Gluten-Free Potstickers

Posted on May 6th, 2011 by Alison Read 5 Comments - Add Your Own »

Yes, you heard me right — gluten-free potstickers! One of the things I miss most being gluten-free is eating Chinese food. Even if you avoid the obvious wheat-based foods, Chinese restaurants are challenging¬† due to the soy sauce used in most dishes. I recently had the pleasure of trying the new Gluten-Free Handmade Asian Style Dumplings made by Feel Good Foods. The verdict? Delicious!! It was such a treat to taste a potsticker again!

gluten-free-potstickersThe gluten-free dumplings come in vegetable, chicken, pork and shrimp, and each are accompanied by a yummy gluten-free dipping sauce. And no MSG.

Vanessa Phillips, the founder of Feel Good Foods, has celiac disease. Her husband and partner, Tryg Siverson, is a chef. So you can see why they were able to 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 darling dumplings? Good news for you on the East Coast (they are based in New York), but for me on the West Coast, I’m outta luck! (For now — I am sure they will make their way here.) Consult the list of where to buy or order from Gluten Free Mall (be aware that these are shipped frozen, so higher shipping charges will apply).

Maybe someday we’ll get Won Tons and Fortune Cookies too!

  1. Thanks for the review. I’ll be looking for them. There are GF fortune cookies made by A Taste of Thai. They are made as rolls, as opposed to the traditional shape. They have a slight coconut flavor and are light and crispy. Looks like they’re peanut-free, too.

  2. Hi Heather,
    Didn’t know about the GF fortune cookies – I will look for those!

  3. Those do look and sound tasty for sure! Thanks for the heads up, Alison. :-)

  4. Just found these at Whole Foods in Novato, CA, and they are very good.

  5. Oh I see they use corn starch. I’ve been gluten/wheat free since 2008 due to some serious health issues and my holistic doctor recommended I also eliminate corn from my diet. Especially because most of it is GMO and not good for me. This last time I saw her this month she was very adement about the corn and how bad it is. Most of the packaged gluten free products unfortunately use corn products and not sure why because they could use tapioca starch instead.

    I will pass this along to my readers who still eat corn products and looking for the pot stickers! They do look yummy!

    Thank you!
