    Really Good Chinese-style Fried Rice (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Like many folks, fried rice was one of the first Asian dishes I learned to love as a child. Something about the savory steaming fluffy rice, the tiny peas and carrots, the bits of egg, the meat or, my preference, the shrimp coming together to create a tasty dish that continues please me to this day.

    Photo: CC--jeffreywLike many folks, when I went gluten-free, I gave up soy sauce just to be safe. Even though much evidence suggests that soy sauce is safe for people on a gluten-free diet, I have kind of stuck to my old ways and generally avoid soy sauce unless I can be sure it is gluten-free. This means that I have occasionally had to forgo this favorite when ordering Chinese food.

    Below is a recipe for a delicious, restaurant-style gluten-free fried rice that will put smiles on the faces of your lucky eaters.

    Ingredients:

    • 3 cups cold cooked rice, (Ideally, a medium grained rice that is not too sticky)
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • ½ cup chopped carrots
    • ½ cup frozen green peas, thawed
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 green onions, chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1½ cups fresh bean sprouts
    • ½ cup celery, chopped (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce, plus more for seasoning
    • 3 drops sesame oil (optional, but recommended)
    • 4 ounces cooked lean boneless pork, ham, chicken and/or beef, chopped (as desired)
    • 6-8 shrimp, cleaned, shelled and deveined
    • 1 tablespoon rice wine or 1 tablespoon dry sherry

    Directions:

    Heat butter and 1 tablespoon of oil in wok. Add chopped onions and stir-fry until onions turn a nice brown color, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic in the last 2 minutes of cooking.

    Allow wok to cool slightly.

    Mix egg with 3 drops of soy and 3 drops of sesame oil; set aside.

    Add ½ tbsp oil to wok, and swirl to coat the cooking surface;

    Add the egg mixture and swirl quickly until the egg until egg sets against wok; when egg puffs, flip egg and cook other side briefly.

    Remove the egg from wok, and chop into small pieces.

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in wok; add selected meat or shrimp to wok, along with carrots, peas, cooked green onion and garlic; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Feel free to add chopped cabbage, broccoli, Chinese greens, or bok choy, along with the shrimp, ham, etc., and the peas.

    Add rice, green onions, and bean sprouts, and rice wine, tossing to mix well, and stir-fry for 3 minutes.

    Add 2 tbsp of gluten-free soy sauce and chopped egg to rice mixture and fold in; stir-fry for 1 minute more. Serve.

    He** (a man wrote this recipe). I use a mixture of tamari and liquid aminos in place of the soy sauce. I've cooked this recipe about 4 times, changing the meat. It's become a family staple. Very, very good!

    Use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari. I will be sure to add a note of that.

    Wheat free soy sauce like La Choy is gluten free, but in my opinion not very good. I use organic Tamari which is gluten free.

    VERY good recipe--definitely the best I've ever made at home! Even the kids gobbled it up! My ONLY complaint is that the recipe is a bit confusing--the first instruction says to melt the butter and 1 Tbsp. oil in the wok. I mistakenly thought we were talking about the sesame oil, so we had to dump the first mix out. I made a few mistakes of that same nature, because the recipe didn't specify WHICH oil to use. Also, it never says to remove the onion and garlic from the wok before adding the egg, so I left it in there WITH the egg, and found out later (when it said to add it back in) that I had obviously missed a step. I will definitely make this again!

    Ingredient list is missing an onion (not a green onion) because the instructions about cooking an onion until brown don't make any sense - you wouldn't do that to a green onion, plus the green onion is added later in the recipe. I'm guessing one small to medium onion (3/4 cup) based on the recipe I think this is based on. Otherwise this came out great, better than a lot of fried rice I have ordered at restaurants! I think it could stand a bit more garlic and the addition of maybe a half tsp of sesame oil added with the soy sauce at the end.

    2 eggs beaten is listed twice. Do we use the eggs at different time? Confused!

    Celiac.com 08/29/2013 - Eating grilled meat or seafood off sticks is a rite of passage in Thailand. Street-side food stands are ubiquitous in Bangkok, and offer a mind-boggling variety of options.
    Those options often include a delicious ground pork grilled on skewers and served hot. These Thai-style pork skewers are super easy to make and disappear fast at grilling sessions.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound ground pork 3 tablespoons chopped mint 3 tablespoons cilantro 3 tablespoons basil 1 shallot, minced 1 hot chile, minced 2½ tablespoons gluten-free fish sauce 2½ tablespoons lime juice Directions:
    In a large bowl, mix ground pork, chopped mint, cilantro, basil, minced shallot, hot chile, fish sauce and lime juice.
    Form balls of the mixture into 2-inch ovals; place 1-2 per skewer and grill until done.
    Serve.

    Cashew chicken is one of my favorite Asian dishes, but it's almost always made with Hoisin sauce, which usually includes wheat flour, so I usually avoid the temptation to order it when I'm out.
    So, recently, just as I was recalling my love of cashew chicken, I remembered the gluten-free hoisin sauce in my refrigerator, and I was off to the races.
    This recipe for cashew chicken is easy to make, and delivers a tasty dish that will please most eaters, and help you to liven up your dinner repertoire.
    Ingredients:
    1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size strips, about 1-inch x ¼-inch each.
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
    5 slices ginger
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    8 scallions, white and green parts separated, each cut into 1-inch pieces
    ½ red bell pepper, sliced
    1 stalk of celery, sliced
    ½ tablespoon gluten-free hoisin sauce (I use Premier brand)
    ½ tablespoon gluten-free oyster sauce
    1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce
    1 teaspoon teaspoon rice vinegar
    3 tablespoons water
    3 dashes white pepper powder
    ½ teaspoon sugar
    â…› teaspoon sesame oil
    ¾ cup toasted raw cashews
    ¼-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    Salt to taste
    White rice, for serving (optional)
    Directions:
    In a medium bowl, toss chicken with cornstarch until chicken is coated; season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
    Heat a tablespoon oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook half the chicken, tossing often, until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
    Add remaining oil and chicken to skillet along with the garlic, ginger, and white parts of scallions.
    Cook, tossing often, until chicken is browned, about 3 minutes. Return first batch of chicken to pan. Add vinegar; cook until evaporated, about 30 seconds.
    Add sesame oil, celery, red peppers, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, pepper and water, and cook, tossing, until chicken is cooked through, about 1 minutes or so. Remove from heat.
    Stir in scallion greens and cashews. Serve immediately over white rice, if desired.

    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 coeliac 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 coeliac 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.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
