There are gluten-free substitutes for most foods nowadays. It wasn’t always like this. When I first started the gluten-free diet almost 8 years ago, I was lucky to find one option for some of my beloved foods, let alone multiple options. One food that I just realized didn’t have a gluten-free option up until recently is chow mein noodles. You know, those thin, crunchy noodles that you sprinkle over your stir fry? I remember my mother making homemade stir fry when I was a child and the kit came with those chow mein noodles to finish off the dish.
A few months back I spotted these chow mein noodles on the shelf of my local specialty grocery store, Raisin Rack. I didn’t pick them up at the time, but received some to sample a couple of weeks back. I don’t think I have had regular chow mein noodles since I was a child, so I wasn’t sure that I would be able to accurately tell you guys if these tasted like the non-gluten-free version or not. I didn’t have any stir fry to sprinkle the noodles over, but I did have a large salad that was begging for something crunchy to be added to it.
Palm Kernel Vegetable Oil, Tapioca Starch, Potato Starch, Pasteurized Egg White, Salt, Spices (Sweet Pepper).
The chow mein noodles were the perfect addition to my salad! They had a great flavor and crunch to them. I liked them so much I even found myself eating them right out of the package. Goldbaum’s Chow Mein Noodles can be purchased in select stores across the US and online.
Have you tried these chow mein noodles? Do you miss chow mein noodles?
