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.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
