Recipes for Gluten Free Rice, Noodles,
and Other Starchy Sides

Gluten free rice and gluten free noodles are only a couple of the many possible side dishes that can make a gluten free diet interesting. Corn dishes are a staple in many cultures, as well as roots and other starchy vegetables such as plantains and cassava.

There is a fascinating documentary about noodles called Noodle Road produced by KBS America. It travels through the history of noodles, showing that they have traditionally been made from all kinds of starches. You can watch portions of it here, and on YouTube.
