Substitute For Campbell's Condensed Soup

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to make a favorite recipe of mine gluten-free. It's Campbell's Cheesy Chicken and Rice casserole. The recipe calls for a can of Campbell's Condensed Cream of Chicken soup. I can't find a gluten-free substitute for it at any of my local health food stores. I found one on-line, but I'm trying to make this for Saturday night. Does anyone know of a way to substitute condensed cream soups?

Also, what about spices, like onion powder or paprika? Are spices in a jar safe to use or is it more label reading (actually, I can't find ingredients listed on the organic spices I usually buy).

Thanks.

Connie

Connie:

In terms of spices that only have one ingredient in them, say, paprika, oregano, thyme, etc. They are pure spices and don't list other ingredients (by FDA law, if there is only one ingredient, they don't need an ingredient list, as long as "it" is clearly listed on the front). If you are using spice mixes, say, a package for chili, or a packet that has spices for a marinade, or something for a sauce, THEN, you have to read ingredients.

I don't really have a c of chx recipe, per se, but I use Progresso's "Creamy Mushroom" soup (it is gluten free) for all of my "casserole" type dishes. I heat it on the stove and thicken it a little bit with some gluten free flour. I use it for green bean casserole, chicken tettrazini, you name it. My mom even uses it now for her stuff, she likes it better than "condensed" soups.

Hope this helps,

Laura

I just looked this up. Cambell's USA Chicken Broccoli Cheese Chunky, 18 oz is listed as gluten free.

As Laura said, Progresso Cream of Muchroom is a staple in our house. It is good on it's own with a little cream sherry in it. :)

THE CAMPBELL SOUP INFORMATION IS NOT GLUTEN FREE FOR CANADIAN, JUST US.

Hope this helps.

I think Health Valley makes a gluten-free Cr of Mush & Cr of Chx. Haven't tried them, tho.

Good Luck!

To make things like greenbean caserole. Here is a quick version of mushroom soup that I make. It is SUPER easy!

I took a large can (similar to reg. soup can) of mushroom pieces... poured the juice into a pan. I used my pampered chef food chopper and diced up the mushroom pieces into super fine (food processor would also work) and mixed until it was a glob of pureed mushrooms then thinned slightly with some milk. Warmed the mixture and added a bit of cornstarch to thicken. I've used this in gravies or sauces that normally call for a can of cream of mushroom soup and it works just as well. Season with some salt and pepper.....diced onion also adds a nice flavor.

Here is a link to my favorite cream of anything soup recipe. It is fairly easy, okay, not as easy as opening a can, but those days are over. I use it just like I normally would in my recipe.

hez, I just found that recipe this weekend and used the cream of mushroom recipe in a casserole. Turned out GREAT!

That site has lots of good recipes and tips, by the way. Check it out, everybody! :)

Neat site... I'll have to bookmark that!

I also make my own creamy soup much like that recipe except I use chicken stock to make it dairy-free also.

Hello Everyone,

I'm a just a tad late here in thanking everyone for their input! I did make my casserole that day thanks to the input I received here.

I was wondering... some of you said you looked it up and learned the Campbell's brand was gluten-free. Where did you find this info?

Again, thanks so much :D !

I wrote the company and requested a list of their gluten free products. It came in the mail within a week. Also, If I remember correctly, it is on the Delifi Gluten Free Product List for 2006.

Chicken Broccoli Cheese

Savory Lentil..........are the only Campbell's Soups that are gluten free In the United State (not Canada)

Campbell's Bean & Bacon soup is gluten free too (at least in Canada!) But it does have MSG in it.

I do almost what Happygirl does ... I use cream of mushroom soup and instead of thickening it with gluten-free flour, I let it simmer and reduce it so it's more condensed. I use the Health Valley. They also have a good cream of celery soup.

How about the Progesso soup. Is it the same as the Campbell's not gluton free in Canada?

Thank you very much. I have found this message board amazing. I was diagnosed a week and a half ago and all my doctor said to me when he diagnosed me was you cannot eat wheat. I had no idea what that all encompassed until I got home and checked on line what Celiac's was. I'm part Ukranian and one of my favorite dishes is the wheat with honey and peanut butter, and I was upset that I would not be able to eat that anymore. It didn't click till I went on line that wheat meant everything made of flour. This message board has been my saving grace.

