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.

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
