Gluten Free Low Calorie French Onion and Mushroom Soup
I love soup. It is a quick, warm, yummy way to pack a lot of nutritious veggies into one satisfying meal. When I went gluten free I quickly realized that most canned soups were off limits to me. The few brands that were gluten free were wildly expensive or did not have many flavor choices. Canned soups also pack in way too much sodium and other unnecessary additives. So I went on an adventure through the produce department and was off on a quest to make my own homemade soups. One of my favorite soups has always been french onion. The rich broth and soft veggies with garlicy croutons and creamy white cheese make my mouth very happy. I had no idea where I was going to find a good garlic crouton to finish off this dish until I won a facebook contest from Glutino. In the gift basket was a box of Glutino garlic and parmesan bagel chips. They worked perfectly! If you have been craving a simple gluten free french onion soup, this should hit the spot. If there are other soups you would like to see my make gluten free leave me a comment. I always love a challenge!
- Slice mushrooms and onions.
- In a medium sauce pan combine all ingredients.
- Simmer on medium low until veggies are tender.I like to simmer for an hour so the flavors meld well.
- Optional top with Glutino Parmesan and Garlic Bagel Chips and 2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
