New PF Chang's Gluten Free Menu

I love Chinese food and being able to eat it anywhere is one of the things I miss the most, especially the buffets!  PF Chang’s has become a favorite of mine because of their gluten free menu and because the quality of food is very good. I have only had good experiences there, and they have not broken my trust that they take all of the precautions and are 100% gluten free.

“P.F. Chang’s upholds a rigorous gluten free cooking process to ensure the dietary safety of guests with celiac disease. The restaurant’s staff takes all the necessary measures of precaution during the preparation and serving of gluten free dishes.”

A Well Stocked Pantry is a Celiac’s Best Friend

When I was diagnosed about 4 years ago, the food choices weren’t very good. Most of the stuff was really expensive and tasted like either cardboard or packing peanuts. Thanks to government food labeling and much more awareness there’s a lot more selection now, but I still like to do my own cooking, that way you know what’s in there!!! (Story time: I was lied to by a waitress at PF Chang’s who HAS a GF menu and got REALLY sick. Trust no one, kids!!)

So to keep all of you from getting sabotaged by a waitress at PF Chang’s, here are my favorite things to keep in the kitchen:

My 3-cup Hello Kitty Rice cooker!! You don’t need anything fancy, or Hello Kitty, but it’s fun, easy, and you just throw the rice and water in there and forget about it. You can even put it in when you leave in the morning, set the timer and it’s ready when you come home!

At least 3 kinds of rice; white jasmine or sushi, brown basmati, and brown or wild sweet, just for variety, flavor etc. It’s a great base grain and stretches out meals. Brown rice is really tasty, too, so that helps.

Rice pasta. Enough said. The ones with added rice bran in the ingredients, like Tinkyada taste most like real pasta. Trader Joe’s is great, too. Can’t beat the price. Be careful with sauce ingredients, though! Read those labels!!

Canned beans, black, red, garbanzo, makes for a really easy meal. Throw some white beans on pasta with canned tomatoes, instant protein!

Goya Adobo Light seasoning. You can use it on everything, and it’s gluten free!! Still haven’t found a good sub for soy sauce, though.

The Cuisinart Convection Bread Maker actually has a Gluten Free bread setting. The only one out there with one. I’ve had it for about 3 years now, and it’s still going strong. Saved a lot of money with that machine!

Flour…lots of flour…I try and buy it at Asian markets like H-mart, it’s a lot cheaper than the health food stores. Usually I try and keep white and brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch and sweet rice flour in the house at all times. I’ll have garbanzo or something else if I have a recipe that calls for it, like that yummy brownie from BabyCakes NYC, but I can usually get by with those 5, alone or in some mixture.

I hope this helps people out a bit.

 

Cheers!

“…and I like Chinese buffets.” BINGO!

Today I was out doing some shopping with someone I had just met.  When it came time for lunch, I asked her where she would like to eat.  I decided not to share that I was eating gluten free and then become a burden on where we could eat.  We both said how we like anything, so then I suggested Chipotle(One of my favorites and somewhere I can eat GF!).  She had never been there but was open to trying it.  Since she had never been there, I asked her what some of her favorites were…. I should have just stuck with the GF place.  This is where it starts to get ugly… She said, “there is a good chinese buffet up the street, and I like chinese buffets.”  

Suddenly, the wheat devil(looks like the typical 400lb. person you see at a buffet) appeared on my shoulder, and then the Gluten Free Angel(I picture her like a mini Jessica Simpson) appeared on the other.  Long story short, Jessica Simpson could not outsmart the Wheat Devil, and he eventually sat on Jessica and won the battle.  I had my first major gluten meal.  

I should have just stuck with Chipotle and Jessica Simpson would have been spared.  Get yourself some GF Soy Sauce so you can make Chinese at home.
