I haven't tried this since I just found it but I think it'll be nice to have on hand. I make alot of things with cream of mushroom soup. The hard part will be finding a bouillon granule that is gluten free,...maybe someone knows of one?

Gail

Homemade Cream of Soup Mix

2 cups powdered milk

3/4 cups cornstarch

1/4 cups chicken, beef, vegetable bouillon granules

2 tablespoons dried onion flakes or 1 teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

1 teaspoon dried basil or marjoram, crushed

1/2 teaspoon black or white pepper

Combine all ingredients and blend until mixed. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. This recipe makes 3 cups and is enough for 9 cans of soup.

To substitute for one can of condensed cream soup:

In a 1-quart saucepan or microwave safe bowl, combine 1/3 cup of soup mix and 1 1/4 cup water.

Bring to a boil or microwave on high for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This can also be used as a quick fat free gravy, thin to the consistency you prefer.

Thanks for this list! I was just looking up a substitute recipe for "cream ofs" soups. I know that in the past year or so, Hy-Vee brand chicken bouillon granules are gluten free, if you happen to have one nearby- http://www.hy-vee.com/docs/gluten%20listin...ober%202005.pdf

(This is their online list).

Thanks again for posting this!

:)

Herb-ox bouillon is gluten-free. The Gluten Free Pantry also sells a Gourmet Spice called Chicken Flavor Broth Mix that I recently purchased but haven't tried yet. It is a powder and looks similar to bouillon and would probably work the same way.

Progresso also makes a gluten-free Cream of Mushroom soup (Vegetable Classics Creamy Mushroom) which I used in a chicken dish once and found it to be very watery. I think I'll make up a batch of the mix you've suggested since the colder weather is coming and I have some yummy crock pot recipes that require cream soup.

Thanks!

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions. I was especially interested in the celery soup. Speaking of the boullion granules--I made a mix using the cubes and just ground them up as fine as I could. Worked well. I did find some chicken granules in a local store here.. It's a store brand--Flavorite. Seems to be gluten-free but I'm still trying the find out. I found the company online but haven't completed my "research".

Thanks again.

Hi Gail,

I did some searching and found out that the Flavorite chicken granules (and the beef, as well) is gluten free. This is a store brand found at a couple of places in my area (southern Illinois). I spoke to a Linda Smith at the company and she confirmed gluten-free. Her number is 866-877-7642. The UPC code of the item I have is 41130-05200. They like to have that information. Good luck. Your recipe is sooo easy!!

Sue

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
