Hey foodies, it’s time to get creative in the kitchen with some recipe substitutions and variations! Are you allergic to dairy or gluten? Don’t sweat it, as there are many options available to make this gluten-free cream soup base perfect for your personal dietary needs.

For a dairy-free substitution, you can use coconut milk instead of regular milk. The coconut milk not only makes the soup base creamier but also adds a hint of sweetness to it. You could also try using almond milk or soy milk if that is more to your taste.

If you happen to be lactose intolerant or have Celiac disease that requires you to follow a strict gluten-free diet, don’t worry – this recipe can still work for you! Swap out the powdered milk with dry coconut milk powder or powdered almond or soy milk. This makes the soup gluten-free as well.

For a low-carb variation of this recipe, try swapping out the rice flour with coconut flour or almond meal, which are both low in carbohydrates. You can even add some healthy veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, spinach or kale for an extra nutrient boost!

If you want to mix things up and create different flavors, try adding bacon bits or chopped cooked chicken for a creamy chicken soup mix. You could also add mushrooms and create a mushroom soup mix or stir in dried onion flakes and garlic powder for an onion and garlic flavored soup mix. The possibilities are endless!

Overall, substitutions and variations are great ways to bring your creativity into play while cooking at home. So feel free to experiment with different ingredients and let your imagination run wild with various combinations until you find what works best for you. Happy cooking!

Alright, folks, now that we’ve got our gluten-free cream soup base all prepped and ready, let’s talk about how we can elevate our culinary game by choosing some amazing pairings for the soup that’ll leave your taste buds dancing with joy.

Firstly, I’d recommend that you serve this soup hot off the stovetop, with a dash of freshly cracked black pepper and a sprinkle of chopped parsley or chives on top. This little garnish not only adds a pop of color to the dish but also adds an additional layer of freshness to it.

Next up, let’s talk bread. Nothing goes better with a bowl of creamy soup than some crusty bread. I’d personally recommend trying out some warm buttered gluten-free rolls or even some toasted garlic bread for extra flavor.

If you’re looking to take the pairing game up another notch, consider serving this gluten-free cream soup base as a side dish rather than a standalone meal. You can pair it with other dishes like baked chicken, roasted vegetables, or even some grilled shrimp to make a complete meal.

For the vegans out there who are eyeing this recipe with envy, fear not! You can substitute dairy milk with coconut milk or almond milk and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Pair it with roasted sweet potato wedges or cauliflower steaks for an incredibly flavorful vegetarian/vegan meal.

In summary, this gluten-free cream soup base is versatile enough to pair well with almost anything you can think of. Whether you choose to have it as an appetizer or a side dish, as long as you stick to gluten-free and dairy-free options, there’s no limit to what you can pair it with. So go ahead and play around with different combinations until you find your perfect match!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Thick, rich, and comforting, this gluten-free soup powder is a game changer.

Listen up, folks! This part is crucial. Nothing ruins a dish more than improper storing and reheating. Luckily, this gluten-free cream soup base recipe is easy to make ahead, store and reheat.

To make it ahead of time, prepare the base as instructed and let it cool for a few minutes before transferring it into an airtight container. You can store it in your fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months, but make sure to label it properly with the date and name of the recipe.

When you want to reheat the soup mix, do not add water directly to the mix. Rather heat 1 cup of water or milk in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk in 1/4 cup of soup mix until smooth. Continue adding water or milk gradually until you reach your desired consistency.

If you want to modify this base, you can take out some portion from the batch to add flavorings such as chili flakes or herbs, then freeze them separately. You can also use this base as a starter for other soups i.e., creamy mushroom soup, creamy vegetable soup or potato soup.

Now I know what you’re thinking – what if I don’t have time to prepare the soup mix from scratch? Don’t sweat it! Store-bought cream soups can be so tempting when life gets busy. However, with celiac disease increasing at an alarming rate in our society, it limits people on what they can eat.

But no worries because these days there are many ready-made options available on market shelves that are safe for those living gluten-free, like Knorr or Great Value products.

As always, make sure to read labels carefully to ensure that all ingredients meet your dietary requirements.

In conclusion, whether you make this gluten-free cream soup base fresh or ahead of time, storing and reheating it properly will ensure irresistible gluten-free cream chicken soup every time.

Now that you’ve got the gluten-free cream soup mix recipe down pat, let me share some tips on how to make it perfect every time! Here are some golden rules that will help you achieve a rich and creamy soup with irresistible flavor:

1. If possible, use homemade cream of chicken soup as the base. This will give your gluten-free soup an unbeatable taste and texture. However, if you’re short on time or energy, go for a good-quality canned version (such as Campbell’s) or use cream of mushroom instead.

2. Don’t skimp on the seasonings! The key to making any soup (especially a cream-based one) come to life is to add plenty of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and any other herbs and spices that suit your fancy.

3. When cooking the rice flour (or cornstarch), be sure to stir constantly to avoid lumps. To make extra-sure that the flour dissolves completely into the liquid without clumping up, consider mixing it with some cold water before adding it to the pot.

4. Use high-quality chicken broth and/or stock whenever possible. Good options include homemade chicken broth (which you can make ahead of time and store in the freezer), Knorr or Great Value chicken bouillon cubes, or canned organic chicken broth.

5. To achieve maximum creaminess, use full-fat milk or half-and-half instead of skim milk. You could also try using coconut milk for an extra-rich and decadent flavor!

6. Be creative with your add-ins! Depending on what you’re in the mood for, you could toss in some cooked veggies like broccoli or carrots, some cooked rice or noodles for added texture, or some shredded rotisserie chicken for a hearty meal.

By following these tips and experimenting with different combinations of soup mix ingredients and add-ins, you’re sure to come up with a winning recipe that satisfies all your cravings.

Gluten Free Cream Soup Base (Powdered) Recipe

This is from Bette Hagman and is used in some of her recipes that I will post. You can make it dairy free also. I use rice milk powder in recipe #189271. You could use either recipe interchangeably. There are variations after the recipe instructions. It makes enough for 8-9 cans of soup. For dairy free, according to Bette, you could use the powdered baby formula Isomil or Pregestimil also.