I was shopping today and took another look at the soups in hope of stumbling upon a cream of anything soup to use in casseroles. I found Progresso Chicken and Corn Chowder that lists no gluten ingredients on the label. I'm trying it in an impromptu casserole tonight and will see how it turns out.

I mixed it with a cup or so of leftover broccoli chopped small and a cup or so of chopped leftover chicken and a 1/2 cup or so of mixed frozen veg. and a 1/2 cup of milk and topped it with 123 Gluten free Southern Glory Biscuits prepared with buttermilk. I used 6 biscuits on the casserole and baked and saved the others for sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast. I baked the creamy base a little first before topping with the biscuits because some of my ingredients were straight from the fridge and cold. If we like it, I may add parsley to the biscuits next time or some chopped tomato to the base.

Update: I was satisfied with the base but would definitely add some seasoning, herbs or cheese to the biscuits next time. Even with the buttermilk and butter, they tasted starchy. The texture was fine though.

    • The reason I think it was the shampoo? Process of elimination. Our house is almost entirely gluten free (except for this shampoo which slipped through the cracks until I read the ingredient label). My husband has bread that he eats at lunch, but he practices something that resembles aseptic technique from the lab when he's making his sandwiches. He's been doing this for years now and I've never been glutened from within my home. The previous week I hadn't eaten out, I cooked all my food, I don't eat processed food and I never eat something from a shared facility.  Usually if I get glutened it's a single dose sort of thing and it follows a very predictable course, to the point where I can estimate when I got glutened within 24 hours of when it happened. However, this time, I was feeling achy and arthritic and moody for about a week before it got bad enough for me to recognize it as the result of gluten exposure, at which point we went searching and found the shampoo (and conditioner, which does leave more of a residue than shampoo), which he immediately stopped using. Within three days I was feeling back to normal (which is the usual course for me).  Sure, it could have been something else, but I know how sensitive I am, and, as silly as it sounds, it was the only thing that made sense. The other thing you said: You're correct, mine was not a rock solid celiac diagnosis, but I have no doubt that gluten is the problem. I was SICK. I went through two different gluten challenges in an effort to get a more straightforward diagnosis during which I was a barely functioning human being. Consuming gluten may not have given me blunted villi or elevated antibodies, but it did inflame my gut, and actually started to damage my liver. If you look at my diagnosis thread, I had elevated liver enzymes, which have been correlated with celiac disease in the past. There was no alternative explanation for the liver enzymes, he checked EVERYTHING.  I too am a scientist and I have spent a lot of time with the literature trying to make sense of my condition.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26150087 I also have no doubt that gluten was damaging my intestines in some way, as any prolonged gluten exposure in the past has inevitably been followed by a severe FODMAP intolerance that goes away once I've eliminated the gluten and given myself a month or so to heal.  I also had a very fast diagnosis following the onset of symptoms (~1 year) so it's possible that the disease never had a chance to manifest as full celiac. I wasn't willing to eat gluten long enough to find out. As a result of my diagnosis, hazy as it was, I am *meticulously* gluten free. It is not a fad for me. I don't occasionally cheat. It is my life, for better or worse. All of that being said, I'm not sure what my diagnosis has to do with your question. You say you're not trying to be rude, but when you bring up my diagnosis in a thread that has nothing to do with diagnostics, it seems like you're trying to undermine the validity of my disease or the validity of my input in this forum. If I'm being hypersensitive, I apologize, but that's how you came across on my end. I'll admit that the fact that my diagnosis wasn't more straight forward does make me a bit defensive, but I promise that even if I didn't have a solid diagnosis, I interact with the world as though I did, and I'm not out there giving people the wrong idea about celiac disease by not taking it seriously. If there was a connection between your question and my diagnostics that I missed I would appreciate you giving me the chance to better understand what you were asking. 
