These gluten-free soup recipes are all delicious and will warm you on a cold day. Some of my family’s favorite recipes are among these soups. In fact, I think all of these are a favorite with one or more of use.
Many of these soup recipes are chowders, but don’t worry if you are dairy free. They all work with almond or cashew milk (and probably other substitutes as well). All of these recipes can be made dairy free, or you can add cheese to some if you prefer. I use milk substitutes when I make these for my family, and they love the recipes just as well.
Potato Chowder – This has been one of my family’s favorite soups for years. I use a mild sausage (but spicy works too) and either almond milk or cashew milk (but regular milk is fine). Trust me, this is a soup that will be a big hit.
Chicken and Broccoli Chowder – This chowder is also delicious with a milk substitute if needed. We all really like broccoli, so this is a hit with my family. It’s a great way to use leftover chicken.
Salmon Chowder – As you can see, we like chowder. This recipe calls for coconut milk so it’s naturally dairy free. I like using frozen Alaskan salmon that I buy at BJs. But since it has skin on it, I usually bake the salmon until almost done, remove the skin, then add it to the hot soup when called for. This is my favorite soup and the rest of my family really likes it too.
Taco Soup – This soup doesn’t require any special ingredients but you do need gluten-free taco seasoning. You can use as much seasoning as you like and add toppings to it if you want. My family adds cheese. This soup is a crowd pleaser.
Potato Corn Chowder with Bacon – I first made this soup in the summer when I had fresh corn, but it also works with frozen corn and is delicious any time of year. Of course, bacon makes anything good.
Potato Soup with Bacon – This soup is also a chowder, and the combination of potatoes and bacon is irresistible. For a more German style soup, add some vinegar, but it can be omitted for pickier eaters.
Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetable Soup – This soup works best in the slow cooker so the meat can get nice and tender.
Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup – I know that some people don’t like split pea soup, but it has always been one of my husband’s favorites. I learned to really enjoy it too. Sometimes I use my pressure cooker, but the slow cooker version is great too.
Winter Vegetable Soup – I admit that this picture is not as appealing, but the soup really is delicious. You can add sausage for a main dish (like in the photo) or not. Either way, it’s delicious.
Butternut Squash Soup – I add apple and sweet potato to my butternut squash soup, and I love the combination of flavors. This is a delicious vegetable dish.
