Gluten-Free Chicken Soup With Mushroom As Well As Onion
A light, flavorful, yet filling bowl of homemade chicken soup fits a lot of descriptions. It’s nutritious. Comforting. Easy on the waistline. Not so well known is how easy it can be to make. Even gluten-free soup can be quick and easy.
When first learning about gluten-free living, I had to find some easy dishes to cook for lunch or a light supper when I would previously have opened a can of soup. Gluten-free soups are hard to find in the mainstream manufacturers. They’re also hard to find at restaurants – but that’s a completely different discussion.
Even in the canned soups that don’t actually have noodles or barley in them, often there is some wheat starch hiding in them somewhere, or some barley, or some flavoring or stabilizer in the broth that has gluten in it. We still need better labeling for gluten-free foods, so support 1in133.org to get the government’s ear turned our way on this!
A basic ingredient like gluten-free bouillon cubes can even be hard to find. The brands that are gluten-free, like Herb-Ox, for example, aren’t available in every store.
So many of the gluten-free soups I found in the store were too full of refined carbs for me, not to mention that they often seemed also to be low on fiber and lower on flavor. I found that using a few natural, whole foods made making my own soup easy and better-tasting.
Now, if I don’t have some of my own stock, I can use a prepared one like Pacific Natural’s stock. When I can, though, it’s wonderful to have some homemade chicken stock (good tutorial here at Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free). Make it ahead, freeze it, use it when you’re ready!
There are way too many poor quality gluten-free foods on the market. Homemade chicken soup can be so good! Why put up with someone else’s mediocre canned soup when you can make some outstanding gluten-free soup of your own?
