Cream of mushroom soup substitute

My bf hates cream of mushroom soup to the point of refusing to eat anything with cream of mushroom as an ingredient. Any suggestions for what I could use in the million recipes that call for this, especially those in which it is a main ingredient?

  • I have the EXACT same problem!! I'm still iffy on what to use lol, if its something that had veggies in and I use cream of celery, or if it already has chicken I use cream of chicken but on hamburger recipes IDK what to do! lol. I understand how you feel almost every recipe that sounds good to me has it and it is not even remotely an option with him....ugh SO annoying. Hope you find something.

  • cream of broccoli works well with ground beef recipes... So does cream of tomato depending on what it is.

  • Cream of anything else. I hate cream of mushroom, and I am allergic to mushrooms to boot - I use cream of celery for everything.

  • My sister has said we can use cream of chicken instead. DH likes the tuna casserole I make, but he hates cream of mushroom. I haven't tried it yet b/c I've been pregnant up until this month, so yeah...
