Homemade Cream Of Soup Mix
0

5 posts in this topic

I haven't tried this since I just found it but I think it'll be nice to have on hand. I make alot of things with cream of mushroom soup. The hard part will be finding a bouillon granule that is gluten free,...maybe someone knows of one?

Gail

Homemade Cream of Soup Mix

2 cups powdered milk

3/4 cups cornstarch

1/4 cups chicken, beef, vegetable bouillon granules

2 tablespoons dried onion flakes or 1 teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

1 teaspoon dried basil or marjoram, crushed

1/2 teaspoon black or white pepper

Combine all ingredients and blend until mixed. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. This recipe makes 3 cups and is enough for 9 cans of soup.

To substitute for one can of condensed cream soup:

In a 1-quart saucepan or microwave safe bowl, combine 1/3 cup of soup mix and 1 1/4 cup water.

Bring to a boil or microwave on high for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This can also be used as a quick fat free gravy, thin to the consistency you prefer.

Thanks for this list! I was just looking up a substitute recipe for "cream ofs" soups. I know that in the past year or so, Hy-Vee brand chicken bouillon granules are gluten free, if you happen to have one nearby- http://www.hy-vee.com/docs/gluten%20listin...ober%202005.pdf

(This is their online list).

Thanks again for posting this!

Herb-ox bouillon is gluten-free. The Gluten Free Pantry also sells a Gourmet Spice called Chicken Flavor Broth Mix that I recently purchased but haven't tried yet. It is a powder and looks similar to bouillon and would probably work the same way.

Progresso also makes a gluten-free Cream of Mushroom soup (Vegetable Classics Creamy Mushroom) which I used in a chicken dish once and found it to be very watery. I think I'll make up a batch of the mix you've suggested since the colder weather is coming and I have some yummy crock pot recipes that require cream soup.

Thanks!

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions. I was especially interested in the celery soup. Speaking of the boullion granules--I made a mix using the cubes and just ground them up as fine as I could. Worked well. I did find some chicken granules in a local store here.. It's a store brand--Flavorite. Seems to be gluten-free but I'm still trying the find out. I found the company online but haven't completed my "research".

Thanks again.

Hi Gail,

I did some searching and found out that the Flavorite chicken granules (and the beef, as well) is gluten free. This is a store brand found at a couple of places in my area (southern Illinois). I spoke to a Linda Smith at the company and she confirmed gluten-free. Her number is 866-877-7642. The UPC code of the item I have is 41130-05200. They like to have that information. Good luck. Your recipe is sooo easy!!

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
