Feel Good Foods Gluten Free Pot Stickers
Feel Good Foods Gluten Free Egg Rolls
To find and order directly to you visit:
The Feel Good Gluten free Pot Stickers come with their own side dipping sauce, you can also choose between their just veggie, or chicken, or pork options depending on your preferences. These can be found in the frozen section at most super markets such as: Raley's, Safeway, local health food store (Whole Foods, New Earth, S&S, etc.) The rice is perfect to put the green beans on top of especially with the yummy garlic sauce that drowns the green beans. Use a spoon to scoop up the sauce and drizzle over the rice.
Feel Good Foods Egg Rolls are just like the real thing, if not better. We love to mix it up with these or if we're crazy hungry just add those in with the rest. They don't come with their own sauce, but you could use the sauce from the green beans or if you have enough sauce from the pot stickers its yummy with that too; if all else fails, just use one of your GF soy sauces.
Soy free- We know soy isn't the best for your health, and some of ya'll have soy allergies so if you need to replace the soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, etc. we suggest either Oceans Halo No Soy, Primal Kitchen, or Coconut Aminos (if you can have coconut). If you like salt like we do, then for some of these options you may need to add salt to taste to give it more of the illusion of true soy sauce. All those options are also gluten free.
Story behind the recipe:
This duo was in the middle of a torturous diet called the 3-6-9 Medical Medium Cleanse. Days (that felt like years) of no salt, grains, sugar, meat, oil, fat, nuts, and more. Basically just veggies, fruit, and chicken and that's it with absolutely no taste. We lived in bland-land dreaming of food and counting down the seconds till the 9 days were over. One night when searching through Save Mart for our bland dinner ingredients Allergy Girl happened to notice something out of the corner of her eye in the frozen section. GF TEMPURA!
She did a double take and desperately rushed over to it to check the ingredients for her allergies, the whole time begging in her head (at least she hopes it wasn't out loud) that she would be able to eat it. It had been over 11 years since she had any kind of tempura and had shoved that longing into forgotten hopes and dreams land. She checked the ingredients and sure enough... IT WAS A MATCH! She ran to the Chef and extatically professed what she had just found, and of course (being the amazing man that he is), told her to go get it.
After our torturous 3-6-9 Cleanse one of our first 3 meals was this meal. I (Allergy Girl) shared all the GF, dairy free, my allergy friendly Chinese food products with the Chef and we together created a Chinese dinner so glorious that it looked and tasted like it came straight from a Chinese restaurant. We stuffed ourselves till we were sick to our stomachs and STILL wanted more. It's become one of our favorite meals and it's super easy and simple to make.
