    Ingredients:

    Photo: CC--miss karenFor the Filling:

    • 1 Tablespoon + 1 ½ teaspoons cooking oil, divided
    • 3 eggs, beaten
    • 1 head Napa cabbage, finely shredded or chopped
    • 1/2 carrot, julienne cut (matchsticks)
    • 1 recipe Chinese Barbecue Pork*, julienne cut, (or left over chicken w/BBQ sauce)
    • 2 shallots (green onions), thinly sliced (or 2 Tablespoon minced yellow onion)
    • Handful of sprouts (optional)
    • Handful of mushrooms, julienne sliced (optional)
    • 1 Tablespoon gluten free soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sugar or evaporated cane juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon superfine sea salt
    • For the Wrappers:
    • 1 package Three Ladies Rice Papers, square or round
    • Filtered water
    • 1 7/8 cups white rice flour
    • 4 large egg yolks
    • 2 cups cow's milk, (or dairy-free susbsitute)
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 2 quarts or more of cooking oil for deep-frying


    Instructions:

    1. Set your chopped cabbage in a colander; squeeze out as much excess water as you can.
    2. On medium heat, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of oil in a wok or large skillet.
    3. Pour in beaten eggs and scramble. Set aside to cool and then chop.
    4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil in the same pan and preheat.
    5. Add the carrots, and onion, if using yellow onion; cook for 2 minutes.
    6. Add cabbage and cook for 3 more minutes.
    7. Add the pork, green onions (if using), soy sauce, salt, and sugar; continue cooking until the vegetables soften, about 6 minutes.
    8. Add chopped egg and toss.
    9. Spread the mixture out onto a baking sheet and refrigerate to cool, about 1 hour. You'll find the juices will be absorbed once cooled. If not using immediately, cover once cooled and keep refrigerated. Use within 2-3 days.
    10. Add the flour to a large bowl.
    11. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks, salt and sugar; add milk and whisk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk thoroughly; set aside.
    12. Fill a baking sheet with about 2 cups of room temperature water. Soak one rice paper in the water, right before you are about to fill one, for 5 seconds (as suggested by Three Ladies brand). Do not over soak. The paper will still appear hard, but will soften very soon. Place it on a damp tea towel. Do not use paper towels or they will stick to it. Rewet the towel as needed.
    13. If using square rice papers, place one in front of you so that it appears as a diamond shape. If using round ones, it doesn't matter. Add 3-3 1/2 tablespoons of filling close to the bottom. An ice cream scoop with spring action works well for this. Roll towards the middle and stop. Fold in the left and right corners. Then roll all the way to the top edge.
    14. When you are almost done with rolling, preheat a deep-fryer or pan filled with 2" of oil to 375°F. A deep-fryer works best, as it is difficult to keep the temperature even over the stove. However, it can be done. Note that when you add the egg rolls to the oil the temperature drops significantly, especially if the egg rolls just came out of the refrigerator.
    15. Using metal tongs, dip one at a time into the batter, shaking off excess; gently drop as many as can comfortably fit into the hot oil; turning occasionally.
    16. Deep-fry for about 7 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. They may look brown enough at 5 minutes, but they will not be crisp enough.
    17. Drain on paper towels, and serve warm with your favorite sauce. I used half of the thickened sauce from my Chinese BBQ Pork recipe* and half of my Tomato-Free Barbecue Sauce recipe*.

    I intend to try this recipe, but will leave out the part about:

    1 7/8 cups white rice flour

    4 large egg yolks

    2 cups cow's milk, (or dairy-free substitute)

     

    I have no idea what place that has in this recipe? If you leave that out, it looks fantastic!!! Thank you so much for pointing out the Three Ladies Rice Papers, I didn't know these existed, I love the sound of these!!!!! YUM.

