Pacific Soups

Recommended Posts

I used to use Pacific Cr of Mushroom, Cr of chicken and Cr of celery soups in recipes all the time. Now they have discontinued the Cr of celery. Does anyone have a good substitute? They are marked Gluten Free and I've never had a problem with them. I don't know why the Cr of celery was discontinued.

Are you using it as a soup or a topping for something else?  As a sauce, you can make your own and it only takes five more minutes.    Use a white sauce recipe (butter, milk, starch/flour -- I use corn), add some celery seed, chopped up pre-cooked celery (steam in micro), a little white pepper and you're good to go!  Sub out the celery/seed and you can make your mushroom too by adding a little garlic with pre-cooked mushrooms (sautee them in butter).   Add other seasonings to taste.  

 

Enjoy!

Thanks, Cyclinglady. I'll try it that way. I use all those soups in my old 1960's casseroles.

Me too!   My husband loves casseroles.  

 

I'm the Crockpot Queen!  Just bought some chicken breasts on sale and plan on making Chicken Ala King with that white sauce recipe.  I serve it over mashed potatoes.  But tomorrow, I'm cooking a pot roast in the crockpot.  I'll use the leftovers for either tacos or make Shepard's pie.  It's still hot where I live, so I plug my crockpot in on the back patio.  It's on a table next to my Nesco oven.  I bake all kinds of stuff in that oven.  No need to heat up my kitchen and make the a/c work harder!

My Husband is a big Casserole eater also. Funny thing I was making Powdered Cream of soups before being DX'd I was trying to cut back on salt. The powdered ones have Corn meal , and powdered milk. I do have to say they were pretty good .. you can google it to get recipes. Now I am Gluten Free I just get Gluten Free soups. Haven't found a Crm of celery..

I regularly use the pacific naturals cream of mushroom and chicken soups, I am not on a sodium restricted diet but before I went gluten-free I bought low sodium everything, especially soups.  I wish there were a gluten-free, store-bought option!  Some of that stuff is just SO salty, but the pacific cream soups aren't too bad, at least.  I have considered making a large batch myself and freezing it up, I am a big fan of freezing things.

I used to make big batches of cr of mushroom and freeze  it. I guess I have gotten lazy. It is just so easy to open the package.

 

Cyclinglady, try putting a package of dry onion soup and a pkg of cr of mushroom soup over a roast in the crock pot. Best gravy ever!

Thanks!  But, I must confess that my cream is now soymilk.  Since I'm allergic to garlic (plus, I can't tolerate mushrooms), I can't use those foods anymore in my old recipes!  Yikes!  Try cooking without garlic and that includes onions and leeks (same family).  Anyway, I make do with different herbs to flavor.
