    CHICKEN VEGETABLE CURRY (GLUTEN-FREE)


    Jefferson Adams

    I love just about every type of curry under the sun. Before I started eating gluten-free, one of my favorite curries to make was S&B's Golden Curry. It's an easy, cheap, delicious curry block that is available nearly everywhere I have ever traveled.

    The S&B company makes a number of delicious curry blocks that I now cannot use because they all contain wheat flour. However, I was shopping at Nijiya market in San Francisco's Japantown recently, when I noticed a red S&B box with Japanese writing. It looked to be an import from Japan. Unlike the other S&B curries, which list wheat flour as an ingredient, this one contained sorghum. The product is called "Curry No Ohji-sama." It comes in a red box with a cartoon of a child with a band of yellow stars across his head.

    Now, technically this product is not sold as gluten-free, so please evaluate it based on your own personal needs and judgement.
    S&B Curry Sauce Mix
    The English label listed the following ingredients: Palm Oil, Corn Starch, Dextrin, White Sorghum, Salt, Sugar Beet, Vegetable Paste (Palm oil, pumpkin, carrot, cabbage, sweet corn, spinach, tomato, bell pepper, molokhiya), Curry Powder, Chinese Cabbage Extract Powder, Caramel, Fruit paste (Canola oil, Mango, Pineapple, Passion fruit, Apple, Banana), Yeast extract powder, Sucrose fatty acid esters, Artificial flavor, Paprika color.

    After my first try, I found that I needed to modify the curry with a bit of additional curry powder, and a dash of soy sauce. However, once I did, the result was a rich, delicious curry that goes great with rice or with your favorite gluten-free noodles.

    Lastly, this recipe also works well with pork or beef in place of chicken. It is also delicious as a vegetarian dish.

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 chicken breast about 6-8 ounces (substitute pork chop or beef)
    1 small onion or ½ large onion, chopped
    1 large potato or 2 small potatoes, chopped
    1 large carrot, chopped
    4-6 Crimini, brown, Shitake, or other button mushrooms
    ½ cup zucchini
    1½ tablespoons of curry powder - I use Trader Joe's.
    1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce or tamari

    Directions:
    Cut vegetables into bite-size pieces. Halve or quarter mushrooms, depending on size.

    In a medium saucepan, sauté onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Add meat and cook until lightly brown.

    Add remaining vegetables and sauté for a few more minutes, until vegetables are slightly cooked.

    Add 2½ cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, skimming off and discarding any foam. Remove from heat.

    Add S&B curry cubes, curry powder and soy sauce. Cook according to package directions.

    Serve over rice, or with your favorite gluten-free noodles. Also goes great over quinoa! Makes 4-6 servings.

    Interesting find! I looked at the manufacturer's site in Japanese (I'm a native Japanese speaker). Tried to list the URL but that's apparently not allowed in a comment. It's www.sbcurry.com/oji/products/products01.html.

     

    While it is true that wheat is not listed as an ingredient, the origin of caramel coloring and emulsifier (which is not included in the translated label, I see) is a mystery... And the site lists the common allergens that are *not* used in this product as: eggs, dairy, buckwheat, peanuts, & soy. (i.e. wheat is not listed as an allergen excluded from this product.) It also says it is manufactured on the same line as products containing wheat.

     

    From this I tend to deduce the "roux type" block (red box) probably isn't safe for celiacs. Interestingly enough, the one below it (powder form in blue box) does say it doesn't contain any wheat (or egg, dairy, buckwheat, peanuts, soy, rice). One thing to note is that things like barley & rye are not included in such common allergen lists in Japan, so I have no way of knowing its gluten content, but at least the blue box (powder mix) is wheat-free, if you can find it.

