Substitue For Golden Mushroom Soup?
0

8 posts in this topic

I have a few recipes that I miss terribly, but that I haven't made in years because they call for using Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup. Anyone know of a substitute or how I could make it myself? Crockpot season is starting, so all the old recipes are calling to me! :-)

We use 'Pacific Natural Foods' Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Celery in several recipes and have used 'Gluten Free Cafe' cream soups too.

Like Lisa, I have used the Pacific Natural soups (Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken). These are condensed soups. I've also used Progresso's Creamy Mushroom for certain recipes. It's not condensed and the mushrooms are slices and therefore "recognizeable". I actually have to puree it when I use it because nobody in my family will eat mushrooms . . . if they see them ;)

I use those as well for Cream of mushroom recipes. But the Golden mushroom soup has such a different flavor that I have no idea how to recreate it. Thanks for the replies. Funny about hiding mushrooms from your family - I made a vegetable lasagna for my family once using chunks of portabellos - my young cousin asked what they were (she was afraid of mushrooms) and her mother told her it was meat. She bought it and loved it. Poor kid! :-)

Just looked up the ingredients:

Beef Stock, Water, Mushrooms, Tomato Puree, Wheat Flour, Modified Food Starch, Salt, Sauterne Wine . . . .

So yeah, our suggestions are nothing like it . . .

I don't know of another product like that . . . I'll look next time I'm at the store.

I think you're going to have to make it yourself. I'm a person that will "wing it" based on the list of ingredients...but if you want a recipe to start with, you could start here:

www.mushroom-appreciation.com/golden-mushroom-soup.html (link wouldn't work, you'll have to cut and paste this address into your browser)

It includes milk which I would leave out and then at the bottom talks about adding diced tomatos/paste to make it like Campbell's...and of course use gluten-free flour.

Janet's post made me curious as we love to doctor gluten-free things to replicate our family's favorites...what recipes did you use Campbell's Golden Mushroom in? We can always use more ideas for the crock pot :)

I believe Sauterne Wine is equivalent to "white cooking wine". I'd try doctoring gluten-free cream of mushroom with a touch of cooking wine or chablis, gluten-free beef boullion and tomato paste.

Granted...the base of campbells "golden" soup is beef broth rather than cream, never the less...you may get a very similar taste - just a bit more creamy???

Sauterne wine and cooking wine are both dreadful in cooking. I did an experiment with both and the outcomes were very grim indeed. The only wine one should use is a wine you can easily drink - not the most expensive by any stretch. Any $10 would do. When cooking with wine, you want it to enhance the flavour of what you are cooking - not mask or ruin it. Often when cooking with wine it must be reduced first. Reducing a gross "wine" to begin with it counterproductive. :huh:

I haven't used a condensed soup in a million years as I strongly dislike them and always do my own thing. You can make your favourite crockpot recipes *better* than before from scratch. What recipes would you like to replicate? We'll be happy to help. :)

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
