EGG ROLLS

This is a multi-step recipe:

- egg roll filling

- wrappers

- rolling and frying

EGG ROLL FILLING

(I made this the day before)

ingredients:

Marinade

3 T gluten-free soysauce

1 t cornstarch

1 T water

1 T oil

1/4 t sugar

3/4 lb ground meat (I used chicken)

4 T oil

1 T cooking wine

1/2 t sugar

5 cups shredded green cabbage (about 3/4 of average head)

3/4 t salt

1/2 cup shredded carrots

2 green onions, finely chopped

1 T cornstarch mixed with 3T chicken broth or water

Directions:

1. combine marinade, and add meat, mix and set aside

2. heat wok with 2 T oil, when hot, add meat and stir fry until color changes

3. add wine and sugar, stir fry another minute or two

4. transfer to bowl, set aside

5. wipe out wok, reheat with remaining 2 T oil

6. add cabbage and carrots, stir fry several minutes until wilted

7. add salt and green onions, stir fry one minute

8. return meat to wok, mix through

9. move mixture to sides of wok, leaving clearing in the center

10. remix cornstarch and water/broth and add to center of wok, stirring constantly

11. mix thoroughly

12. transfer to bowl to cool, can refrigerate day or two until ready to roll

EGG ROLL WRAPPERS

(this is essentially a crepe recipe...it works for this too)

ingredients:

4 large eggs

1 t salt

1 cup gluten-free flour (i use Bette Hagemans featherlight)

1 and 1/4 cup water

1 T oil

Directions:

1. Beat eggs with salt (I use cuisinart)

2. Add flour, mix well

3. Slowly add liquids, scrape sides of bowl if flour sticks

4. Pour into 1 quart measuring cup with spout and chill until bubbles go down (sometimes I don't bother to wait, but then the crepes have air holes in them)

5. To cook crepes, use 2 8-inch nonstick fry pans simultaneously (if you only have one, its OK, just takes longer)

6. heat pans over medium to medium-high heat, very lightly oil bottoms

7. when pans are hot, pour crepe batter into bottom, quickly swirl to coat bottom evenly, then pour off excess batter back. (you need to work quickly to avoid thick crepes - practice makes perfect)

8. when edges start to curl up and brown slightly, then tip pan bottom side up and bang on countertop to release crepe (sometimes you need a knife to release edges)

9. continue making crepes until all batter is used. Stack slightly cooled crepes ontop of each other like pancakes.

10. makes about 25-30 crepes

EGG ROLL ROLLING

ingredients:

egg roll wrappers (crepes)

egg roll filling

1 egg, beaten in small dish

directions:

1. have all ingredients on work counter

2. place one crepe in front of you, and spoon about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of filling about inch up from edge of crepe closest to you

3. bring bottom edge over filling and roll away from you one full turn

4. brush some egg over exposed edges of crepe

5. fold right and left sides of crepe over top, toward center

6. keep rolling upward/away from you until you have an tube-shaped roll

7. place on counter with seam-side down..egg will keep it sealed.

8. continue as above until you run out of crepes or filling (hopefully, you'll have about 25+ egg rolls)

9. Fry in 2 inches of hot oil (325 degrees) for a few minutes, until browned

10. drain on paper towels

11. can be frozen after frying - to reheat, just place in hot oven (400) for about 15-20 minutes

It's alot of work, but makes me happy! Enjoy..

Sara, It sounds yummy! :D I don't know if I want to go through trying to make enough wrappers to feed my large family.

Does anyone know of any brands of egg roll wrappers that are gluten-free? I know that the filipino lumpia wrappers are made from wheat and rice flour (and I was very disappointed to find this out, since it will make family parties harder). I have heard that I will have better luck finding rice based products at chinese asian markets. I just thought if I had a brand in mind when I went looking it would help in my search.

God bless,

Mariann

Mariann - you can use rice paper wrappers (look in an asian market or in the asian section of your grocery) They are extremely thin translucent circles about 8 inches across. they need to be dipped in water first (briefly) to soften, then roll in the filling. I've tried them - they are more like spring rolls than egg rolls though

gluten-free Kung Pao Chicken

Marinade:

2 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp gluten-free soysauce

2 tsp sherry

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1 egg white

3 - 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes

Vegetables of your choice (waterchestnuts, red or green bell peppers, zuchinni, carrots, broccoli, onions etc.) cut into 1 inch size pieces

dry roasted peanuts (optional)

Oil

Sauce:

5 TBSP gluten-free soy sauce

3 TBSP sherry

2 tsp sesame oil (I use toasted variety)

1 tsp sugar

2 TBSP water

1 TBSP cornstarch

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (omit if you don't like spicy, add more if you like it hot!)

Directions:

1. Cook rice of your choice, if desired. (that way it'll be done when stir fry is ready)

2. Mix marinade, and toss chicken cubes to coat. Let sit while preparing veggies

3. cut veggies

4. mix sauce, set aside

5. Cook chicken in oil over high heat, stirring often. ( I use a wok, but a big fry pan with high sides will do)

6. remove chicken, set aside

7. Add more oil to pan, if needed and stir fry veggies (start with ones that require the longest to cook - ie the carrots, broccoli, end with the quicker cooking ones - ie the peppers, mushrooms, zuchini)

8. Return chicken to pan

9. Stir sauce, then add to pan and stir constantly to coat everything

10. Toss in handful of peanuts, if desired, mix.

Serve immediately over rice, or lower heat to simmer until ready to serve.

Enjoy! Sara

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
