Who detests using canned soup in cooking?

I see many recipes that call for 2-3 cans of soup....it turns me off immediately and I find another one to make. I always make my own sauces or cream bases or whatever for my recipes......even with the lower salt soups out there today, I still cannot bring myself to cook with them.

Anyone else?

Sorry, I use them all of the time. I just don't have time to make all of my own sauces.

No, you're not. Canned soups are too salty, even with just one can, and I don't like the texture of cream soups in recipes.

I've never gotten around to modifying recipes that used them, though. It's just not to my tastes anymore.

Maybe its the texture, the taste, the whole shebang....I think it gives the dish an *off* flavor.

At least I am not the only one, though I knew I would be in the minority with this one.

I'm with you too! I just move on to the next recipe. For some recipes, you have to do a google advanced search and put the words "cream of" in the without box. This will sort out all the nasty soup recipes for you.

I don't eat canned anything, let alone soup. Of course I'm allergic to soy and am finding it more and more in the least likely things. So far I've found one soup that doesn't have soy, but it's still manufactured in a plant that uses soy in the other soups, so I avoid that as well. My husband though, gets a can of soup in his lunch when we are running late and don't have time to make the lunch......

No canned soup here. I start with butter, flour, milk and pepper and then add from there.

NO canned soups! "Healthy" varieties have sooo much salt - and other stuff. I'd rather eat soup less often and make it from scratch -then freeze for use for later. This works well in some recipes; I just substitute my own soup.

I am a bit of a freak about eating anything but fresh and organic. I learned to make my own versions of what the soups are trying to accomplish in recipes, I can a big batch of it, can it, and then use as needed. What I do like about recipes that use that sort of thing is the time saved. I dont always have an hour or more to devote to a meal.
