Gluten-Free CONDENSED Cream of Mushroom Soup

So last week I posted about Campbell's list of gluten-free soup and everyone was excited.

However, there was an outcry for Campbell's to make their condensed mushroom soup gluten-free so everyone could make their favourite recipes again.  Settle down... no, Campbell's has not changed their formula.

But I have good news... I found gluten-free CONDENSED CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP!!

......drum roll please......

Pacific Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup - it may not be Campbell's but it should make for a good stand in for your recipes.  Plus, it's organic!

From their website:

Quick, easy meals get a modern update.

A savory base of mushrooms combined with garlic and crème fraiche from our founder's farms deliver a delicious, robust flavor that your family is sure to love.  Get creative in the kitchen! As versatile as it is delicious, our Cream of Mushroom Soup is great as a base for soups, casseroles and sauces.

Here's the ingredients:

Filtered water
Organic mushrooms
Organic créme fraîche (organic cultured cream [milk])
Organic rice starch
Organic rice flour
Sea salt
Organic whey powder [milk]
Organic onion powder
Organic garlic powder

Contains: milk

I have not tried it yet... still deciding what to make.  Anyone have some vegetarian suggestions for condensed mushroom soup?


  1. I use Alymers mushroom soup made with cornstarch!

    1. Be careful with the no name. Because, sometimes I have found in the no name there are hidden ingredients. For me I am trying to buy more and more organic soups or I am making them and freezing them. Also, since I have high blood pressure, I can control the amount of salt that I use when I make it myself and I can make it as thick or as thin as I want.

    2. According to Alymers web site, their cream of mushroom soup contains wheat flour.

      This is Gluten free

  2. Thanks for the Alymers tip. Finding condensed cream of mushroom soup to cook with in Canada has been a nightmare for my daughter and I who were diagnosed celiac last spring. I can't be bothered to make it from scratch as I have been spending way too much time in the kitchen lately. Some convenience foods - like mushroom soup - would be handy to have in my pantry. I have heard that No Name brand (yuck) and Presidents Choice both make their canned mushrooms soups with corn starch as well, but I have not tried cooking with them yet. I would try Alymers or Presidents Choice before going with the No Name soup only as a last resort. My mother-in-law used to buy no name condensed cream of mushroom soup all the time and it didn't taste very nice - with a glue-like texture. Campbells would be my brand of choice, but it is nice to know that there are other 'normal' options for me on the grocery store shelves that don't cost a fortune. Thank-you again for the Alymers tip. I can't wait to start making some of our favorite recipes again :)

  3. I have tried this. It's REALLY good and well worth the purchase!

    They also have cream of celery and another flavor as well.

    It is higher in salt --or maybe Campbells was too and I never paid that much attention? I don't salt my pasta water if I'm making noodles for this sauce.

  4. What about gluten free tomato soup. Are there any out there?

    1. Campbells Tomato Basil is very good

  5. My daughter and I are both gluten free. We both enjoy cooking and experimenting. We made up a large pot of Bechamel Sauce, plain and mushroom(used dried assorted). Followed the Joy of Cooking recipe but used the ingredients listed later in this comment. Then divided it up into 1 cup containers and froze it. You would never know that it has been frozen once you defrost it. Non-GF people couldn't even taste the difference. We keep a container of the powder mixture handy for making all kinds of "sauces, gravies or anything that needs thickening". Recipe is: 1 cup brown rice flour, 3/4 cup tapioca flour and 3 TBSP potatoe flour. Mix well. Just use this as you would to make a white sauce/cheese sauce. Good Cooking.

  6. Just looked it up on Aylmer's website, http://www.aylmersoup.ca/aylmersoup/soups.aspx and the cream of mushroom has wheat flour in it as does the cream of celery. Definitely NOT gluten free even though it also contains cornstarch.

  7. where can you find this?

    1. I don't have a list of stores... I bought it at Max's Market on Bloor in Toronto.
