Gluten-Free Chinese Food — Menu Plan Sept. 29

By · Print This Post Print This Post

GFWorldChinaAnother Monday, another Gluten-Free Menu Swap with plenty of tempting gluten-free meals. Chinese Food is the last theme of Tastes of the World this month. 

When eating Chinese food, there are a few common things you need to check for gluten. First, and most common problem is soy sauce. Yes, most soy sauce is made with wheat. Fortunately, there are several brands of gluten-free Soy Sauce alternatives:

Crispy Fried Entrees, Tempura
Most of these meals are battered, which means flour and gluten. To make your own, use cornstarch and egg whites.

WonTons, Dumplings, Egg Rolls, Spring Rolls, etc.
The wrappers used to make these are made with flour (gluten). To make your own, try Spring Roll Rice Paper Wrappers like I do for Gluten-Free Egg Rolls.

Don’t Feel Like Making Your Own?
Try P.F. Chang’s and Pei Wei restaurants. Both have menus with many gluten-free options.

Don’t forget to check below our menu for more gluten-free menus, meals, and ideas for Chinese Gluten-Free Meals.

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free
No Chinese food on Melissa’s plan this week. Instead, her family will be eating a couple slow cooker meals — Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili and Beef and Cabbage Soup. They will also be enjoying Tuna Noodle Casserole, BLTs, Roasted Chicken, Salmon, and a Foil Dinner with Hamburger, Potatoes, and Carrots. Check out her menu post for recipe links and lunch ideas, too.

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she uses the Coconut Aminos to replace soy sauce at her house. And, I have to say that it is well-received at my house, too. Elisabeth also found frozen gluten-free Egg Rolls and Dumplings made by Feel Good Foods to purchase. Looks like the company is coming out with frozen gluten-free Asian meals, too. Can’t wait to give them a try! For dinners this week, Elisabeth’s family will be eating French Toast Roll-Ups, Chipotle Beans and Rice, Butternut Squash Smoothie, Tomato Soup, Stuffed Squash, and Pizza.

The Peaceful Mom: Simple Gluten-Free Menu
Kimberlee isn’t planning any Chinese meals this week. She does have some Tex-Mex meals on her menu: Black Bean Chicken Chili, Chicken Enchiladas, and Spicy Black Beans. Her family will also be eating BBQ Pork Sliders, Pizza, BBQ Pepper Jack Bacon Burgers, and Bacon and Eggs for dinners this week.

The Gluten Free Week: Gluten-Free
Lori isn’t limiting herself to Chinese food this week. She’s including all types of Asian food, including Vietnamese and Thai food, too. Lori reminds us to be careful about eating imitation crab and fish in prepared sushi because some of it contains gluten. Lori enjoys making Asian Peanut PastaChicken Stir FryAsian Beef SkewersBok Choy Stir Fry, and Chicken Pho. To fill in her week’s menu, she’s also planning for Gluten-Free Apple Sausages, Veggie-Packed Pizza Wraps, and Turkey Burgers.