    These recipes come to us from Jeanne Barkemeijer de Wit.
    I discovered that molasses and salt tastes a lot like soy sauce. (To me at least) Ive built a number of sauces around a core of ingredients. Basically I use variations containing varying amounts of balsamic vinegar, dark unsulfered molasses, fruits, turbanado (raw) sugar and sea salt. Here are a few of my recipes:
    Sweet and Sour Sauce
    16 oz Pureed Strawberries (or other pureed fruit - fresh or canned)
    1 cup turbanado (raw) sugar (For a sweeter taste add a can of frozen condensed fruit juice syrup. I like using Bacardis strawberry frozen margarita concentrate, but any frozen strawberry concentrate will work.)
    8-16 ounces of sweet bell pepper - chopped
    1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic (or gluten-free powdered substitute)
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 oz molasses
    Combine all ingredients, pour over chicken, beef, or pork. Cook for 2 hours at 340 degrees. I sometimes add fresh strawberries to the dish an hour before cooking is finished.
    Alternative Soy Sauce
    8 oz molasses, 3 oz. balsamic vinegar, sugar to taste.
    Teriyaki Sauce
    Add pureed pineapple (or strawberries) to the above Bar-B-Que sauce
    16 oz stewed tomatoes pureed
    16 oz molasses
    6 oz balsamic vinegar
    teaspoon fresh crushed black pepper
    table spoon crushed garlic
    16 oz canned peaches - pureed
    sweet red peppers to taste
    1 cup turbanado (raw) sugar
    1 cup green onions
    Combine all ingredients in large pot and cook for about an hour. If you want a thicker sauce you can add a tablespoon of corn starch, or cook the entire mixture at a slow boil (stirring frequently) until it reduces to the consistency you desire.

    This recipe comes to us from "pinkpei77" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    Ingredients:
    1 container firm tofu
    1 egg substitute for 1 egg
    1 cup cornstarch
    Vegetable oil for frying
    4 chopped green onions
    1 tablespoon chopped ginger
    1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    2/3 cup vegetable broth/stock
    2 tablespoon s gluten-free soy sauce
    4 tablespoon s sugar
    Red pepper flakes ( to taste)
    1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    Steamed broccoli
    Directions:
    Drain, dry and cut tofu into 1 inch chunks. You can freeze tofu the night before to get a more chicken-like consistency, but it isnt necessary. Mix the egg replacer as specified on the box and add an additional 3 tablespoons water. Dip tofu in egg replacer/water mixture and coat completely. Sprinkle ¾ cup cornstarch over tofu and coat completely.
    Heat oil in pan and fry tofu pieces until golden. Drain oil.
    Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in pan on medium heat. Add green onions, ginger and garlic, cook for about 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn garlic. Add vegetable stock, soy sauce, sugar, red pepper and vinegar. Mix 2 tablespoons water with 1 tablespoon cornstarch and pour into mixture stirring well. Add fried tofu and coat evenly.

    This recipe comes to us from "GRUMP 1" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    You can either use chicken pieces or half-chickens (I used chicken breast).
    Ingredients:
    Enough chicken for all
    Olive oil
    Small bottle of gluten-free "Praline Syrup" (about a ½ cup-usually found near bulk coffee section of store-- I used Almond )
    ½ cup of favorite gluten-free whiskey
    Handful of chopped pecans
    Onion slices
    Salt & pepper
    Directions:
    Preheat your oven to 375F. Wash and pat dry the chicken, and place skin side up in roasting pan(s). If making 2 pans of chicken, you may need to double recipe. Drizzle generous amounts of oil over and around chicken. If using onions, put 2 or 3 'rings' on top of each half-chicken. Combine Praline syrup and whiskey and pour over chicken pieces. Sprinkle with pecans, salt and pepper and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, then remove the foil and put back in oven for about 10 minutes (this will cause flames in your oven, just a warning. But it was not bad). Just burning off the alcohol. This should brown the chicken.
    Alternate:
    Now, we used to serve it just like that, placed on a mound of grilled onions - But, another great way is to drain off the juice from the chicken pans (and run through a strainer), and use it like you would if you had made a roast -- you know - turn that juice into a kind of 'gravy', by adding either cornstarch or flour, and bringing it back to a boil, and then spoon over chicken. It is such a good dish and your whole house will smell like heaven! If you prefer to leave out the booze you can and it is almost as good without it!

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
