Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe created with America’s Dairy Farm Families and Importers, in partnership with the Innovation Center for U.S.Dairy, however, the views and opinions included are my own.
In Chile, it was very common to start all lunches with soup, which would be followed by the main course. My grandmother had an extensive repertoire of soups, and although most were not among my favorites, I’ve always liked vegetable soups and especially cream of mushroom soup.
This recipe welcomes a new partner to the blog America’s Dairy Farm Families and Importers in partnership with the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. You can expect to see recipes with milk, butter, cheese and more. Learning how milk is produced and its benefits, other than being delicious.
This month is unique, June is the National Dairy Month in the USA. Milk and dairy products are nutritious, budget-friendly and very adaptable in the kitchen, it can be incorporated in so many different ways that will convince even the pickiest eater. Vegetable soups are also a great way of introducing new flavors to children; milk helps soups be naturally sweet and have a familiar taste.
Other popular vegetable cream soups in Chile are, besides Cream of Mushroom Soup:
- cream of asparagus
- cream of celery
- tomato cream soup
During National Dairy Month, let’s celebrate how much milk and dairy products are in Latino’s tables: We have countless milk desserts, soups, and creams, we even roast meats in milk. And don’t get me started on butter and cheese, what would be a Barros Luco or quesadillas without them. I hope you enjoy this collaboration and spread the word about the recipes.
Milk only has 3 ingredients: milk, vitamin D, and vitamin A, it doesn’t need anything else to be enjoyed. Remember to find the kind of milk and products that work best for your family. One of my daughters likes mozzarella sticks for a snack, while the other prefers a glass of milk and fruit. You can also find low-fat, fat-free or lactose-free, cows milk options. So many delicious ways. Let’s now review the following recipe, which has gone from generation to generation in my family. During vacations in the countryside, fresh milk could not always be stored, and we’d need to figure out creative ways to use it.
