All these ingredients are available at grocery stores in Dakar. Try the Casino stores first.

– canned mushrooms
– instant mushroom soup mix OR boxed mushroom soup

    I tried it like this a few years ago, making the actual mushroom soup, and it was super runny. So what I tried next time (and have been doing ever since) is mixing the mushroom soup mix with 1 pot (the regular size, not the small size) of creme fraiche. So good!Also, I occasionally see Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup at Monoprix, but it's usually around 3,50 euros.

      Hi Kelly

      I’ve seen them at two little grocery stores (one in Hann Maristes and one in Mermoz), so they should be in the larger ones too – especially Casinos. Look for them near the crackers, pretzels, peanuts and appetizer snacks.

        Thanks a bunch!