    • I am just curious.  As a scientist (and I am not trying to be rude), how can you determine if hydrologized wheat protein from your husband’s shampoo was actually the culprit?  If I recall at your diagnosis, you were seronegative, Marsh Stage I, gene positive,  but your doctor still  suspected celiac disease.  You improved on a gluten diet.  Other than observation, how do you really know?  Could it not be something else that triggered your symptoms?   I firmly believe that even trace amounts of gluten (under 20 ppm), can impact sensitive celiacs.  But traces of a protein within a shampoo from someone else’s hair that was rinsed?    
    • I also can't have dairy but through a series of experiments and a lot of research I think I've pinpointed my problem. It may or may not be the same for you, but I thought I'd share.  There are two kinds of beta-casein protein A1 and A2. We'll call A1 "bad casein" and A2 "good casein". The two proteins differ only in a single amino acid, but this is enough to make it so that they are processed differently in your guy. Bad casein is actually broken down into a casomorphin, which is an opioid peptide. That does not mean that milk gets you high, or is as addictive as heroin, or anything like that, it just means that it can interact with opioid receptors (which the gut has a bunch of). It's worth noting that opioids cause constipation due to their interaction with the opioid receptors in the gut, and that a lot of people feel like cheese and dairy slow things down, but any connection between the two is pure speculation on my part at this point.  Now here's where things get weird. The vast majority of milk cows in the western world are derived from Holstein-like breeds, meaning black and white cows. In a few select places, you'll see farms that use Jersey-type cows, or brown cows (Jersey cows produce less milk than Holsteins, but many connoisseurs feel it's a higher quality milk, particularly for cheese).  Holstein-like cows have A1 and A2 casein (bad and good), however, Jersey-type cows only have A2 (good casein), unless their genetic line involved a Holstein somewhere in the past, which does happen.  A company in New Zealand figured out how to test their cows for these two genes, and selected their herd down to cows that specifically produce ONLY A2 (good) casein. You might have seen it in the store, it's called A2 milk. Some people have had a lot of luck with this milk, though it still doesn't solve the problem of cheese.  I have suspected, due to trial and error and a few accidental exposures, that I have a problem with A1 casein, but not A2. In line with this: I am able to eat sheep and goat dairy without any difficulty, so at least I can still enjoy those cheeses! I am also fortunate because I'm apparently not too sensitive, as I can still eat cow-milk butter. The process of making butter removes *most* (read: enough for me) of the casein.  However, if I eat cow cheese or a baked good with milk, I get really sick. It's a much faster reaction than if I get glutened. Within minutes I'm dizzy and tired and my limbs are heavy. I have to sleep for a couple of hours, and then, over the next couple of days, I'm vulnerable to moodiness and muscles spasms and stomach upset just as though I'd been glutened (though the brain fog isn't as bad). I actually haven't tried A2 milk yet, mostly due to lack of availability (and motivation, I don't miss milk, I miss CHEESE). However, last year, when I was getting ready to go on a trip to Italy, I had a thought. Once, in the recent past, when I'd been testing dairy, I'd had a slice of parmesan cheese. Miracle of miracles, I was fine. I didn't feel a thing! I was so excited that I ran out and got some brie to eat as a snack. That did not go so well... Turns out parmigiano reggiano is made from the milk of the Reggiana variety of cow which is, you guessed it, a brown cow (they say red). I did a little more research and found that dairies in Italy predominantly use brown cows. So I decided to try something. As some of you may know, Italy is something of a haven for celiacs. It's one of the most gluten-free friendly places I've ever been. You can say "senza glutine" in the smallest little town and they don't even bat their eyelashes. You can buy gluten free foods in the pharmacy because they're considered a MEDICAL NECESSITY. If travelling-while-celiac freaks you out, go to Italy. Check out the website for the AIC (Italy's Celiac society), find some accredited restaurants, and GO NUTS. While I was there, I decided to see if I could eat the dairy. I could.  Friends, I ate gelato Every. Single. Night. after that. It was amazing. Between the dairy being safe for me and the preponderance of gluten free options, it was almost like I didn't have dietary restrictions. It was heaven. I want to go back and never leave.  So that's my story. Almost too crazy to believe.  TL;DR: Black and white cows make me sick, brown cows are my friends.
    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now!
