Cream Of Chicken Soup - Substitute
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have a bunch of recipes that call for a can of cream of chicken soup. I'm also allergic to MSG. Which means that I usually skip all these recipes since I don't know if there is any brand that is truly MSG-free. Now that I'm attempting meal planning gluten-free, I'm starting over and hope to use some of them. I know they are tasty...

Can anyone recommend a Cream of chicken soup that is both truly MSG and gluten-free?

Better yet, does anyone (obviously a more experienced and better cook than I :) know which fresh ingredients can be subsituted for one can of Cream of chicken soup?

Thank you!

Robin

Voila

(Substitute gluten-free flour for regular flour)

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 medium Spanish onion, chopped

2 stalks celery (with leaves), chopped

3 medium carrots, chopped

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour

7 cups chicken broth, homemade or low-sodium canned

3 sprigs parsley

3 sprigs fresh thyme

1 bay leaf

2 3/4 cups cooked, diced chicken

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 1/2 teaspoons dry sherry

1 tablespoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Melt the butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 12 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 2 minutes more.

Pour in the broth and bring to a boil while whisking constantly. Tie the parsley sprigs, thyme, and bay leaf together with a piece of kitchen twine and add to the soup. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Stir in the chicken and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat.

Whisk the heavy cream, sherry, and salt into the soup and season with pepper to taste. Remove and discard the herb bundle. Divide among soup bowls, sprinkle the top of each soup with the chopped parsley and serve immediately.

:D Hi, I knew I had a recipe somewhere for gluten-free Cream of Mushroom soup, it's from The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy by Bette Hagman. The recipe is a general for cream based soups and then at the bottom I will put how to make it with the mushrooms.

1 Cup non-instantdry milk or nondairy substitue (i.e. Pregestimil or Isomil)

1 cup white rice flour

2 Tablespoons dried minced onions

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoons gluten-free powdered chicken soup or veggie soup base

-Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in airtight container- this mix makes the equivalent of 8-9 cans..

FOR MUSHROOM SOUP BASE: Follow the instructions above for Cream Based Soups, using liquid from one 4 oz can of mushroom bits and peices as part of the water (reserving the mushrooms). After the soup thickens, add the mushrooms.

I hope this helps!!!! I've never tried it, but most of her recipes are great!!

That recipe sounds great but I am having trouble finding the gluten-free soup bases she refers to except in the specialty catalogs. Does anyone know if there are any other soup bases I can check out?

Try Knorr BOVRIL manufactured by Unilever. I called and they said it's gluten-free. Oddly enough, OXO also manufactured by Unilever is NOT gluten-free.

Here's a recipe from "Incredible Edible Gluten-free Food for Kids" by Sheri Sanderson:

2 tbsp margarine or butter

3 tbsp potato starch (or corn starch)

3 1/2 cups chicken broth (2x14oz cans)

1 cup light cream or milk

2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken (1 large breast)

My son liked it. I used the Bovril, because I couldn't find gluten-free cans of broth.

thanks bronco for the recipe---now, do you have a recipe for Cream of Mushroom soup that is gluten-free?  I really miss my tuna casserole.

If you are near a Superstore (they might only be in Canada) or a store that sells "President's Choice" brand foods, the PC Cream of 3 mushroom ready-to-serve canned soup is gluten-free.

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      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.
