Gluten Free Corned Beef and Cabbage Bean Soup

Gluten Free Corned Beef and Cabbage Bean Soup Recipe

Even though I was deprived of corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day, I was not about to be deprived of my second favorite St. Paddy’s day recipe – Gluten Free Corned Beef & Cabbage Bean Soup.

This gluten free recipe came about as a way of using up leftovers in a manner that was similar but not the same as the previous day’s meal. It was such a hit I started planning for the next day’s meal ahead of time; I would put some dried beans on to soak while the corned beef and cabbage was simmering away.

With no leftovers this year I had to cheat a little. There was no “pot liqueur” from the corned beef to create the soup stock base so instead I used a packet of Hurst Family Harvest Tri-bean Soup mix; beans and soup stock all in one – genius! And since I didn’t have a lot of time to soak the beans overnight, I did a quick soak method – just cover the beans with an inch or two of water, bring to a boil and let boil for about 10 minutes then let them sit for an hour. Drain and rinse the beans and you are good to go!

I picked up a pound of already prepared corned beef from the deli counter (make sure it is gluten free, Boar’s Head is a good choice) which was on sale and told the deli guy not to slice it. Then all I needed to add was some carrots, baby onions, cabbage and a bit of seasoning.

If you have leftover corned beef and cabbage just chop it up and toss into the soup during the last few minutes to warm through.

Whether you have left over corned beef and cabbage or not, this is a hearty soup, packed with flavor. I am sure my foremothers would approve!

    Great looking “soup” looks more like a stew thought! But I thought we only had to worry about getting gluten from bread and pasta?

      If only it were that easy! Unfortunately gluten can hide in all sorts of places, it is a good habit to always read labels if you are not sure. And I agrre, much more like a stew :)

    Looks uber delish. I love your website. The correlation between corned beef and cabbage and St. Pat’s/the Irish always reminds me of that old movie with Brad Pitt and Harrison Ford. Pitt plays an Irish dissident who ends up staying in Ford’s house. Ford’s wife serves corned beef and cabbage for Pitt’s first night at supper and he frankly replies, “Never heard of it.” Makes me wonder. I have an Irish friend, a physicist no less, who claims the Irish have never ever said “Top of the morning.” Anybody know if corned beef and cabbage is really Irish. Not that I care: this gluten free version looks amazing just the same. Thanks for this.
