What Japanese dishes are gluten-free?
There's actually more gluten-free, safe ingredients that are used in Japanese cooking than you may realize. Generally, these are common ingredients used by Japanese people on an everyday basis to make these delicious dishes:
- onigiri without contain soy sauce
- mochi and mochi-based sweets
- yakitori that has salt instead of soy sauce
Tips to keep in mind
- Any recipe that uses soy sauce should be swapped out for tamari soy sauce. Tamari tastes very similar to soy sauce but is made from soybean miso paste instead of a byproduct from soybeans, wheat, and salt.
- Always avoid traditional ramen noodles as they're made with gluten. Instead look for rice noodles that are made with rice instead of gluten, making them naturally, the perfect gluten-free choice.
- Another great option to keep in mind are soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and can also be called buckwheat noodles. These are another common ingredient that is great to toss in a hot soup, use as a side dish instead of plain rice, or use as a base of a bowl to fill with your favorite Japanese protein favorites on top.