    I contacted the company in Japanese and they said that the pouch/retort version of ojisama curry's dextrin is from a corn source (カレーã®çŽ‹å­ã•ã¾ レトルト). I did not ask about this roux but tried some and did not seem to have a reaction. I was, however, concerned that it is made on the same line as wheat. Since I already contacted the company, maybe Aya could ask them about gluten in the roux? I was very impressed with their quick and specific response, and the more people who contact them the better, I think. I was not happy to see that the blue box with powdered mix contains MSG, so I probably will not try that.

    I meant to say the mizuame was made from corn. Usually it is barley syrup, but sometimes corn syrup. I never eat anything with mizuame unless it is confirmed to be corn.

    I have also received an email from S&B about this curry roux:

    There is no wheat in any of the ingredients. As you noticed, the package states that it is made on equipment that also processes wheat. In our company, the lines of the machinery are thoroughly cleaned after each use, so there should be no mixing of wheat in this product.

     

    They also state that their curry powder (in a red can) is pure spices and ground in a dedicated spice grinder.

     

    Thank you for introducing me to the curry roux, which is readily available in the baby/infant department of most supermarkets in this area. I have used it twice and have had no ill effects, but if you are particularly sensitive you might want to be aware of the possible cross-contamination. They also have a powdered white stew mix for infants, as well as corn soup powder, which I will try and let you know if it works.

    Thank you so much for doing this investigation!!! My son 7 years old just got diagnosed with celiac and I feel so much guilt that I have been poisoning him all these years. Also am panicking about what to feed my family as we will all go gluten free. Thank you so much for this info. I am Japanese American (but can't read Japanese) and grew up on this curry. So glad to try it and perhaps the blue box in the baby section!

    Cabbage: 1 - 2 medium small heads
    Or:
    Carrots - 2 or 3 small bags
    Black mustard seeds: a teaspoon and a half
    Urad dal (dried lentils): 1 teaspoon
    Channa dal (another kind of dried lentil): 1 teaspoon
    Dried red chilies: 1 - 2, broken into pieces
    Chili powder: a heaping teaspoonful
    Turmeric: a teaspoon
    Salt: to taste
    Chop cabbage coarsely (carrots into little pieces) and set aside. In a large pot, heat about 4 or 5 tablespoons of canola oil; toss in a few mustard seeds to test; when they pop, toss in the rest of the mustard seeds and cover the pot. When all seeds have popped (about 45 seconds), throw in the dals and dried red chilies and sauté until they all turn brownish. Toss in your chopped cabbage (or carrots) and stir it about so oil and fried stuff are all evenly distributed. Then throw in chili powder, turmeric, and salt; again turn cabbage over so spices are evenly distributed. Cook over low heat until cabbage or carrots are done (cooked yet crunchy) - should take about 25 minutes. Be sure to stir every 5 or 6 minutes to ensure that the cabbage (or carrots) does not stick to the bottom or burn.

    This recipe comes to us from Lynne Marie Sullivan.
    Ingredients:
    1 cup coarse soy granules (soy grits) or gluten-free textured vegetable protein (TVP)
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup chopped green onions
    1 small bunch fresh parsley, washed and finely chopped
    ½ bunch fresh mint leaves, washed and chopped, OR ½ teaspoon dried mint leaves
    1 large or 2 medium firm ripe tomatoes, washed and diced
    Juice of 1 lemon, or more to taste
    3 tablespoons quality olive oil
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Pour the boiling water over the soy or TVP granules, cover, and allow to stand until most of the water is absorbed (about an hour). Squeeze any remaining liquid out of the granules before placing in a large mixing bowl.
    Add remaining ingredients. Add more lemon juice and mint to taste. Toss together, cover the bowl, and refrigerate at least an hour before serving. The flavor actually improves the second day. Makes about 4 large servings.

