Gluten Free Cream Soup

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease I wasn't sure I was going to be able to have my favorite comfort food - Hamburger Potato Casserole again.  It called for a can of cream soup which has flour in it.  Soon after I was diagnosed I found a great recipe book - Life Tastes Good Again.  I found mine at Maceys or you can get it here.  It has a great cream soup recipe that is really easy.  We like it better than the canned soup and its actually cheaper to make than the buying the can of cream soup.

2 T Featherlight Mix (You can find recipe here)
1 1/2 t chicken boullion (check labels - I use Better Than Boullion paste - best price I found is at Costco)
1 cup milk
2 T butter/margarine
1/8 t salt
dash pepper

Dissolve the chicken base in the milk.

Melt butter over medium heat.  Stir in Featherlight mix, salt and pepper.  Continue stirring over heat until slightly browned and bubbling.

Add milk (with the added boullion).  Stir with a whisk (to eliminate lumps) until sauce is thickened and boiling.  Remove from heat.

Can be used to replace 1 can of condensed soup in recipes.
