I'm finding the short grain rices (the "sticky" kinds) to be excellent for casseroles. They add that creamy consistency all on their own. If instead you use a pasta such as Tinkyada, then I'd suggest either arrowroot starch or corn starch to get the creamy consistency. If your child can/will eat meat and dairy, then you could put in a bit of gluten-free sausage, some cheese, and some minced bell pepper and onion. Salt to taste and it's sure to be a hit unless your child doesn't like mac & cheese. As he/she becomes more familiar with such dishes you can add more things like veggies for better nutrient value. Spices like curry or cumin go well in these, but there are too many variations and preferences to start on that. Just use your imagination. That's one reason I suggested the sausage, because it adds a bunch of zest so it's easier to get a tasty result.

I generally would add veggies like corn, carrots, peas, etc. Broccoli works great in casseroles too, as does spinach and many others. Squashes are great too, just account for the extra liquid or you'll end up with a watery casserole. Fix that with a higher concentration of the thickening agent (starch).

Kelly,

To combine Mike's idea and your progresso mushroom soup... I've always loved green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. Well, I recreated it pretty well using fresh green beans, Progresso cream of mushroom soup, and instead of French's fried onions (not gluten-free), I used Funyons (made by Frito Lay) on top - they're gluten-free! Sooo yummy! Make sure you broil it for a little bit at the end. You can also top with slivered almonds.

My kids have been liking Tater Tot Hot Dish (Casserole). Brown up some hamburger meat with your favorite seasoning and diced onions. Mix hamburger, green beans, corn or whatever veggie you like with the soup and top with tater tots. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.

I second CheriA - that was my childhood casserole. Cream of mushroom soup, browned ground beef, frozen veggie mix (corn, greenbeans, carrots and peas) and tater tots on top. I made it the other nite and I browned up some hashbrowns for the top instead because I wasn't sure if the OreIda tatertots were gluten-free.

The progresso is a little bit thinner than the Campbell's cream of mushroom, but it still worked.

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

Wow, you have all enlightened me--I never bothered to check about Progresso's cream of mushroom soup or Funyons for that matter, but those are two things that I loved before diagnosis. I'm excited that I'll get to eat these things again. Here in PA, it's really starting to get to be hot casserole weather.

I'm almost positive that it is not dairy free. Bette Hagman has a cream of mushroom soup recipe in her "Cooking Fast & Healthy" book.

I always get in right in my grocery store by the other Progresso Soups. I imagine it must be available all over, since its not a specialty brand. Maybe you could ask your store? And if they dont have it, maybe they can get it in for you??
