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!!

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
