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!

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.

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. So if I could reach through the internet and hug you, I would.

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

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.

Hope the recipe works for you @Nina3712 The thought of sending if your kid off to college is hard. Throw in managing food allergies and it's really scary! Teaching basic cooking skills and finding easy recipe is a great way to prepare them. My daughter is in her second year and manages well. But she has "easy" allergies to avoid.

Thank you @KathyP13 really appreciate the resource! Yes, it's very scary and my daughter has a difficult diet, avoiding wheat, dairy, eggs, treenuts, fish/shellfish, legumes, chicken and a host of individual produce since she has EoE and OAS.

Hi Nina, Welcome to KFA. . Glad to have you. I can certainly understand why you're concerned about college. We'll be there in a few years with our oldest. I would suggest that you start a new topic in our gi disorders forum -https://community.kidswithfoodallergies.org/forum/gastrointestinal-disorders.

This sounds easy to prepare & delish based on everyone's comments below! Just wondering if this might also work to make "cream of leek" soup? Thanks to my sulfite allergy I haven't been able to find a safe version & it's a soup my Great Aunt used to serve when I was small (~ 7y/o) so of course never thought to get her recipe back then...

@allergic rver , yes, it will work for other "cream of" soup options as well. You may need to adjust the liquid a bit as your leeks may not release as much liquid as mushrooms do, so just add a bit more if needed. Definitely let us know how it turns out and post pics!

Melt has annato which is a legume so it can still be a problem for kids that have issues with soy or pea protein.

Hi Kathryn, Hope you are well. Thank you for publishing this vegan Pineapple cake recipe. It sure looks good. I need to attempt to make a gluten free version and will do so shortly but have one query. I noticed that there is no butter/margarine/oil in your recipe and wondered if this was being replaced by one of the other ingredients. Would welcome your confirmation so that I can proceed with making a gluten free version. Thnks. Have a lovely day. Cheers mork.

Hi, Mork ... I'm not Kathryn, but I did want to share that many, many times, applesauce is used as a substitute for oil or butter in low fat muffins and quick breads. I know this because my daughter is allergic to apples and we have to be careful of any sort of low-fat muffin or quick bread. I'm also hoping that our resident GF baking guru Kathy P will see this and drop in with her suggestions. Do let us know how the cake turns out! You can either update us here, or you can post a new topic...

Mork - do you have a gf flour mix in mind for this? This is a very "wet" recipe with the applesauce and pineapple with juice. You may need to increase the amount of flour to compensate for that. I've found that to be the case when converting recipes that are low fat and have a lot of liquid.

Hi Kathy, Noted will use 140 gram GF flour blend for each cup of gluten flour, thank you for this advice. We do have our homemade GF mix blend but will not be using that this time as one of the ingredients, the new packet of potato starch, is suspect as there was some reaction earlier & needs to be retested. For this recipe will be using a store bought GF blend. Cheers. Have a joyful day.

Re: New Food Finds: Allergy-Friendly Portable Mayo Free of Soy and Egg

Carla Kinsey ·
The Just Mayo label warns “May contain soy.” In my experience, this means that there is soy hidden in there somewhere. As in the Helman’s Canola Mayo which actually does have soy in it which is included under “natural flavors” on the label, it may be hidden under the “fruit and vegetable juice” in the label. So the search for Soy Free Mayo continues. Soy is in everything. When I was a child, no one ever heard of soy except in sauce or tofu in a Chinese restaurant. It is in everything for 2...

Hi, Carla, and hugs on the frustration. Way to go on carefully reading the label! You may be on mobile and can't see the original date of this blog -- but it was in 2015. Just Mayo reformulated later on to add soy. I believe there is a soy-free mayo by Vegenaise . I'm not sure of the facility info, but no soy ingredients are listed in the soy-free variety. Look for the light green lid. I'm not sure of the rest of your allergy "avoids," so it may or may not be safe for your family. As always,...

I just finished making this. The recipe does not say how quickly (or not) to add the cubes of oil, so I had to research a traditional recipe to verify that it's added slowly. I used butter since that's what I have on hand. The first few cubes looked good, then it started looking separated and curdled. It wasn't until the very end that it all finally came together. I don't know that I've ever tasted traditional swiss buttercream, but this tastes like light fluffy sweet butter. Great recipe - ...

I've had traditional egg white/butter Swiss meringue buttercream curdle like that and it's really stressful! I've had it curdle/separate bc it was too cold (whip longer til it comes together) and bc it was too warm (ice water soaked towels wrapped around my mixer bowl). Good to know that aquafaba will come back together if it curdles.

DS and I went to our walmart to look for them. We found Just Mayo - but only in the regular packaging, not the little travel packets. It was on the bottom shelf with the other mayos.

Dh says he likes it better than vegenaise. I think it's more savory tasting - vegenaise is more sweet. I also discovered this is the company that appeared on an episode of Bizarre Eats. Still can't find the travel packets though - even in lexington walmarts. We'll keep an eye out though.
