One of the biggest challenges for me when I started my gluten free journey was trying to find out how I could make gluten free Asian recipes. With a Chinese-born mother, Asian foods were a staple for me growing up. I enjoyed home-cooked Chinese dishes almost daily, while enjoying other Asian cuisines such as Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese classics, including sushi, pad Thai, kim chee, bulgogi and more, on a regular basis.
Gluten Free Swaps
I found that rice or vegetable noodles (get this amazing vegetable spiralizer to make your own vegetable noodles) were perfect for swaps for wheat noodles. I also found Coconut Aminos – a soy sauce alternative that’s derived from coconuts and both soy free and gluten free – and Organicville Sky Valley Sriacha hot sauce – a gluten free and preservative free Asian hot sauce. Both sauces serve as a base for many of my own Asian meals as well as those below. Check out other ideas for gluten free swaps for other favorite foods.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
