Try Making a Gluten Free Soup

Gluten free soups make a delicious appetizer, especially during cold winter days. Soups are usually very easy to make and there are plenty of options. Most vegetables blend well in soups, you can have a look at our gluten free soups and stews category for some recommendations.

Even though we suggest you making your own soup as it will contain the most nutrients, gluten free soups can also be bought in supermarkets.

If you are planning to buy your soup in the supermarket, you need to be careful because some soups are not gluten free. It might sound odd, but many canned soups contain gluten ingredients, frequently in the form of thickeners. Especially in cream soups, wheat flour can be used instead of cream.

Soup manufacturers are aware of the growing popularity of the gluten-free diet and this has lead to the production of many gluten-free soups. Most of the soup producers will label their soups as gluten free, so you just need to check the packaging and make sure it is gluten free certified.

 

Gluten Free Starters

The only limit in creating gluten-free dishes is your imagination. A gluten-free diet does not have to be plain and boring.

On a gluten free diet, you can still enjoy your favorite starters or appetizers just with simple modifications. For example, if you liked to have pizza slides as an appetizer, you just have to substitute the regular flour (which is usually wheat and contains gluten) by a non-gluten flour.

Another example is the pan-fried chicken as it is usually breaded with flour. For achieving a gluten free breading, you can follow this recipe for Gluten-Free Schnitzel Bites which make a great gluten free starter.
