Until food companies finally begin to use BPA (Bisphenol A) free cans, prepare your cream soups from scratch and use fresh and frozen vegetables. Make this simple cream soup base to use in your main dish and side dish casseroles instead of condensed cream soups. Feel free to add chopped cooked mushrooms or herbs to this soup base for different flavors.
