Hearty Chili (dairy + gluten free)

Years ago, my husband and I watched cooking shows on TV almost religiously. When we still had cable, it was on Food Network just about constantly. One night we happened to be watching a chili cookoff and started talking about how we'd make the "perfect" chili recipe. This recipe was born almost immediately afterward and has been made more times than we can count.

Homestyle Potato Soup {dairy + gluten free}

While we were just recently blessed with a few 60-70 degree days (in January!) I knew it wouldn't last long. February always seems to be the most brutal month here in the Midwest. You'd think after 30+ years now I would be used to it and know it isn't worth complaining about. Nope. Still complaining.

About this time of year is when I break out all of my tried and true soup recipes. There is nothing like a warm, hearty bowl of soup to make you feel cozy in an otherwise bleak and blustery season. Potato soup has always been a favorite of mine, but as you can imagine it typically is chock full of dairy and gluten. My version is so creamy and full of flavor, you won't be missing a thing.

Homestyle Potato Soup {dairy + gluten free} by Making it Milk-free

Homestyle Potato Soup {dairy + gluten free}

  • 6-8 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 2 whole carrots, sliced lengthwise and diced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free all purpose flour (or cornstarch)
  • 2 cups chicken stock 
  • 2 cups dairy-free milk of choice
  • 4-5 large Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley, optional
In a large pot over medium heat, brown the diced bacon until crispy. Remove from pot with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain the grease. Reserve the bacon grease in the pot. Add onion, carrots and celery and allow to cook a minute or two until translucent, then add garlic. 

Whisk in the gluten-free flour and allow it to cook for one minute. Add the chicken stock and continue whisking until lumps are gone. Stir in the dairy-free milk, then add the potatoes and the cooked bacon. Turn temperature to medium low and allow soup to simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. 

For added creamy texture, mash some of the potatoes in the soup. I like to leave about half the potatoes in bite-sized pieces. Stir in the cultured coconut milk yogurt and season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve alongside your favorite gluten-free dinner rolls.

Cream of Celery Soup {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #soup

So many recipes call for Cream of [insert food item here] Soup, it seems almost impossible to make them dairy- and gluten-free and still keep the integrity of the recipe. Since the canned version is out of the question for us, I am always looking for a healthy, safe recipe to replace this item.

Kale Noodle Soup {top 8 + gluten free}

With the mid-western winter weather upon us, I've been in the mood for a delicious soup to make being cooped up at home even warmer and cozier.

Summer Corn Chowder {Gluten Free & Vegan}

I have been intrigued by Panera Bread's Summer Corn Chowder. Unfortunately it is full of dairy and gluten and does not meet our dietary needs. So I decided I would make my own safe version. Most of the similar recipes I found included a base with cream, butter and flour. I instantly knew that I could recreate a creamy texture with So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk.

The culinary coconut milk is an 11-ounce container formulated to work in recipes calling for a 14-ounce can of coconut milk, so if you can't find the So Delicious Dairy Free version, just use a can of full-fat coconut milk instead. There is also a Lite version that contains the same ingredients but has a lower calorie and fat count. I like the thickness of the Original and this chowder is filled with so many veggies, that it doesn't pack a ton of calories to begin with.

Summer Corn Chowder {Gluten Free & Vegan}

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 small white onion, diced
1 medium bell pepper, diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp each fresh thyme, oregano, and chives, finely chopped
3 cups stock
3 ears sweet corn, kernels removed from cobs
2 small-medium yellow potatoes, diced
1 container So Delicious Original Culinary Coconut Milk
Salt & pepper to taste

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat olive oil over medium. Add onion, bell pepper, zucchini, garlic, and herbs. Saute until vegetables begin to soften and become translucent. Add stock and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add corn, potatoes and Culinary Coconut Milk.

Simmer for another 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. If you want a thicker base, lightly mash the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I love to sprinkle in a few crushed red pepper flakes and enjoy this sweet and savory chowder with a side of cornbread muffins.
