When preparing whole foods for the family, I avoid processed packaged items as much as possible. At first, I simply cut out lots of recipes. Slowly, I’m learning how to make or substitute for many of the ingredients myself. Here’s a quick white sauce for condensed soup substitution.
2 TBS olive oil
2 TBS whole wheat flour
1 cup stock (vegetable, beef, chicken, etc.)
Multiply this out for the number of cups you need for the recipe.
