Gluten Free Greenbean Casserole?
0

10 posts in this topic

Ah! This is my first gluten free Thanksgiving, and one of my favorite dishes is the green bean casserole. Unfortunately, 2 of the main ingredients are not gluten free. 

 

Besides the green beans, we use the French's Fried onions, and Campbells cream of cheddar soup (or cream of chicken, etc etc)

 

Any suggestions for what to substitute these with? I've never made it myself, but the recipe is fairly simple with only three ingredients - I think I can handle it as long as I know what to use.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I just came across this recipe for a gluten free Green Bean Casserole, hopefully this will help.  I haven't tried it yet but I will be testing it out very soon.  Have a great Gluten Free Holiday!

I know some people use Funyons for the onions and this gluten-free cream of mushroom soup

We aren't a big fan of the traditional GB Casserole.  We like the one I posted here:

Wow! Both recipes look great. I'm not sure how it's going to go...my family might not be willing to eat the gluten free recipe and in that case, I will have to make two separate dishes.

 

Funyons are an interesting idea. Would gluten free onion rings work, assuming I can find them? There is a restaurant near my house, (99% gluten free, it's great!) worst case scenario I could order a batch to go, maybe? They are the stringy, long kind of onion rings so I think that would be a good topper. As for the cream of mushroom soup, for me that would be great...I like mushroom - but my parents, boyfriend and sister do not. Do you know of a gluten free cheese substitute? If I could make a gluten free version as close to the real version as possible it would be ideal. Is there an easy way to melt down gluten free cheddar cheese, for example?

 

I'm also not a very experienced cook, I've made simple things like English muffin pizzas, scrambled eggs, cakes, stuff like that. I feel like if I tried to get too creative it will taste awful ;P

 

Thanks for your responses!

What do you usually make green bean casserole with?  Usually its cream of mushroom soup and does not contain cheese.

My mom usually would use either cream of cheddar, or cream of chicken because she, my dad and sister don't like mushrooms. (My boyfriend doesn't either, but I think he would try it just to be supportive) My family won't want to eat it if I use a mushroom soup, so I was hoping to find a gluten free cheddar soup substitute that would work similarly. It would be ideal if I could just make one pan of it that everyone will be willing to try.

Pacific has gluten-free cream of chicken.  Maybe you could add some cheese?

I don't recommend the funyons. We tried it once and they got horribly soggy. I'll grant you, it was years ago (we've been gluten-free nine years) and I don't think there was a readily available cream of mushroom soup, so I'm sure we made our own and it may have been too thin. I honestly don't remember, I just remember being so disappointed in how soggy and gross the funyons got.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
