Substitute For Campbell's Condensed Soup
0

18 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to make a favorite recipe of mine gluten-free. It's Campbell's Cheesy Chicken and Rice casserole. The recipe calls for a can of Campbell's Condensed Cream of Chicken soup. I can't find a gluten-free substitute for it at any of my local health food stores. I found one on-line, but I'm trying to make this for Saturday night. Does anyone know of a way to substitute condensed cream soups?

Also, what about spices, like onion powder or paprika? Are spices in a jar safe to use or is it more label reading (actually, I can't find ingredients listed on the organic spices I usually buy).

Thanks.

Connie

Connie:

In terms of spices that only have one ingredient in them, say, paprika, oregano, thyme, etc. They are pure spices and don't list other ingredients (by FDA law, if there is only one ingredient, they don't need an ingredient list, as long as "it" is clearly listed on the front). If you are using spice mixes, say, a package for chili, or a packet that has spices for a marinade, or something for a sauce, THEN, you have to read ingredients.

I don't really have a c of chx recipe, per se, but I use Progresso's "Creamy Mushroom" soup (it is gluten free) for all of my "casserole" type dishes. I heat it on the stove and thicken it a little bit with some gluten free flour. I use it for green bean casserole, chicken tettrazini, you name it. My mom even uses it now for her stuff, she likes it better than "condensed" soups.

Hope this helps,

Laura

I just looked this up. Cambell's USA Chicken Broccoli Cheese Chunky, 18 oz is listed as gluten free.

As Laura said, Progresso Cream of Muchroom is a staple in our house. It is good on it's own with a little cream sherry in it. :)

THE CAMPBELL SOUP INFORMATION IS NOT GLUTEN FREE FOR CANADIAN, JUST US.

Hope this helps.

I think Health Valley makes a gluten-free Cr of Mush & Cr of Chx. Haven't tried them, tho.

Good Luck!

To make things like greenbean caserole. Here is a quick version of mushroom soup that I make. It is SUPER easy!

I took a large can (similar to reg. soup can) of mushroom pieces... poured the juice into a pan. I used my pampered chef food chopper and diced up the mushroom pieces into super fine (food processor would also work) and mixed until it was a glob of pureed mushrooms then thinned slightly with some milk. Warmed the mixture and added a bit of cornstarch to thicken. I've used this in gravies or sauces that normally call for a can of cream of mushroom soup and it works just as well. Season with some salt and pepper.....diced onion also adds a nice flavor.

Here is a link to my favorite cream of anything soup recipe. It is fairly easy, okay, not as easy as opening a can, but those days are over. I use it just like I normally would in my recipe.

That site has lots of good recipes and tips, by the way. Check it out, everybody! :)

Neat site... I'll have to bookmark that!

I also make my own creamy soup much like that recipe except I use chicken stock to make it dairy-free also.

Thanks Lisa, for pointing that out for the newbie Canadians who may be among us.

Hello Everyone,

I'm a just a tad late here in thanking everyone for their input! I did make my casserole that day thanks to the input I received here.

I was wondering... some of you said you looked it up and learned the Campbell's brand was gluten-free. Where did you find this info?

Again, thanks so much :D !

I wrote the company and requested a list of their gluten free products. It came in the mail within a week. Also, If I remember correctly, it is on the Delifi Gluten Free Product List for 2006.

Chicken Broccoli Cheese

Savory Lentil..........are the only Campbell's Soups that are gluten free In the United State (not Canada)

Campbell's Bean & Bacon soup is gluten free too (at least in Canada!) But it does have MSG in it.

I do almost what Happygirl does ... I use cream of mushroom soup and instead of thickening it with gluten-free flour, I let it simmer and reduce it so it's more condensed. I use the Health Valley. They also have a good cream of celery soup.

How about the Progesso soup. Is it the same as the Campbell's not gluton free in Canada?

Thank you very much. I have found this message board amazing. I was diagnosed a week and a half ago and all my doctor said to me when he diagnosed me was you cannot eat wheat. I had no idea what that all encompassed until I got home and checked on line what Celiac's was. I'm part Ukranian and one of my favorite dishes is the wheat with honey and peanut butter, and I was upset that I would not be able to eat that anymore. It didn't click till I went on line that wheat meant everything made of flour. This message board has been my saving grace.

I was shopping today and took another look at the soups in hope of stumbling upon a cream of anything soup to use in casseroles. I found Progresso Chicken and Corn Chowder that lists no gluten ingredients on the label. I'm trying it in an impromptu casserole tonight and will see how it turns out.

I mixed it with a cup or so of leftover broccoli chopped small and a cup or so of chopped leftover chicken and a 1/2 cup or so of mixed frozen veg. and a 1/2 cup of milk and topped it with 123 Gluten free Southern Glory Biscuits prepared with buttermilk. I used 6 biscuits on the casserole and baked and saved the others for sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast. I baked the creamy base a little first before topping with the biscuits because some of my ingredients were straight from the fridge and cold. If we like it, I may add parsley to the biscuits next time or some chopped tomato to the base.

Update: I was satisfied with the base but would definitely add some seasoning, herbs or cheese to the biscuits next time. Even with the buttermilk and butter, they tasted starchy. The texture was fine though.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
