Gluten-Free Dumplings: Feel Good Foods Giveaway

46 Comments 24 January 2011

Chicken, my personal favorite!

Yay! Gluten-Free Dumplings have arrived! And I’ve arranged for you to win a package containing one box of each kind.

Feel Good Foods is excited to offer a line of gluten-free, chef-inspired, Asian-style dumplings. The dumplings come in 4 different varities: vegetable, chicken, pork and shrimp. They contain all natural ingredients with no MSG, artificial flavors, preservatives or additives; and are accompanied by a 1.25 ounce gluten-free dipping sauce.

Feel Good Foods specializes in creating gluten-free meals that anyone can enjoy. Their goal is to help customers be worry-free at mealtime, without having to compromise on taste or quality.

Vanessa is the inspiration behind Feel Good Foods. When diagnosed with celiac disease, she had a difficult time accepting the limitations of her new diet. Having grown up in a cosmopolitan restaurant business, Vanessa had always enjoyed a diverse array of food. Constantly searching for tasty food, she met her husband Tryg and began exploring gluten-free cooking; before long, the idea for Feel Good Foods was born. Today Vanessa and Tryg own Friedman’s Lunch, a comfort-food restaurant inside New York City’s Chelsea Market. All the restaurant’s selections can be prepared gluten free, and she strives to continually expand the list of gluten-free options for her loyal customers.

Vanessa and Tryg are excited to continue to grow the line of Feel Good Foods and offer more exciting gluten-free, frozen foods for people to enjoy in their home.

Isn’t this exciting?! Vanessa is one of us, so we can not only trust her, but she knows what we miss and crave!

    Oh, i wish I could have them-but I checked their website for ingredients and they contain cornstarch and xanthan gum. I wish more products took multiple allergies into account.

    I am polish…and I miss perogies, this would be a wonderful somewhat substitute.

      ben cappel says:

      hey, you know there are GF perogies available from Conte’s (see and there are some good authentic ones made by miller’s gluten free here in NJ. you should def try them.

      the fgf dumplings are also great, but are very different than perogies.

    Sounds so delicious! When can we see those tasty tidbits in Austin, Texas?!

    Thanks for telling us about these Kelly! It’s smart when companies realize there are traditional foods that are already gluten free if precautions are taken. I hope more companies will figure it out.

    There are a lot of foods in China like these dumplings, for instance, made with all gluten free ingredients, but then they have soy sauce, which of course, has wheat. So it can be frustrating-especially to people like a woman named Tara who wrote me. She’s living gluten free in China so I gave her a list of foods to look for.

    There’s a lot of marketing potential if you read this and are looking for ideas.

    These dumplings look terrific, and I, too look forward to them making there way out west!

    Thanks again!

    Justin G. says:

    Lol! My friend posted a shot of some homemade shtaki/leek and tofu/spinach dumplings on FB a few days ago. Said he was thinking of starting a food cart and wanted to know how much to charge for 8. I told him I’d pay $15 if he could make em GF and if he located near my office in the financial district. Guess I can tell him not to bother now..! =D

    Lisa F says:

    I would love to try these ! They sound great !

  41. 41
    Kristen says:

    I found these dumplings to be… a bit chewy/chalky. Maybe I didn’t cook them correctly (stir fry), but the consistency was very hard to get down. I later had a reaction to something in the meal – not sure exactly what at this point, perhaps eating too quickly. But I’m sort of weary of finishing the box. The filling was good though (chicken).

    Amber says:

    I bought these at the Wegmans in Northboro, MA. I was SO excited to try them!

    I prepared them according to package directions and they were terrible. They turned into absolute mush and permanently caramelized my non-stick pan.

    Really disappointing. 🙁

      Kelly says:

      I would give them another try! They didn’t work out for me in the beginning either. Then it turned out I was using the wrong pan. I know how disappointing it is, but they are worth it!
