What if I don't have veggie or chicken stock? Also what if I don't have unsweetened milk alternative and what do you mean when you said "save the potato cooking water and use it"?

When you drain the potatoes, put a bowl or something in the sink and drain the potatoes over that. You won't need all of the cooking water. Just usually a cup or so. I use a glass mug. On Nov 13, 2017 4:06 AM, "Kids With Food Allergies" < support@aafa.org > wrote:

I just add olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to my mashed potatoes. I don't drain them so well that I need to add any liquid. Chicken broth is a nice addition, but I don't like to add cold broth, and I'm too lazy to heat any, so unless I'm cooking a meal that has generated chicken broth, I don't use it. Even guests seem to like my mashed potatoes, so I think it works. You would be able to tell the difference if you were eating them side-by-side of potatoes with real milk and butter,...

We use cooked potatoes, avocado oil, classic rice milk (unsweetened), salt & pepper. The avocado oil has a very neutral taste compared to other oils and adds a smooth texture. It's also great for the omega-3 health benefits. I use an electric mixer to whip the potatoes like my mom did which makes a big difference in getting a classic mashed potato texture. My extended family didn't even know they were vegan mashed potatoes until I told them and had the option of adding butter...

Thank you for sharing these tips and recipes! When I have to make one in a rush--I put a box of Enjoy Life soft baked cookies (gluten, dairy, egg, nut free) into a bag and smash them up...then I just press them into the pie plate! The snickerdoodles are great as a base for pumpkin pie!

That's a great idea Tatimom! Do you add melted margarine like a graham cracker crust?? Or are the soft cookies enough to hold together on their own??

It's too late for Turkey Day, but for next month, what I found when I am making dough is to make it days ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge for a few days. Somehow it came out better that way.

Re: Milk-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Melanie Carver ·
Hi Kathy, Yes, I would assume this would do nicely with celery instead of mushroom. I've not made it myself (I'm just now convincing myself that it's okay to eat celery twice a year ). I would suggest replacing the 1 cup of mushrooms with about 3/4 cup diced celery. For the cream of mushroom soup, it is delicious on pasta -- I mix it with broccoli and served on gluten-free pasta. Also--good for casserole; but if you're storing it before use, it will really thicken/condense (garbanzo flour is...

I don't really know how to cook (thanks, food allergies, for making me learn!). How would I turn this into cream of chicken? Also, what kind of flour could I use if not using this recipe right away? (so it won't thicken so much)
Comment

Re: Milk-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Kathy P ·
To do cream of chicken, I normally saute onion and celery minced in the oil. Add the flour and blend that all up. Then instead of milk substitute, I use chicken stock. I generally use a rice flour blend - there is one called Kathy P's brown rice flour mix which is my go to. You can us? A commercial blend. I habe not tried it with garbanzo like this recioe. I use 1 tbsp fat, 1 tbsp flour, and 1 cup stock for a slightly thickened sauce. If I want it thicker, I go up to 1.5 tbsp fat/flour...

Couple of questions: 1) How long can this safely be stored in the fridge (i.e. could I make it this weekend and use it in a recipe Tuesday night?) 2) I suppose this could also be used as a base in a pot pie recipe for leftovers next weekend - if it does store, or can it be frozen? and 3) Does the coconut taste come through? (not a coconut fan...) I have never made a green bean casserole but now I want to try!

Starkled ·
Hi Allison! I haven't made this recipe specifically, so I'm not sure on the storing or freezing of it, but I can answer your third question. We use the unsweetened coconut milk all the time--in the green SoDelicious box (the picture above shows the "original" SoDelicious coconut milk, which is slightly sweetened), in savory dishes like mac n' cheese, and mashed potatoes and we've never noticed a coconut flavor at all.

Re: Milk-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Kathy P ·
I don't find the green SoDe has a coconut flavor. I'm not a big fan of coconut flavor either, and that is my go to milk sub. I'm not sure how long it will store in the fridge. Some thickeners hold up better than others and I haven't use garbanzo flour. I find most times, if I use a gf flour mix, thickened things hold up pretty well or even get a little too thick and need to be thinned a little when I reheat it. I'd probably not keep it more than 3 days in the fridge. But that's more based on...

Thank you! Thank you! This was awesome in green bean casserole. I made a whole dairy free thanksgiving. I find it hard to tell my 5 year old (milk & peanut) he can't eat something and my husband loved it. It's his favorite and he said it was awesome.

This cannot be safely processed in a canner since it contains a thickener. You can try freezing it.

K8sMom2002 ·
I can't speak to this recipe, but because we avoid corn, I make a corn free (but NOT safe for milk or wheat food allergies) version of condensed cream of mushroom soup, with cream and flour , and I freeze it very successfully. This is despite the fact that most freezer resources tell you that you can't freeze cream-based, flour-based sauces without a loss of taste or texture. True, if you were using this as cream of mushroom soup, you'd need to add more milk to adjust for the thickness of...

Thank you for sharing your cream of mushroom soup recipe! Our family will try it. Our daughter struggles with EoE and she is learning to cook before she goes away to college in a few years. This is perfect for helping to widen her selection.
