So many recipes call for canned condensed cream of chicken soup, celery or mushroom soup. So many! Easy, family favorite casseroles often call for canned condensed cream soup, which is a problem when you have to eat gluten-free or dairy-free, because canned cream condensed soup has both. Canned cream of condensed soup also has a lot of fillers, preservatives, MSG, and other junk that it is nice to avoid.There is an easy, healthy substitute for canned cream of condensed soups. Just make your own! It really only takes 5 minutes to make. All you have to do is melt some butter, whisk in some rice flour, and add some broth and milk. Then just let it thicken and you are ready to use it. It will thicken up even more as it cools.

You can make any flavor that you want by sautéing chopped mushrooms, celery, or cooked chicken in the butter before adding the rice flour. It takes a few more minutes, maybe 10 in total instead of 5, but if you have the time, the flavor payoff is worth it.

This recipe is so easy, and it adapts to fit any dietary needs. To make it dairy-free, just use olive oil instead of the butter and use a dairy-free milk (almond and cashew are my favorite!). You can also make a vegetarian substitute for cream of condensed soup by using vegetable broth.

This is such a good recipe to have handy! You’ll find places to use it all the time. A few months ago my sister-in-law called me because she was making dinner for a friend who had a kiddo with a gluten-intolerance and wanted to know what she could substitute for canned cream of chicken soup. I’ve been thinking about developing this recipe ever since.

    Mmm… I’ve missed cream of mushroom soup! This sounds delish. I used to make a really good one, but sort of forgot about it since going df.

    Funnily enough I used to really hate mushrooms. Once I went on a trip with my husband and our friends were in charge of food and all they brought was cream of mushroom soup. We were already all the way up a mountain and no other food in sight when I discovered that. I remember being sooo upset that I didn’t eat a thing after a whole day of hiking up a mountain — water sounded better than that. Years later it became one of my absolute favorite soups. Such a stark contrast though between the two scenarios though 🙂 {and talk about a picky eater! 😉 }

    My daughter wanted to make the “Green Bean Casserole” for Thanksgiving. This is perfect for all the casseroles I haven’t been making. Thank you sooo much! (for all your recipes, that makes it easier to cook Gluten Free!)

      Hi Betsy! I do not know the best way to make this recipe paleo. You’ll have to experiment!

    Looking forward to trying this, though I’ll probably use regular flour. It looks great, and should work in my recipe. I also appreciate the add-ins for celery and mushroom!

    How does this freeze? I would want to freeze in a small canning jar if possible? I would make more than one recipe’s worth if it freezes nicely! Anyone……………………….???

      Hi Ruth,
      I haven’t tried freezing it. If you do, please comment back and tell me how it worked.
      Best,

      Hi Becky,
      I do not have any experience in canning, so I don’t feel qualified to give you an answer. If you try it, please comment again and let me know how it turned out so that other people can know.
      Best,
      Brianna
