    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

My co-worker is Asian and she's going to take me to a market that she goes to tomorrow. I know that I've heard people say that Asian markets are good for people with celiac disease because a lot of their stuff is naturally gluten free. Do you have any ideas for stuff that I should be on the look out for?

anything fresh!! Ooh, you are so lucky! Of course, wonton wrappers and such are out. Read the labels (if you can) on the sauces and stuff. Have your friend translate for you. If they have a good soy sauce (not made with wheat - just the fermented soy) snap it up!!! That would be my plan if I could go.

rice noodles - the thread style. good for so many things, including the fastest soup-for-dinner you've ever made from 'scratch'. (Broth, bag of small, frozen, cooked shrimp, rice noodles.)

rice-paper, for making spring rolls. (you'll probably find it next to the rice noodles.)

and peruse the sauces. the labeling may identify when ones are gluten-free. (like chili sauce usually is.)

Thanks for the help. We just got back and I got spring roll wraps and the noodles to go in there. I also got chili sauce. Can you tell me how to make the stuff though? I got some tips from my friend, but I want to see how you make stuff too.

Besides the lazy shrimp soup recipe I mentioned, you can use it in place of rice for stir fries. For spring rolls, you can pick a few vegetables you like in them, soak the paper to soften it (a sheet at a time), and roll them up, either baking, pan frying, or deep frying.

I believe ThaiKitchen's website has a number of recipes as well.
