    Fortune® Gluten-Free Udon, Soba Buckwheat, and Ramen Noodles—A Product Review

    Celiac.com Sponsor: Review
    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

      I added my own vegetables and meat to each, and the end product tasted like something from a fine Japanese restaurant.

    Fortune Partially Cooked Gluten-Free Noodles.

    Celiac.com 08/22/2019 - One thing I've missed dearly since going gluten-free almost 25 years ago are udon and ramen noodles. I used to love eating both, and until now, haven't discovered a proper substitute for either.

    All that changed when my shipment of Fortune brand noodles arrived. Finally I can have a bowl of proper gluten-free udon noodles, soba buckwheat noodles, or ramen noodles!

    Fortune makes the following four varieties of easy-to-prepare gluten-free noodles, and each includes a flavor packet and can be prepared in just a few minutes:

    • Udon Garlic Chicken Flavor
    • Soba Buckwheat Shoyu Flavor
    • Ramen Miso Pork Flavor
    • Red Rice Ramen Shoyu Flavor

    All four flavors were outstanding, and after cooking the noodles per the directions on the package, each came out perfectly. The noodles were just like I remembered and had a chewy, elastic texture that instantly brought back memories that I thought were gone forever. 

    I added my own vegetables and meat to each, and in just a few minutes I had a meal that tasted like something from a fine Japanese restaurant. The Soba Buckwheat noodles, in particular, reminded me of the pure buckwheat soba noodles that I had in a restaurant a couple of years ago while on a trip to Japan.

    There are also stir fry directions for those who prefer to eat their noodles in a dry, stir fried style. 

    I was also glad to discover that these products were made in the U.S.A.

    You can find Fortune Gluten Free Noodles in the Dry Asian section of your grocery store.

    For those who miss Asian noodles as much as I did, your ship has finally arrived!

    As a kid, shrimp was one of my perpetual favorite foods. If something had shrimp in it, I'd probably eat try it. Shrimp is the reason I first tried gumbo, teriyaki, scampi, fried rice and coconut curry.
    I think that the vast majority of my exposure to international cuisine came out of my love for the lowly, bottom-dwelling, water bug that is the shrimp. I still one them to this day. This recipe grabs them hot off the grill and tosses them into a pile of rice noodles in a delicious Southeast-Asian inspired sauce. This is a great way to dip your culinary toes in Asian waters without breaking the bank or freaking out the taste buds of more timid eaters...

    Soba is a Japanese classic. These noodles were originally made with pure buckwheat, which is naturally gluten-free. These days, you can still find pure buckwheat soba noodles at many Asian grocers, or online.
    This version marries gluten-free pure buckwheat noodles, steak, snow peas, and a few other simple ingredients to deliver dish that pays homage to soba's traditional roots.
    1 package (8.8 ounces) soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles) 1 pound skirt steak, cut to fit in skillet 1 pound snow peas, stem ends removed 2 large shallots, thinly sliced and separated into rings 6 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 2 scallions, finely chopped...

    Celiac.com 03/03/2015 - You can make this with rice noodles or pure buckwheat soba noodles. The key is to cook the noodles only until they're halfway done, and then remove them from the hot water. They should be pliable, but still firm in the center. Pan-frying will finishes the cooking process. Add chicken, or shrimp, and you have the makings of a great meal.
    6-8 ounces of boneless chicken chunks, or cleaned, shelled and deveined shrimp 6 ounces gluten-free buckwheat soba, or rice noodles 2 large eggs, beaten 3 tablespoons soy sauce, more to taste 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 2 teaspoons rice wine or rice vinegar 1 teaspoon...

    Here's a dish that makes an excellent alternative to standard dinner fare. Aside from a bit of chopping, it's easy to make, healthy and delicious. Glass noodles give this dish a naturally gluten-free appeal.
