I love Asian inspired recipes. Chinese. Vietnamese. Korean. Each region offers a flavor and technique that I love. While some may be nontraditional, I’m sharing gluten free recipes I think we’d all be lucky to eat this Lunar New Year!

Unlike the American calendar, the New Year starts on a different date each year in the Asian world. This holiday involves many traditions, including food. In particular, certain foods theoretically bring good luck for the year to come.

The list includes dumplings, spring rolls, noodles, fish, glutinous rice, and fruit. Below you will find various gluten free dishes, grouped by type, from bloggers I trust. Hopefully you find something new to try for the Lunar New Year, and expand your palate!

A Note About Authentic Asian Cuisine

I will admit that I have no Asian ethnic background. Nor do most of the creators whose recipes are shared here.  I encourage you to expand your following of Asian recipe creators. Sites I recommend include Nom Nom Paleo, Healthy GF Asian, Light Orange Bean, amd KimChiMari. In addition, Nut Free Wok. is a good site to follow. Her blog is not gluten free focused, but she offers gluten free ingredient suggestions in her recipes.
