Cook-in-the-Kitchen has 4 gluten-free soups which we tested and really enjoyed. We did add a few touches, more in the area of protein and an occasional chopped fresh vegetable, but it was not a necessity to add anything to their full flavor soups. We used their Welsh Potato soup as a base for our Clam Chowder—yum!

I can say my testers and I appreciated the ease and speed of getting a full-meal result. Just add hot water and in ten minutes, the hearty soup is ready.

Cook-in-the-Kitchen sent me 4 gluten-free items, Meals in Minutes gluten-free soups. But we’re hoping they develop more gluten-free products soon. The other items are not conducive to a gluten-free diet, but with a bit of creativity, I know they can adapt and offer more.

This family-owned and operated business in White River Junction, Vermont makes everything in small batches, as they have been for the past 20 years. They maintain a list of preservative-free ingredients. On their website you can rate and review their products. Tom Godwin, owner, appreciates and welcomes feedback, always looking for helpful recommendations.

At, we recommend “more gluten-free” to Tom!

  1. Wow that gluten free clam chowder sounds like a great idea! I’m going to try all four of their soups. Thanks for this recommendation!

  2. Hi Tina I look forward to trying these soups. I always like getting great soup “bases” to add my own vegetables and meats too. Yummy and easy too!

  3. The Dill and Tomato Soup was delicious! I liked the flavors – so tomato-y! It’s a Good meal every time. Also, the potato welsh Taste great! Makes a delicious side dish every time.

  4. The potato welsh is good, thick, and hearty. The lentil soup is just what I expected from lentil soup…very good taste.

  5. The lentil soup has nice texture. Lentil taste is prominent as well as the black pepper and veggies.
    The Dill and Tomato Soup is so thick and sweet! I wouldn’t expect this to be gluten free.

  6. For the Welsh potato soup, I added three minced garlic cloves, browned in olive oil. I then added cut up chicken breast. A tablespoon of butter and 3 cups of water and 1 cup of milk. This all resulted in a much thicker consistency soup, instead of a more liquid one.
    In the Mediterranean Lentil soup, I like to add browned garlic and brown rice noodles. It’s delicious and very filling!
    Lastly, I like to take the Harvest Garden Veggie Soup and add chicken breast, and 5 cups of water to the mix for a thicker consistency.
