Finally...asian Food!

Recommended Posts

My favorite at my local Chinese restaurant is General Tso's chicken and I haven't gotten that quite figured out yet. And at least next week I'm going to do a vegetarian/detox diet so it'll be a while before I get that. But since I've got the "soy sauce" pretty close and I know how to make "chicken nuggets" I think I'll get it eventually

BUT...I finally made something that tastes like Asian food! And without gluten, soy and sesame that is not an easy thing!

I made a sauce of blackstrap molasses and balsamic vinegar. (About 2Tbsp molasses and 1-2 tsp of the vinegar). Then I added salt, fresh ground black pepper & crushed red pepper. Would probably be good with a little cinnamon or ginger too, but I don't think I added them this time.

Then I thinned it out with water to a thin soy sauce consistency.

I stirfried in safflower oil - fresh broccoli cut in small florets and water chestnuts.

In another pan, I browned ground beef (would be really good with chicken too)

Then I mixed those two together and poured the sauce over it and cooked it until the broccoli was soft enough.

Put it on bibb lettuce leaves (they were a bit small, so you might want to try somethlng larger...either iceberg or cabbage?) and wrap.

To go with it I mixed brown rice and frozen peas/carrots with a little bit of the same sauce and apparently I added more red pepper!

Yummy!!! :P

Oh, and btw, my mom had some. She's not got problems with gluten or soy, and she still loved it, unlike some of my creations!

For those of you who aren't allergic to pineapple, I think a bit of that would have been really good in this too.

Ooo...I just had a thought...anybody made gluten-free fortune cookies?

Your question about fortune cookies sparked my curiosity, so I did a search and found a recipe on this site:

I wonder if anyone sells them pre-made - would be great to bring along with me to P. F. Chang's or eat with my stir fry's at home. :)

I'll have to do a little experimenting as i don't use much corn and am allergic to eggs. But the basis sounds really good and pretty easy. Thanks :-)

How do you make your chicken nuggets?

Yellow Rose

I've actually done this with turkey, but would do it the same way for chicken. I can't have eggs either, so I make the flax seed egg replacement. Then I roll the turkey nuggets (cut breast cutlets to the right side) in that. Eggs would work if you can have them. Then I make a mixture of quinoa flakes and whatever gluten free flour i have (usually i use something other than quinoa as it tends to be a bit strong...amaranth or millet is the most likely for me to have) and coat the "egg" covered nuggets with that. Then heat oil in a frying pan and pan fry the nuggets. I don't "deep fry" but turn the nuggets on each side. At least in my mind this method soaks in less fat ;-) Yummy! I usually use olive oil, but it smokes A LOT so you'd probably want to use an oil with a higher temp tolerance.

Last time I made turkey nuggets, I mixed some agave nectar and dijon mustard for tasty sauce. Problem with the sauce is that I ended up eating more of the nuggets than I should have just to finish it. Funny, it didn't make me eat more spinach salad that I had put it on as a dressing. hmmm....
