Hey there!

My mom is trying to make a casserole that requires cream of mushroom soup.

What do yall use as a substitute when a recipe calls for COM soup in order to make it gluten-free?

Thank you!

I use Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup. If it's too thin, thicken it up with some corn starch.

It's in a can and you can find it where all the other soups are in the grocery store.

I saute some mushrooms(whole, sliced, diced, whatever) in butter (dairy free in our case) then add enough of whatever kind of milk you use to make the full amount for the recipe. Then whatever starch/flour thickener you would use in a gravy. Homemade will have way less salt than the canned version so you may want to add some.

I use a combination of sour cream, chicken broth, and mushrooms sauteed in butter (I usually add garlic and onion, too).

I buy a can of mushroom stems and pieces add the whole thing liquid and all to the food processor and chop it up. To that in a pan over low heat add a cup of whipping cream or half & half, some salt and pepper, thicken it up with some corn or tapioca stach. It takes only a few minutes and is delicious.

27 years of misdiognoses
seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet
rheumatoid arthritis May 1980
wrist joint replacement Jan 1984
fibromyalgia May 1980
insomnia since the 80's
diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds
Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea
Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:
depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.
Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

I can recommend something not to try. Don't use Health Valley Organic Cream or Mushroom. The stuff tastes like a bad combination of vinegar and pepper. It's also to runny to be used in casseroles and such.

Our experience with Health Valley Organic Cream of Mushroom was just the opposite. We just had Salisbury Steak and used this soup for the gravy combined with some Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup, and it was enjoyed by all. It's more like Campbell's than Progresso is. Progresso is more mushroom (which the kids don't like that much) and little soup. Health Valley also makes Cream of Celery and Cream of Chicken, which I plan to try next in casseroles, etc. I did thicken the soup near the end to make the gravy a little thicker. I cook for a 15 yo who is pretty picky, so was pleased that he really liked this gravy. Of course, you have to try it yourself since we all have different tastes.
