From main dishes, snacks to desserts, you can now enjoy your favorite dishes at home with these delicious gluten-free Japanese recipes and ideas.
I have to admit that I had little knowledge about gluten free eating until I started receiving requests from readers who either had gluten intolerance themselves, or were cooking for a family member on a gluten-free diet.
Since rice is the staple of Japanese cuisine, it may seem relatively easy to swap out certain ingredients like soy sauce and still enjoy majority of the foods. But, wheat protein is still prevalent in large proportion of Japanese foods. Popular Japanese dishes like soba and udon noodles, tempura, karaage, katsu, Japanese curry and so on often contain wheat.
Hearing how much you missed some of these foods, I started to tinker with gluten-free recipes in hope to give you the opportunity to enjoy them again. To my delight, some of these gluten-free recipes turned out to be so good that I decided to use the same preparations in the future.
Here I’ve compiled a list of 15 delicious gluten-free Japanese recipes that I hope will come in handy when your cravings hit. Let me know in the comments below if you wish to see more gluten-free recipes on Just One Cookbook!
