Ingredients in Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup

Butter - If you are dairy-free, consider using a dairy-free butter or olive oil.

Mushrooms - Baby Bella mushrooms, portobello mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, and shiitake mushrooms all work when making gluten-free cream of mushroom soup.

Onion - Use fresh onion (not dehydrated) for the best flavor. You can also use shallots to mix it up.

Garlic - Fresh garlic works best, but you can use garlic powder if you're in a pinch. One teaspoon should do the trick.

Gluten-Free Flour - I use my gluten-free flour blend or Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1. You can also use 4 tablespoons of cornstarch instead of gluten-free flour.

Broth - Chicken, Beef, and Veggie all work great.

Heavy Cream - You can use a high-fat, dairy-free alternative if you can't do dairy. Plain flavors work best.

Salt and Pepper - We like to add our salt to our liking as the canned version has a high amount of sodium in it unless you buy a low-sodium version. You can also add fresh herbs for a different flavor profile.

Equipment Needed for This Gluten-Free Cream Of Mushroom Soup

Large Saucepan - Used for sautéing the vegetables and simmering the soup.

Medium Mixing Bowl - Mixing bowls are used for whisking together the broth and gluten-free flour to ensure a smooth consistency.

Whisk - This is used to blend the broth and flour mixture, preventing lumps in the soup.
