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

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
