Juliebove,

I feel bad that you have so many difficult allergies to find subs for.

Can you use hazelnut, oat or potato milk? My grandma used to make the gravy with the boiled potato water. I remember her saying that it gives the gravy a good flavor. You could use potato water (get it as thick as you like it)or some potato flakes I bet, for any creamed soup mix sub. ;) Just toss in the other goodies with it. It would be easy too.

I found another recipe if you can sub the powdered milk. The web site may also help you with finding subs for your other allergies :)

http://www.allergygrocer.com/id728.html

go to:

recipes

soup recipes

cream soup mix

FYI

this might help someone that can't have dairy but can have almond: In Cooking Free by Carol Fenster(great book for anyone allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, and sugar), you can sub almond flour for dry milk powder or nondairy milk powder. She states it under the Pizza Mix recipe. And she says to use the same amount of almond flour (finely ground blanched almonds) for the dry milk powder, for browning baked goods stated under dairy subs.

Carol lists these brands for a nondairy milk powder sub:

Solait, Better Than Milk, English Bay, Vance's DariFree

some are available in both soy and rice forms

Bette Hagman lists:

Lacto-Free for the lactose intolerant (soy)

Tofu White (soy)

NutQuik (almonds)

Powdered baby formula: Isomil, ProSobee, Nursoy (all soy based)

Pregestimil (corn based)

(my dd wants to be a vegan/gluten-free so I have been checking into what I can use for her, she is not allergic...yet) I am learning so much ...thanks to everyone on this forum!!!

I haven't tried hazlenut milk, but I shall. As for the Dari Free, I find it to be sickeningly sweet. I made a recipe of Chicken A La King using it and it came out quite nasty. Just tasted like chicken and noodles with sugar. As for the forumla, that won't work since it is casein and not necessarily the lactose that's a problem. But thanks!

Here's what my mom and I do:

Take a tablespoon or two of butter (we really don't measure), melt it in a sauce pan, add enough flour (we use rice or Pamela's baking mix) to soak up the melted butter. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, add mushrooms, chicken broth, etc. to desired amount. Let thicken to diesired constistancy.

Last night we made cream of mushroom soup using this recipe. If you don't like whole mushrooms, but still want the taste, puree the mushrooms with a little bit of milk inthe blender.

The problem is we can't have butter and milk.

ITA about the Dari Free, Julie. I use it in my dd's bread to replace the dry milk powder, and I hide it in smoothies. She will not drink it straight or in anything savory.

I wanted to add the following recipe to this thread. I found it in an Idaho Potato brochure.

Idaho Potato Cream Sauce

1 small Idaho potato (about 4 oz.), peeled and diced

1/2 cup water

1 T. butter-flavor granules

1 T. onion powder

1 tsp. chicken bouillon granules

1/2 to 1 cup skimmed evaporated milk

1/8 tsp. pepper (white pepper optional)

In small saucepan, combine Idaho potato and water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until potato is tender, about 10 minutes.

Using an electric hand mixer, blend potatoes until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup milk along with the remaining seasonings, blending until smooth and adding additional milk to reach a cream sauce consistency. Yield 4 (1/2 cup) servings.

Serving suggestion: Use as a base for creamy soups, casseroles and scalloped potato dishes, or anything to which you want to impart a velvety richness without adding fat.

Adjust it to suit your needs-gluten-free/dairy free. Hey, just save out a potato the next time you boil or bake some adding water, milk or broth to mash it with. (Or throw it out in the street for a truck to run over it...Ha Ha Ha :rolleyes: ). Then use it in the recipe above. Simple. B)

I found another recipe that belongs on this thread. I am sure you can turn it into cream of chicken-mushroom or cream of chicken. You may want to reduce the amount of mushrooms or add a bit of flour. I have not tried it but the pic in the book looks like a really good soup. I found it in Pillsbury Quick Cooking. Adjust according to your needs. Use gluten-free ingredients or allergy friendly.

Zesty Mushroom Soup

1 T. margarine or butter

1 cup thinly sliced fresh mushrooms

1/4 cup thinly sliced onion

2 T. flour (gluten-free of course)

1/2 to 1 tsp. dried tarragon leaves

1/8 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)

1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup half and half

2 T. dry white wine or water

Melt margarine in med. saucepan over med-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add flour, tarragon, cayenne, salt and pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; gradually add broth, half and half and wine. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. 2 (3/4 cup) servings.

I found the perfect thing!

Heat 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and 1/2 cup plain rice milk over medium heat. Meanwhile combine 3/4 cup gluten-free flour mix with 1 cup plain rice milk in a bowl. When broth mix comes to a boil, add the rice milk and flour and whisk until thick. Only takes another minute or so.

It's excellent! I am going to try this next time I make tuna casserole but using vegetable broth and adding plenty of chopped mushrooms.

When I was at my favorite gluten free bakery today, Outside the Breadbox in colorado springs (she sells other products as well as bread), I found Cream of Portabella Soup. It is gluten, dairy, and vegan. It does contain soy for those who are intolerant to soy. It is by imagine foods. On the side of the carton it says can be used in any recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup. I also like Progresso's cream of mushroom but has too much dairy for my system (I can only tolerate small amounts of dairy). Progresso's cream of mushroom soup is gluten free but hard to find.

They sell that here but we try to avoid soy.

Hi, Julie. I'm glad that you found something that will work for you. Let me know how it comes out with the tuna casserole. My dh just asked recently for that. I haven't made it in a long time because I didn't think it would work w/the recipe I've been using.

I will. Not sure when I'm going to make it though.

I keep trying to find a cream of chicken soup! It's driving me NUTS! I found a really yummy sounding "Thanksgiving Leftover's" recipe...but it calls for Cream of Chicken soup....hmmm....guess I'll have to think of a sufficient substitute.

Oh, and in case you were wondering...the leftover recipe...

Take your leftover mashed potatoes and spread them into the bottom of a casserole dish.

Cover with leftover dressing or stuffing (gluten-free, of COURSE)

Chop up leftover turkey and saute in a little butter.

Add Cream of Chicken soup to the butter/turkey and heat to the point of thickening...not too thick...just when it starts to thicken.

Pour over casserole.

Bake @ 350 til heated and bubbly.

See? It sounds GOOD! And I'm ALWAYS throwing away Thanksgiving leftovers.....the leftover recipes I have seen just sound gross....this sounds pretty good....so I'm trying like HELL to find a proper substitute for that cream of chicken!

My husband makes a to-die-for cream soup base with NO cream. He boils rice and onion until mushy in chicken broth (or broth of choice). skip onions if you don't like onions. after it is done, he blends it, and the blended rice makes it creamy. I imagine it could be thickened with some arrowroot or sweet rice flour or cornstarch if you needed it thicker. we do sometimes add cream at the end to make it richer, but it is not necessary. the onions give it a nice flavor. its great for cream of turkey soup--(thanksgiving leftovers--turkey broth).

you could use the rice cream base on that. I make the same casserole, and cover it with my gravy. it is yummy!! and yes, I make my gravy gluten free, of course.

    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
