Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

cream of mushroom soup2 cream of mushroom soup

I enjoy love those old school recipes.  The kind that the manufacturer puts on their box, can, labels, etc.   It’s reminds me of a time when I was young and watched reruns of the Cleavers and the Cunningham’s getting together around a table for dinner eating some fabulous casserole that the Moms whipped up.  It seems as though there was a time when practically every recipe calls for a can or two of Cream of Mushroom Soup.  I have seen professional cooks with television shows open a can of that congealed soup for recipes as well.  As you may know, this is just not friendly for anybody with Celiac Disease or has Gluten Sensitivity; but I am also noticing a food trend that some people are seeking out alternatives to those canned soups.  Not that they are giving up the traditional recipes that they make with it, just not wanting to get it through a can.  In the future I will be posting another recipe for Cream of Mushroom Soup that is made completely from scratch.  However, I wanted to share this Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup, using Whisk Bliss Gluten Free, because it is very quick and easy. Whisk Bliss Gluten Free Its easy to store in your pantry, and it is convenient to for your cream based soup recipes.  I find that a bag last me a lot longer than I thought it would and I highly recommend it.  Please check out my Whisk Bliss Product Review for me information regarding this incredible product.


Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe
Gluten Free Alternative to canned Cream of Mushroom Soup
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 ½ Tbsp butter
  • 3 Large White Mushrooms, what whatever type you have on hand.
  • ½ cup of Whisk Bliss
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock (or water if you don’t have any stock on hand)
  • ½ tsp Poultry Seasoning
  • ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
  • Pinch of Thyme
  1. Finely chop mushrooms. In a small pan, sauté mushrooms until they are nice and golden brown. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan add stock (or water). Lightly whisk in the Whisk Bliss. Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 5 minutes. As soon as the mushrooms are done, you can add them to the Whisk Bliss Mixture at any time during the process. Make sure they are fully incorporated.
  2. I prefer to let my cream of mushroom soup stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes then put it in a storage container and refrigerate for a few hours before using. However, I can tell you many, many, MANY times I did not make this product in advance of needing it and used it immediately after making.

Ultimate Bliss!! – Shirley J Gluten Free Whisk Bliss Product Review

In Gilbert Arizona, there is a wonderful little store called the Gluten Free Country Store.  As you can guess by the name, they cater to the needs of the Gluten Free community in the Metro Phoenix area.  I truly feel lucky that I can hop into my car and go to a place where I know I can eat anything within an entire store.  Okay, I haven’t eaten everything in the store, but I do know that not everybody with Celiac’s Disease can actually say they could eat everything within a store.  But trust me… with the foods they have… it’s VERY tempting.

Some days I just like to drive down there and walk around and look at what new products they have.  One day I was doing just that am a product caught my attention.. Shirley J’s Whisk Bliss Gluten Free. The bag says it all…

“A universal cooking base”

“Use in place of cream sauces, canned-creamed soup, milk or other cream sauce components in any of your favorite recipes”

Did the Angels come down and drop a bag of heaven in my basket… well probably not.  But let’s face it… I am an “old school” kind of gal.  How many recipes do I have that call for a forbidden “cream of something” soup?  I couldn’t even begin to count.  In my hands was a product that promised me a quick GF alternative!!!  Thinking of all the tasty recipes of my past, which I cannot enjoy now that I am Gluten Free, I greedily placed the large bag into my basket and rushed to check out.

Upon returning home, I started to have doubts that Shirley J is legitimate.   Wondering if I have been fooled yet again.  I have fallen prey to a pretty package and promise to give Gluten Free options to a food desire of mine?  There is only one way to find out… Saying to myself “Shirley J, Girl, don’t let me down!!”

The directions are so simply.  Measure 1 part whisk bliss, Add 4 parts water, whisk lightly, bring to a slow boil and simmer for 5 minutes.  TA-DAAAAAA!!   Fine, there is no Ta-Da on the package, but there should have been.

In the end… Shirley J was legit!!  What a quick way to have a cream base.  I have played around with this product and have tried a few of Shirley J’s recipes as well.  Please check back for recipe postings using this delightful product… that is when you are not too busy walking down the aisles of your regular grocery stores, thumbing your nose at those little cans of your past, saying “HA!  I don’t need you anymore!”   You know the ones that make you sicker than a dog but that offer condensed soup convenience in the kitchen.  Well that is just too high of a cost for me… Trust me Shirley J has got your back!!

If you do not have the option of strolling down the to the Gluten Free Country Store in Gilbert Arizona, please know that you can purchase this product online through one of my favorite websites.. AMAZON.COM!!  Shirley J has a wide selection of NON gluten free products so please make sure you get the Whisk Bliss Gluten Free.
