Necessity is the Mother of Invention | Food Allergies Are the Mother of Creative Recipes
This recipe came from my need to have a staple comfort food for Thanksgiving – Green Bean Casserole. My son is allergic to garlic and the fried onions were still safe, however I couldn’t use the cream of mushroom soup called for in this classic American Thanksgiving dish.
Homemade Chicken Broth from Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
Due to our garlic allergy, we have to make all our soup from scratch. The week prior to Thanksgiving I made a simple crockpot chicken noodle soup and saved remaining broth to have enough to make both this recipe and some gravy.
Simple Whole Organic Ingredients
For my broth I simply had chicken breasts, water, carrots, celery, salt, pepper, basil and oregano.
I stored the reserved broth in the fridge, in a canning jar with screw top lid for about 4-5 days prior.
Upon being ready to use in our Thanksgiving Day recipes, I just grabbed the jar from the fridge and measured out what I needed! That easy.
Quicker, Easier, Allergy Friendly, Healthier and YUMMIER!
Make a simple roux which is equal parts butter and flour, and then mix in chicken broth, milk and add a little pepper to taste. That’s it! It took me less than 10 minutes and while that’s more time than cracking open a can of soup from the store, it was allergy friendly, healthier, and quite frankly not only did the cream of soup taste better – my green bean casserole tasted better than ever too!
Use This in Place of Any Recipe Calling for a Can of “Cream of” Condensed Soup
Many crockpot AKA slow cooker, casserole, and other recipes often call for a cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, or other “cream of” soup. This recipe is the perfect substitute for any 10oz can called for.
Allium Free Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup | Garlic & Onion Free
- 1/4 C Salted Butter
- 1/4 C All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 C Chicken Broth
- 1/2 C Whole Milk
- 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
In a medium sized frying pan, over medium high heat, melt butter. Whisk flour into butter until smooth, creating a roux for your soup.
Continue to whisk while pouring in chicken broth, followed by milk.
Allow to cook until thickened to consistency of a traditional "canned cream of" soup.
Add ground black pepper, whisking until well combined.
Use in place of any canned condensed soup called for in a recipe such as "green bean casserole".
