I have my Chinese cookbooks and recipes and just use them substituting gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free teriyaki sauce. Some recipes I can't make as they call for gluten ingredients but Pepper Steak, Beef and Broccoli, and some like that are fine. I need to find a way to make Kung Pao Chicken though as my recipe calls for Black Bean Sauce, Chili Paste and Hoison sauce which all have gluten. I'm scared to death to go to a Chinese restaurant now, so I bought the short grain rice and an electric wok and am having fun. You must keep a positive attitude and look on the bright side. (Think of how much less fat and sodium in the meals you make yourself!) But it is hard!

Aside from black bean sauce, I've had no real problems substituting gluten-free ingredients in Chinese recipes.

Most Chinese recipes calling for noodles can easily, and un-noticably be substituted with rice flour or tapioca noodles, which can also be found in Asian markets.

The gluten-free pantry on-line store has some gluten-free Hoisin sauce and for chili paste you can use Sambal.... I am almost sure its' gluten-free, but it's really, really spicy. I use it for soups sometimes to give it a kick, and for a gallon of soup, I only use about 1 tsp of the sambal. As far as the black bean paste goes, my mother in law has made her own, but I think it's rather time consuming because it has to ferment for a while, but my husband says that you can buy the fermented black beans, then pound them down yourself and add the garlic to your liking. I would assume you could only buy these at fairly large Asian markets though.

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