    Hummus is naturally gluten-free and high in protein, making it an excellent choice for a power snack. Finding a pre-made gluten-free hummus  is not that difficult, but to avoid possible cross-contamination, it is always better to make it yourself. The nice thing about this recipe is that it is very basic, and you can add other things like sun dried tomatoes or bell peppers to give it the flavor you prefer.
    Traditional Hummus (Gluten-Free)
    Ingredients:

    1 cup dried garbanzo beans 7 cups water - for cooking 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ¼ teaspoons salt- or to taste ½ teaspoon minced garlic ¼ cup tahini ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice To Make:
    Rinse the garbanzo beans, drain and cover with water to cover by 3 inches. Soak beans for 4 to 6 hours. Drain in a colander and rinse thoroughly. (Please note: the key to this hummus recipe is to just soak the beans for the 4 to 6 hours the recipe calls for. If you soak them overnight they will absorb too much liquid and you will have very mushy beans and lots of water. If you don't have time to do a 4 to 6 hour soak, you can do a quick soak by bringing the beans and soaking water to a boil and boiling for 1 minute. Remove the beans and water from the heat and let stand for 30 minutes before draining and continuing with the recipe. ) In a large pot combine soaked beans, the 7 cups water and the baking soda. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the beans are falling apart, about 1 hour. Stir any foam that comes to the surface back into the beans while they cook. Pour beans and any remaining cooking liquid into a large bowl and cool to room temperature in the refrigerator. Transfer beans and liquid to a food processor. Add the salt, garlic, tahini and lemon juice and process until smooth. If the mixture is too thick (it should be the consistency of thick cream), add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the hummus is smooth. Serve with veggies or gluten-free chips, or crackers and enjoy!

    Kabobs are one of my absolute favorite things to make. Using an assembly line to kabob-making trims time in the kitchen. In this version, the flavor-packed marinade and dipping sauce adds a fresh kick to the sweet-tart chunks of fresh pineapple. For fewer kabobs, cook and store any left over pineapple and chicken; they make a nice addition to salads.
    Ingredients:
    2 pounds boneless chicken, cut into ¾-inch cubes
    1 2-pound pineapple, cut into ¾-inch cubes
    2 ½ cups flat-leaf parsley
    3 cloves garlic
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    ½ tablespoon red chili flakes
    ½ cup olive oil
    Up to 20 wood skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
    Directions:
    In a food processor, combine parsley, garlic, sugar, lime juice, vinegar and chili flakes and pulse 3-4 times. With the machine on, slowly pour in olive oil until you have a smooth sauce.
    Reserve half the sauce in a small bowl and add the rest to a plastic bag. Add chicken to sauce and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
    In the meantime, preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill. Begin threading the skewers with a piece of pineapple, then chicken. Continue with other skewers, alternating pineapple and chicken. Grill 3-4 minutes per side.
    Serve with remaining sauce drizzled over kabobs or alongside.

    Celiac.com 04/26/2018 - Emily Dickson is one of Canada’s top athletes. As a world-class competitor in the biathlon, the event that combines cross-country skiing with shooting marksmanship, Emily Dickson was familiar with a demanding routine of training and competition. After discovering she had celiac disease, Dickson is using her diagnosis and gluten-free diet a fuel to help her get her mojo back.
    Just a few years ago, Dickson dominated her peers nationally and won a gold medal at Canada Games for both pursuit and team relay. She also won silver in the sprint and bronze in the individual race. But just as she was set to reach her peak, Dickson found herself in an agonizing battle. She was suffering a mysterious loss of strength and endurance, which itself caused huge anxiety for Dickson. As a result of these physical and mental pressures, Dickson slipped from her perch as one of Canada's most promising young biathletes.
    Eventually, in September 2016, she was diagnosed with celiac disease. Before the diagnosis, Dickson said, she had “a lot of fatigue, I just felt tired in training all the time and I wasn't responding to my training and I wasn't recovering well and I had a few things going on, but nothing that pointed to celiac.”
    It took a little over a year for Dickson to eliminate gluten, and begin to heal her body. She still hasn’t fully recovered, which makes competing more of a challenge, but, she says improving steadily, and expects to be fully recovered in the next few months. Dickson’s diagnosis was prompted when her older sister Kate tested positive for celiac, which carries a hereditary component. "Once we figured out it was celiac and we looked at all the symptoms it all made sense,” said Dickson.
    Dickson’s own positive test proved to be both a revelation and a catalyst for her own goals as an athlete. Armed with there new diagnosis, a gluten-free diet, and a body that is steadily healing, Dickson is looking to reap the benefits of improved strength, recovery and endurance to ramp up her training and competition results.
    Keep your eyes open for the 20-year-old native of Burns Lake, British Columbia. Next season, she will be competing internationally, making a big jump to the senior ranks, and hopefully a regular next on the IBU Cup tour.

