Life Without Six

Life without the "Top 6 Allergens" can be difficult. T offers recipes, product and restaurant reviews as well as shopping guides to take some of the bite out of grabbing a bite on a restrictive diet.

Recipe: Cream of Turkey Soup

Cream soups might seem impossible without milk in your diet, but Coconut Milk, Dairy Free and Rice Milk can re-open many of the same delicious tastes you miss.  T has a celery allergy that means we need to make our stocks from scratch.  If you can eat Carrots, Celery and Onion, you can probably buy stock from the supermarket, but we make ours from scratch.

Soup Stock:


  • 1 Onion (Rough Chopped)
  • 1 Cup Carrots (Rough Chopped)
  • 3 Potatoes (Rough Chopped)
  • 1 Cup Leeks (Sliced)
  • Bones

In a Slow Cooker mix all the ingredients and cover with water.  Set to low and cook for 8 hours.  Strain and retain the stock for later use.  You can use uncooked (bone-in) meat instead of bones if you prefer.

Cream of Turkey Soup:


  • 1 Onion (Finely Chopped)
  • 1 Cup Carrots (Finely Chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Margarine (Coconut Butter or Lard)
  • 1/4 Cup Rice Flour (All Purpose Gluten Free)
  • 5 Cups Turkey Stock
  • 2 Cans Coconut Cream
  • 1 Cup Turkey (White Meat, Rough Chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper

Melt Margarine (or substitute) in Medium Stock Pot.  Soften (but do not brown) Onion and Carrots.  Add Flour and mix thoroughly.  Slowly add Coconut Cream and 2 Cups of the Stock stirring frequently.  Add Seasoning, Turkey and remaining Stock and set to simmer for 30 minutes.  Add additional seasonings to taste.

D’s Review: I like it, but think it would be helped by noodles or dumplings.  Might try to add a few other seasonings, or even a dash of hot sauce.

T’s Review: It’s amazing! It tastes very much like my Marmee’s Chicken Noodle Soup, except no chicken or noodles.  Just a hint of coconut flavor.  If you are not a fan of coconut, don’t be scared.  The coconut only serves to make it creamy.

Bear: Mmmmm… <slurp> mmm… <lick> mmmm… <slurp>
