Calling All Cooks! Does Anyone Cook Chinese Food At Home?

Recommended Posts

Pretty much from the minute I got pregnant I have had the worst chinese food cravings, usually stuff that's all gluten like egg rolls and lo mein. I would like to learn to make some of this stuff at home if it is possible. Does anyone make Chinese food at home? I know how to make stir fry. I mean gluten-free versions of noodle and fried dishes that you cannot get in gluten-free restaurants. Can anyone help?

I know you can buy rice noodles in the International Section of the Supermarkets. I hope you get some replies to your question. I would like to learn how to make something besides Stir-Fry.

Do you have a pf changs nearby?

If not, sometimes Chinese dishes that use a white sauce are gluten-free, but of course you'd have to ask.

Here are some recipes:

egg rolls - http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/lofiversion...php/t16887.html

Someone also posted not too long ago about a website that sells gluten-free lo mein noodles. Can't find it though...

Congrats- I relate to the craving issue! If you can get yourself to an asian market, there are a wealth of options. Noodles made of rice or sweet potato(yup) are the clear-ish looking ones, but there are also noodles made of rice that are just straight sticks, that when cooked are indistinguishable from spaghetti, and are great for those chinese dishes that require a more substantial noodle. Use corn starch as a thickener, and find yourself some gluten-free soy sauce. If none is to be found in your area, Tamari or Tamarind sauce is a good alternative. Bragg makes a good one and can probably be found at your nearest health food store. Oh, and pick up some round rice paper, for making thai"summer" roll wraps- just like spring rolls, but not fried, Fillings can be anything your craving heart desires! Bon appetit!

I make this sweet and sour chicken recipe. It's really good, but I only use a 1/2 cup of cider vinegar, decrease the sugar, and increase the pineapple juice.

I went to the link for the egg rolls. they are sounding good but does any one have a recipe for an egg roll that does not use pork for those of us that cant have it. I also have been wanting to make these but just cant get a recipe that has NO pork or seafood.

Thanks,

Grump

I wonder if you could substitute ground chicken for the ground pork in that recipe...

We just had a chinese exchange student at our house and she cooked for us 3 times. I have a few good recipes that my family loves of my own too...

I'm happy to post, just gotta gather em together :D

I'll try to post later this afternoon, I have a recipe for Red Pork, Pepper Pork, Sweet & Sour Pork, Back to Pot Pork (okay, so you can sub chicken or beef for most of these LOL :D). I also have a recipe for egg drop soup. :D

I got a great Chinese Cook book from my library, I'll see if I can find the title (I've since returned it). But she had great recipes in there.

:)

Some of the Sun-Bird mixes you buy at the grocery store are gluten-free.

I just made Sweet and Sour pork last night. It's great even if you're not a sweet and sour person.

I used red and yellow peppers instead of green

I also make the fried rice. I add a frozen peas and carrots mix, extra seasame oil, and shrimp or chicken.

The Beef and Broccoli is good too. Check gluten-free status yourself.

You can also stir fry veg. Just add soy sauce (La Choy is gluten-free - check for yourself) and seasame oil, a little red pepper and maybe some garlic or onion powder.

Congrats and good luck.
