This is #2 of 3 gluten-free cream soups. As written, these recipes are free of Corn, Wheat, Gluten, Soy, Egg, Yeast and Nuts. NOTE FROM SOURCE: Recipe soups are those soups that one would normally find canned. If you have food allergies, the chances of finding a canned soup you can use in recipes is slim. Besides the usual allergens, you will generaly also find MSG in almost all canned soup, even many of the "health food store" type. MSG is not always listed in that way. MSG frequently hides in foods in the form of "hydrolyzed vegetable protein," "autolyzed yeast," "spices," "flavorings," and other non-specific ingredients. Here are some "semi-condensed" soups you can make from scratch and keep in the freezer for those times when you have a recipe that calls for a canned soup.
- 2 chicken thighs
- 2 cups water
- 1⁄2 large carrot
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
- 1 cup half-and-half
- NOTE RE AMT:.
- Makes approx 2-1/2 cups of "condensed" cream of chicken soup, which will work for most recipes calling for canned soup.
- Place the chicken in the water, bring to a boil and immediately lower to simmer.
- Add the carrot, onion and celery.
- Simmer for 1 hour.
- Carefully remove the vegetables and chicken from the broth.
- Place the vegetables in a food processor, remove the meat (not fat) from the bones, and place the meat in the food processor as well.
