|shelves of chinese sauces|
I got excited at my local Cooperative supermarket a while ago because they had rice noodles in a bag with the vegetables. I don't usually buy the ready-chopped vegetable medleys for stir fry, but I decided to make a meal with all convenience foods using the rice noodles.
One pack of rice noodles. One pack of prepared mange-tout, baby corn cobs, beansprouts etc. Need a sauce. Looked at the array of sauces. Every single one had wheat in. I know soy sauce has wheat in, but I was surprised to find that there wasn't a single jar of ready made 'chinese' cooking sauce that was gluten free. I went and checked the (very small) 'free-from' section. Nothing there either.
I put the rice noodles and vegetable pack back on the shelves and cooked something else instead.