    Celiac.com 04/25/2018 - A team of Yale University researchers discovered that bacteria in the small intestine can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response. In this case, they looked at Enterococcus gallinarum, which can travel beyond the gut to the spleen, lymph nodes, and liver. The research could be helpful for treating type 1 diabetes, lupus, and celiac disease.
    In autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, lupus, and celiac disease, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells and tissues. Autoimmune disease affects nearly 24 million people in the United States. 
    In their study, a team of Yale University researchers discovered that bacteria in the small intestine can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response. In this case, they looked at Enterococcus gallinarum, which can travel beyond the gut to the spleen, lymph nodes, and liver. They found that E. gallinarum triggered an autoimmune response in the mice when it traveled beyond the gut.
    They also found that the response can be countered by using antibiotics or vaccines to suppress the autoimmune reaction and prevent the bacterium from growing. The researchers were able to duplicate this mechanism using cultured human liver cells, and they also found the bacteria E. gallinarum in the livers of people with autoimmune disease.
    The team found that administering an antibiotic or vaccine to target E. gallinarum suppressed the autoimmune reaction in the mice and prevented the bacterium from growing. "When we blocked the pathway leading to inflammation," says senior study author Martin Kriegel, "we could reverse the effect of this bug on autoimmunity."
    Team research team plans to further investigate the biological mechanisms that are associated with E. gallinarum, along with the potential implications for systemic lupus and autoimmune liver disease.
    This study indicates that gut bacteria may be the key to treating chronic autoimmune conditions such as systemic lupus and autoimmune liver disease. Numerous autoimmune conditions have been linked to gut bacteria.

