I think it’s great that a lot of restaurants these days have gluten free menus. Only 3% of the population is a true celiac but over the years I have seen so may people change their health, heal their gut, reduce the occurrence of migraines etc etc just by cutting American gluten out of their diet. Another observation that I have made is that people will go to Europe and decide to eat it and feel fine (this happened to me!) Why is this? Some think it is they way we have hybridized our wheat and there are now more proteins in the wheat than European strains, ones that we have not adapted to as well. Some think it is from the desiccation of the wheat before it is harvested (Wheat is not a GMO crop but some crops are sprayed with glyphosate just prior to harvest) I have found no peer reviewed science to support either of those claims, but the claims still exist. Might possibly we just be better at diagnosing food sensitivities than we have been in the past? Who knows but I can’t argue with the fact that cutting gluten from my diet has made a difference for me, and I highly suggest that everyone try it for 30 days, then add it back in to see if makes a difference for you! Anyway I digress, PF Changs has a great gluten free menu and my favorite thing on it is their lettuce wraps. This is my recreation of them! Enjoy!
p.s. I use Coconut Aminos in the recipe. This is a brown liquid made from coconut that tastes a lot like soy sauce and can be used in any recipe that calls for soy or tamari sauce (both which contain gluten unless labeled as gluten-free) soy is also a reactive food to a lot of people and so I avoid both.
