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. :)

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
