How To Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup:
This hearty and satisfying soup is so easy prepare. I love that you can sauté right in the Instant Pot before turning it on to use as a pressure cooker. Simply chop you chicken and veggies, do a quick sauté on the SAUTE mode + 8 minutes on HIGH pressure, and then add your creamy base and greens. Quick enough to throw together on a busy weeknight when all you want to do is cover up with a soft blanket and hide from the cold.
So, Im dedicating this recipe to the wintertime homebody that lives inside you. Because warm, nourishing soup is simply the BEST on a chilly night.

Reasons To Make Vegetable Soups At Home
1.Soups are an easy way to boost the vegetable intake. Some grocery stores sell fresh soups which might contain fewer preservatives than soup in a can, but you should still beware of the hidden processed ingredients and not only.
Heat sensitive vitamins like vitamin C can be depleted from soup if it has been simmered for a long time. And usually soups are kept hot for customers convenience. Anything older than two to three hours will contain less vitamins than if the soup had been freshly made at home.
2.The cooking method of vegetables can affects the retention of vitamins. Some nutrients are better absorbed when a food has been heated rather than when eaten raw. Cooked carrots, have more absorb-able beta carotene than when eaten raw. Its the same for tomatoes.
3. By consuming the cooking water , youre keeping the water-soluble vitamins.
4.Provides easily digestible vitamins: a sensitive, damaged gut is unable to absorb nutrients from food effectively. Vegetable soups make the vitamins an minerals more absorb-able.
5.Homemade soup is perfect for weight loss, it will help you burn fat and increase your metabolism.
When you are striving to improve your health, keep the soup recipe simple. Im usually making my vegetable soups gluten free and dairy free, water based and not cream based with no excess carbs or meat. This makes them easier to digest especially for people who have food sensitivities / allergiesand gut problems.

Notes On Ingredients For This Gluten
- Tortilla I used Udis Gluten Free large plain tortillas. Theyre dairy, soy, and nut free too. I only needed one large tortilla to make enough for our 4 servings of soup, but if youre doubling or tripling the recipe, youll want to do the same with the tortilla strips. Easy, since they come 6 to a package! Note: these tortillas freeze well, so I put the leftover tortillas in the freezer so I can pull them out, thaw, and make tortilla strips again the next time we want this soup!
- Chicken Broth- Be sure to use a chicken broth that is clearly labeled gluten-free, or use your own homemade chicken stock. I use Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Broth. If you opt for a low-sodium version, be sure to taste your finished soup to make sure you dont need to add a bit of salt for flavor.
- Diced Tomatoes I prefer the petite diced tomatoes over the regular sized chunks. You can also use a can of petite diced with jalapeño instead of plain to give this soup some kick!
This is truly a 30 minute meal! I was running a stop watch while I cooked and prepared to serve. Even with writing the recipe down and adjusting seasonings as I worked, I still got it done in 30 minutes!

If Youre Following A Gluten And Dairy
Soup holds a very special place in my heart. It is the one food that connects me to childhood more than any other, simply because soup was an essential part of Romanian life. The idea of starting lunch without soup was unthinkable. It just wasnt done. Every household anywhere had pots of soup simmering nearly every day.
So today were talking about soup. And if youre following a gluten and dairy free lifestyle, youre in luck as Ive gathered 25 of the best gluten and dairy free soup recipes and want to share them with you all. But before we get to them, lets talk about soup. How it impacts digestion and why its really, REALLY good for you.
Does This Loaded Potato Soup Have Cream Cheese Or Heavy Cream In It
Yes it has cream cheese! Many potato soups use heavy cream, but I find cream cheese makes it thicker. I dont like a runnier soup. Plus, cream cheese is easy to switch out for those that need a dairy-free version.
I also dont use heavy cream because it could curdle in the instant pot. So, thats why I cook everything in broth, and then add the cream cheese once its done cooking.

How Soup Affects Digestion
Raw vegetables are great. Theyre healthy, nutritious but often times taxing on the body. And because we dont properly break down raw vegetables, some of the nutrients never actually make it into the system. However, once vegetables are cooked in broth and combined with spices and herbs, they become bio-available and easy on digestion.
Tips For Making The Best Gluten
- Chop carrots and celery at least Â¼-inch thick. If you chop your vegetables too thin, they can become mushy.
- If you like your noodles more al dente, cook them separately and then add the noodles to the soup once its cooked.
- The gluten-free noodles will absorb the broth. If you want more soup, add an additional 1-2 cups of gluten-free broth.
- Dont add the salt or the pepper until you have tasted the soup. A lot of the time broth can already be salty.
- Its easy to change up the vegetables. You just want to make sure you cook them until they are soft.
- You can use one chopped onion in place of the onion powder if you like. My family does not like the texture of chopped onions thats why I use onion powder.
- If you are not feeding a large family like mine and you do not want leftovers, you can easily cut the recipe in half.
- If you want a creamy chicken noodle soup, you can swap out the broth for a cup or two of milk.

Is Campbells cream of chicken soup gluten free? Absolutely not!
We are lucky to have a few gluten free canned cream of chicken soups at our grocery stores, but I still prefer making my own most of the time.

What Ingredients Do You Need You Make Gluten Free Cream Of Chicken Soup
Making cream of chicken soup gluten free is quick and easy.
It takes less than ten minutes, and you only need a few ingredients.
To make gluten free condensed cream of chicken soup youll need:
- Oil or butter. I like using olive oil because it adds a subtle fruity flavor, and is a healthy cooking oil. If you are making your cream of chicken soup with dairy, butter should be your first choice.
- Cooked, shredded chicken. Leftover rotisserie chicken, or even drained canned chicken will work! You can also chop up some raw chicken and cook it until golden brown right in the pan.
- Gluten free flour. The gluten free flour acts as the thickener to make the gluten free roux. I used my gluten free flour blend, but you can use just rice flour, or any gluten free flour blend in your pantry. Youll have best results if you use a gluten free flour that doesnt have xanthan or guar gum in it.
- Broth. I used chicken broth however, if you prefer you can use vegetable broth.
- Milk. I used an unsweetened plain coconut milk this time, but Ive used unsweetened plain almond milk in the past. You can also use dairy milk, or lactose free milk. As long as you dont use a sweetened vanilla flavored milk, you should be set.
- Salt and pepper. Essential if you dont want your soup to taste bland.
