This is a multi-step recipe:

- egg roll filling

- wrappers

- rolling and frying


(I made this the day before)



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


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


(this is essentially a crepe works for this too)


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


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 wrappers (crepes)

egg roll filling

1 egg, beaten in small dish


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 - 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


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)



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!)


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

    • Celiac in kids?
      First post here... i have a 2.5 yo son and an 8 mo daughter. We had my son tested 6 months ago for food allergies and it came back with many allergies including barley and wheat. We have been trying to go gluten-free since this point. We believe that when he eats gluten, he has difficulties pooping.  Now, we just introduced my daughter to solids and she too is having difficulties pooping. I know it could be other things as well.  I just want to see if anyone else out there has young kids that might have similar issues. This is all new to us and we are thinking of having us all tested to see if we have celiacs.  Other allergies my son has is to dairy, soy, garlic, eggs and animal dander.  Thanks for any of your thoughts. We are feeling a little lost here. 
    • Pie Crust Recipes
      Hi there: as you have found, water balance is key to a great pie crust. Here is the recipe I like best, and I've tried many. It's flavorful and actually is flaky! If you follow the directions to the letter I believe you will have success. I usually mix mine by hand to get a sense for the dryness of the flour and how much water to add by the teaspoon to get the right texture; you might try this for a while instead of using the food processor. A short rest in the refrigerator also helps immensely, since it gives the flour a chance to absorb the water and the starches to soften, making it easier to roll out. Making pie dough is an art and a hands-on approach helps the overall product, in my opinion. That's the way my grandma did it and she made unbelievably delicious pie. Good luck--you'll get it!  P.S. I just looked at your recipe. I'm not sure why but I haven't ever had much luck with Carol Fenster's recipes, unfortunately, so don't feel bad! 
    • New to Celiac!
      I had a few meltdowns in the grocery store at first, walking out empty handed. Of course I lived on junk food before going gluten-free and the idea of eating plain whole foods seemed foreign to me. I'm not much of a cook! Definitely, eating out is the hardest part. Being spontaneous is going to have to be a thing of the past. While I always carry non-perishable gluten-free food in my purse for those "just in case" times, it's hard to carry a whole meal. (Lara bars are good but not THAT filling.) That means planning ahead. If you either eat before you go, after you go, or even bring food to eat while there, you pretty much need to know you ARE going ahead of time. So I keep the freezer full of individual meals that can be thawed or cooked in the microwave at a moment's notice. That can mean a one bowl meat/rice/veggie dish, some Against the Grain frozen pizza, or even a sandwich on gluten-free bread. Depending on where you live there might actually be a safe restaurant or two in your area. Of course unless they are a totally gluten-free facility there is always a chance of getting glutened no matter how safe their practices are. I think I just read here the other day about someone finding a crouton in the bottom of their salad bowl. Mostly it doesn't happen but there aren't too many of us who haven't been glutened at a "safe" restaurant at least once. Also, I have seen that some folks have trouble talking their friends into eating at only those places that have gluten-free menus and safe practices. That's why not only do you need to educate your family, but your friends too. If they care about you they will listen, learn about, and heed your need for safe gluten-free foods. Another thing to think about - if you're out shopping with your friends and it takes longer than anticipated, instead of relying on a Lara bar or two, there is usually a grocery store nearby. You can run in and pick up something there. Fresh fruit, certain cold cuts, a pre-made salad (as long as there are no croutons), even a bag of Lay's potato chips. Once you've become experienced at reading labels you can be assured of eating safely. Kraft products and Con-Agra (and a few others) will ALWAYS list any gluten ingredients on their labels. Those are big parent companies that have many many brands under their names. It will take you a while but before you know it, all this will become second nature to you. I promise.
    • Pie Crust Recipes
      Hello there. I made an entire recipe book with all kinds of gluten free fool proof recipes. I usualy use coconut flour from Bob's Red Mill. I find it works the best. Also, you can use regular all purpose flour. 2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 8 Tb butter (chilled), 1 large egg (lightly beaten), 8-10 Tb ICED water.
    • Restless Legs Syndrom (rls)
      RLS is significantly more prevalent among the celiac population than the general population, so I think there's definitely a correlation. Unfortunately, it doesn't aways go away once you go gluten free. There's also a link between RLS and inflammation, and, for me at least, most of my post-glutening symptoms can be linked back to generalized inflammation.  For me, RLS is one of the first indications for me that I've been glutened (right after arthritis/muscle aches and dry mouth), though it's more of a "restless body syndrome" since it doesn't confine itself to my legs. I'm fortunate that it goes away as long as I'm gluten-free, I know many people aren't so lucky. This last time (currently recovering from being glutened at Thanksgiving *sigh*) I ended up getting up and playing video games till 4 in the morning. In retrospect, I probably could have used that time to do dishes or something more productive... Only thing that ever works for me is to get up and move around and stretch as much as possible, I've been known to do some 2 am yoga, I know my dad used to go for walks around the neighborhood. Don't resist it, don't lay in bed and try to stay still, I really think that's the worst thing you can do. Get up and use your muscles and tire them out and hopefully that will help. If you have flexibility in where you have to be and when the next day, you can always try to do productive things and then sleep in once things have calmed down. Otherwise, caffeinate the next day and hope the next night will be better.