    Celiac.com 04/24/2018 - Did you know in 2017 alone, the United States had OVER TENS OF THOUSANDS of people evacuate their homes due to natural disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis? Most evacuation sites are not equipped to feed your family the safe gluten free foods that are required to stay healthy.  Are you prepared in case of an emergency? Do you have your Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag ready to grab and go?  
    I have already lived through two natural disasters. Neither of which I ever want to experience again, but they taught me a very valuable lesson, which is why I created a Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag (see link below). Here’s my story. If you’ve ever lived in or visited the Los Angeles area, you’re probably familiar with the Santa Ana winds and how bitter sweet they are. Sweet for cleaning the air and leaving the skies a brilliant crystal blue, and bitter for the power outages and potential brush fires that might ensue.  It was one of those bitter nights where the Santa Ana winds were howling, and we had subsequently lost our power. We had to drive over an hour just to find a restaurant so we could eat dinner. I remember vividly seeing the glow of a brush fire on the upper hillside of the San Gabriel Mountains, a good distance from our neighborhood. I really didn’t think much of it, given that it seemed so far from where we lived, and I was hungry! After we ate, we headed back home to a very dark house and called it a night. 
    That’s where the story takes a dangerous turn….about 3:15am. I awoke to the TV blaring loudly, along with the lights shining brightly. Our power was back on! I proceeded to walk throughout the house turning everything off at exactly the same time our neighbor, who was told to evacuate our street, saw me through our window, assuming I knew that our hillside was ablaze with flames. Flames that were shooting 50 feet into the air. I went back to bed and fell fast asleep. The fire department was assured we had left because our house was dark and quiet again. Two hours had passed.  I suddenly awoke to screams coming from a family member yelling, “fire, fire, fire”! Flames were shooting straight up into the sky, just blocks from our house. We lived on a private drive with only one way in and one way out.  The entrance to our street was full of smoke and the fire fighters were doing their best to save our neighbors homes. We literally had enough time to grab our dogs, pile into the car, and speed to safety. As we were coming down our street, fire trucks passed us with sirens blaring, and I wondered if I would ever see my house and our possessions ever again. Where do we go? Who do we turn to? Are shelters a safe option? 
    When our daughter was almost three years old, we left the West Coast and relocated to Northern Illinois. A place where severe weather is a common occurrence. Since the age of two, I noticed that my daughter appeared gaunt, had an incredibly distended belly, along with gas, stomach pain, low weight, slow growth, unusual looking stool, and a dislike for pizza, hotdog buns, crackers, Toast, etc. The phone call from our doctor overwhelmed me.  She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I broke down into tears sobbing. What am I going to feed my child? Gluten is everywhere.
    After being scoped at Children's Hospital of Chicago, and my daughters Celiac Disease officially confirmed, I worried about her getting all the nutrients her under nourished body so desperately needed. I already knew she had a peanut allergy from blood tests, but just assumed she would be safe with other nuts. I was so horribly wrong. After feeding her a small bite of a pistachio, which she immediately spit out, nuts would become her enemy. Her anaphylactic reaction came within minutes of taking a bite of that pistachio. She was complaining of horrible stomach cramps when the vomiting set in. She then went limp and starting welting. We called 911.
    Now we never leave home without our Epipens and our gluten free food supplies. We analyze every food label. We are hyper vigilant about cross contamination. We are constantly looking for welts and praying for no stomach pain. We are always prepared and on guard. It's just what we do now. Anything to protect our child, our love...like so many other parents out there have to do every moment of ever day!  
    Then, my second brush with a natural disaster happened, without any notice, leaving us once again scrambling to find a safe place to shelter. It was a warm and muggy summer morning, and my husband was away on a business trip leaving my young daughter and me to enjoy our summer day. Our Severe Weather Alert Radio was going off, again, as I continued getting our daughter ready for gymnastics.  Having gotten used to the (what seemed to be daily) “Severe Thunderstorm warning,” I didn’t pay much attention to it. I continued downstairs with my daughter and our dog, when I caught a glimpse out the window of an incredibly black looking cloud. By the time I got downstairs, I saw the cover to our grill literally shoot straight up into the air. Because we didn’t have a fenced in yard, I quickly ran outside and chased the cover, when subsequently, I saw my neighbor’s lawn furniture blow pass me. I quickly realized I made a big mistake going outside. As I ran back inside, I heard debris hitting the front of our home.  Our dog was the first one to the basement door! As we sat huddled in the dark corner of our basement, I was once again thinking where are we going to go if our house is destroyed. I was not prepared, and I should have been. I should have learned my lesson the first time. Once the storm passed, we quickly realized we were without power and most of our trees were destroyed. We were lucky that our house had minimal damage, but that wasn’t true for most of the area surrounding us.  We were without power for five days. We lost most of our food - our gluten free food.
    That is when I knew we had to be prepared. No more winging it. We couldn’t take a chance like that ever again. We were “lucky” one too many times. We were very fortunate that we did not lose our home to the Los Angeles wildfire, and only had minimal damage from the severe storm which hit our home in Illinois.
      
    In 2017 alone, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) had 137 natural disasters declared within the United States. According to FEMA, around 50% of the United States population isn’t prepared for a natural disaster. These disasters can happen anywhere, anytime and some without notice. It’s hard enough being a parent, let alone being a parent of a gluten free family member. Now, add a natural disaster on top of that. Are you prepared?

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.
