Egg Rolls

Free of: Gluten, Corn, Dairy, Egg, Shellfish, Fish
I cook these up for lunch and the kids gobble them up.

1 lb of ground pork
1 large carrot grated
1/2 medium onion finely diced
1/4 package of rice sticks
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 pinches of salt
1 tsp of sugar
2 King black mushrooms rehydrated in hot water and then chop up finely.
1 package of rice wrappers
Oil for frying

1. Soak rice sticks in hot water for 15 minutes.  Drain and cut into small pieces ( about 1-2 inch pieces).
2. Combine all the ingredients together including the rice noodles cut up.
3.  Have a shallow bowl of warm water to soak each rice wrapper in until it softens and then place on surface to fill with your meat filling.  Roll them up tightly, making sure to tuck in the ends.  You can make them skinny or fat, however you like them.
4.  Once you are done wrapping them, check your oil to make sure it is HOT.  Deep fry the egg rolls on high heat until golden brown.  It takes about 3 minutes.
5. Let it cool before you bite into one or you'll be sorry.  Enjoy with the Thai Chili sauce.


  1. Hello,
    I am a mother with celiac disease and several food allergies. I have a husband with celiac disease and several food allergies. Together we have three sons ages 4,6,and 8 all with celiac disease and several food allergies. We have been gluten, dairy, egg, poultry, corn, nightshades, pork, blueberry, shellfish mostly all grains rice in rotation, and soy free for three years now. I must say it has gotten easier in time. I just wish the meal planning came easier. I just wanted to say you are in my prayers ! Not too many understand our suffering at this time. Thankfully for our lord Jesus Christ does! May love, peace and encouragement come your way always when you need it. From someone who came across your blog in a time looking for encouragment as well and received it! Many blessings to you- Kimberly

  2. It is nice to know that there are other people out there with what I call 'crazy' allergies. Like who is allergic to chicken?!!! We are ! In our society where chicken is commonly served, it seems 'crazy'....and yet here we are.

    I do agree that one of the biggest challenges is meal planning. Not because I can't plan, but because life happens... more often than it doesn't. I find myself some days scrambling around trying to rack my brains as to what is for lunch today, because something unexpected has happened and my initial meal plans won't fit into my schedule.

    So thanks for your encouraging words and prayers. I can always use a prayer :) And my many blessings to you.
