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.

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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.
