Buy rice noodles at a Chinese grocer. They are much cheaper than in the store. They also have more dried foods there, which are great for camping.

Buy either General Tso's sauce or Peanut Sauce at a grocery store. Check out the other asian sauces they have.

Make rice noodles, add one of your sauces, and 1/4 cup of cashews or almonds. Add cooked veggies if you like. Tastes great.

You can also buy rice flour, sweet rice flour, tapioca & potato starch flour at a Oriental grocery.  They are cheaper that a health food store.  I have foumd sweet rice flour makes very good gravey.

I second that about going to the Asian store to get gluten-free noodles and other food.

Also, don't forget, potatoes and rice are gluten-free, super-cheap, and available everywhere.

Kelly, I just read my Meijer brand Julienne and Augratin potatoes, and they have gluten in them. Doh.
