This is our second review for Feel Good Foods. In the first post we reviewed their Chinese dumplings. Similar to dumplings, even at the rare Asian eateries that cater to gluten-free diners, dumplings and eggrolls are off the menu. Those of us who follow this diet have had to do without until now. Now, thanks to Feel Good Foods, we can easily make a gluten-free stir fry at home and pair it with rice and dumplings or eggrolls.
In this taste test we tried the chicken eggrolls and the veggie eggrolls, but they are also available with shrimp. Our taste testers found these eggrolls were comparable to non-gluten free eggroll options on the grocery store shelves. No one would have guessed these were gluten-free.
The baking instructions were easy and the eggrolls were hot inside in the amount of time indicated. (We did not try the pan fry method but directions for that are on the box also.) The outside wrapper on the eggrolls was crispy though not as browned as I would have expected. Both the chicken and the veggie varieties had lots of tasty, identifiable veggies in the mix. And the wrapper didn’t overpower the stuffing. The eggroll had a good flavor and texture overall.
The boxes contain three eggrolls, which could be an awkward number for a family of four. And while the dumplings we previously reviewed came with their own sauce packets, these did not.
Here are easy stir fry directions to pair with gluten-free eggrolls or dumplings for a quick weeknight meal:
– In a mixing bowl whisk together and set aside:
- ¼ cup gluten free soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons cooking sherry or white wine
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Enough water to bring the total mixture to 1 cup
– Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and drench with corn starch
– Sauté chicken and veggies of your choosing until the chicken is cooked and veggies are at the desired crispness
– Add sauce last
– Serve over rice
