Chinese food has always been one of my favorites and every time we do out to eat mom's suggestion is P F Changs. Even if you avoid the obvious wheat-based foods, Chinese restaurants are challenging due to the soy sauce used in most dishes so that's why I choose P F Changs or their sister company Pei Wai. I recently found these new Gluten-Free Handmade Asian Style Dumplings made by Feel Good Foods. The person posting about them says they are delicious!
Vanessa Phillips, the founder of Feel Good Foods, has celiac disease. Her husband and partner, Tryg Siverson, is a chef do iy'd no wonder they make a great product!
Here are the ingredients of the chicken dumplings:
Wrapper: sweet rice flour, water, potato starch, rice flour, soybean oil, salt, xanthan gum, corn starch
Filling: chicken, cabbage, sesame oil, green onion, sugar, salt, garlic, ginger, cilantro, yeast extract, black pepper
Dipping Sauce: wheat free tamari (water, organic soybeans, salt, organic vinegar), sugar, white vinegar, ginger, garlic, and ground black pepper
Where to find these GFree dumplings? On the East Coast (they are based in New York), but we're in Texas so not sure if they are here yet. But I did get Bard's Gluten Free beer here to Austin so anything's possible right? What I did for Bard's was go to their website and emailed them about when their product would be in Austin. I actually got a response back from the president of the company and sure enough Bard's was here within a year! And it was well worth the wait since I had not had a frosty mug of beer in over four years!
I plan to contact Feel Good Foods and request these products for Whole Foods and HEB here in Austin so stay tuned into Gluten Free Lady!
Remember too that just because foods are gluten free does not mean they won't cause you to gain weight! Moderation is still always the key to losing weight and keeping it off!
