Rarely, if ever am I tempted to "cheat" on my gluten-free diet. It has taken me far to long to heal and recover from the nutritional problems related to untreated Celiac Disease! I have had three endoscopies in the past two and a half years, most recently the end of February. Finally, my villi are starting to perk up, finally my biopsies are starting to show some healing. I don't want to loose ground. I am hyper vigilant about my diet and I never feel sorry for myself. HOWEVER, these Tibetan Momo's, it was all I could do to keep a cheerful attitude as my partner and Tibetan dinner guests enjoyed them.
Our good friends, Pema and Tsamcho and Tsamcho's sister Pema came for dinner a few nights ago. Usually we have Indian food but we made homemade pizza instead. Tsamcho brought these delightful Tibetan delicacys she made from hand and her husband Pema steamed them up in a really great steamer. They are dumplings made with wheat flour and these were stuffed with ground beef, spinach and some onion. Tina ate a full plate of them before touching her pizza. I am not sure if I could recreate them with rice flour or not but I might try. I am hoping to get Tsamsho and Pema to teach me how to make them and see what I can do.
