When you go to a Chinese restaurant, do you opt for the chopsticks, or the plastic fork?
Personally, I always go for the chopsticks whenever possible. Even if it’s at Panda Express. In America, we use forks so regularly, that chopsticks are a novelty for me. I learned how to use them when I was 10 years old, and while I’m not an expert, I did take to them pretty quickly.
Needless to say, I jump on any opportunity to use chopsticks, and National Chopsticks Day is too good of one to pass up for anyone! Even if you don’t know how to use chopsticks, you can still get into the spirit by whipping up some Chinese food and taking a stab at it.
I’ve put together some gluten-free Chinese food recipes so you can do just that. Don’t worry if you end up finishing off the meal with a good ol’ fork and knife—the important part is that you participated! And got some yummy food at the same time. 😉
“This quick easy stir-fry uses skirt steak, mushroom, sweet red pepper and Chinese broccoli or greens to deliver big flavor and a tasty meal.” –Celiac.com
“I decided to wing it and came up with a spicy orange chicken… and it was DAMN good. Really hit the spot, and my full-gluten husband even preferred it to actual, non-gf takeout.” –Marie from CelebrationGeneration.com
“This recipe has reached my TOP 20 FAV RECIPES! It was so, so good. Every time ML and I would walk past the kitchen we kept getting more and more excited for dinner as the aroma became stronger and stronger. The flavors were simply mouthwatering and you won’t believe how easy this crock pot dinner was!” –Love At Home Blog
“General Tso’s Chicken is a popular Chinese takeout dish that consists of fried chicken chunks in an addicting sauce that is both sweet and spicy. I’ve taken all the flavors of the classic dish and jammed them into these little balls of poultry bliss! You can use ground chicken or turkey for the most authentic flavor, but ground pork would also work well.” –IBreatheImHungry.com
“This Asian-inspired take on tasty, slow-simmered comfort food is so easy and absolutely delish! Plus, sometimes there’s no time for anything more than setting it and forgetting it. Forgetting it is a little tough when it smells this good, though. Try this scrumptious honey sesame chicken and keep dinner simple, folks. All you need are a bunch of basic ingredients and a patient sense of smell!” –TheComfortofCooking.com
