Learn how to make a traditional, gluten free ramen burger, including the sauce! Continue reading “Gluten Free Ramen Burger – The Secret to the Glue! (Egg-Free)”

Easy Gluten Free Hot & Sour Soup with Ramen

Easy Gluten Free Hot & Sour Soup

King Soba is my favorite and the¬†only manufacturer that I know of that makes gluten free soba noodles. Now, they offer gluten free ramen! And the brown rice variety is amazing; better than gluten ramen, to me. However, it does not include a flavor packet. So, I had fun creating this easy hot & sour soup recipe using their ramen. It’s perfect for those who do not appreciate mushrooms. Also, check out my recipe for Traditional Gluten Free Hot & Sour Soup.

They also offer black rice, buckwheat, and a variety pack. I’ve made this same soup using their buckwheat ramen. They cook a bit faster and have a unique flavor that I also enjoy. Continue reading “Easy Gluten Free Hot & Sour Soup with Ramen”

However, you may use tofu instead of chicken as a vegetarian option, as well as vegetable broth for chicken broth. As a plus point, shiitake mushrooms are packed with iron.

Naked Gluten Free Japanese Christmas Cake Recipe

Gluten Free Japanese Christmas Cake

In Japan, on Christmas Eve, they traditionally serve Christmas cake, made of sponge cake, covered in whipped cream and topped with strawberries. Sometimes it was decorated with chocolate or Santa Clause. It was a symbol of Western modernity and a high social status as they were expensive. Since it’s inception, these cakes have become affordable. They are also available in multiple variations, not just whipped cream and strawberries. I knew nothing about this tradition until Julie asked me for a sponge cake recipe so that one of her¬†sons could make a gluten free Japanese Christmas Cake covered in Cool Whip for school. I forwarded her my Recipe for Gluten Free Sponge Cake. Continue reading “Naked Gluten Free Japanese Christmas Cake Recipe”

Gluten Free Napa Cabbage Kimchi

Mild Gluten Free Kimchi

Kimchi, also spelled kimchee and¬†gimchi, is a fermented Korean side dish made of cabbage and other vegetables with a number of other ingredients.¬†In traditional preparation, kimchi is fermented in jars underground. There are too many different varieties of kimchi to mention, but I enjoy the napa cabbage version. Napa cabbage is tender and sweet. This recipe is my own mildly¬†spicy version. It reminds me of spicy coleslaw that has rested overnight or a couple of days, you know, when it becomes soft instead of crisp. Kimchi may be eaten fermented or fresh, which is how I use it. Serve this napa cabbage kimchi with rice and Korean pulled pork or strain it and use as a filling with pulled pork in¬†Gluten Free Egg Rolls. (Stay tuned in for my Korean Pulled Pork Recipe.)
