Luckily for us, About.com's Food and Cooking Guides have posted a lot of recipes for gluten-free Chinese dishes. In fact, far more gluten-free Chinese recipes are on About.com than I can link to from this page. Take a look at these, and then try searching for some on your own. Just remember to use gluten-free tamari instead of soy sauce, and make sure your other condiments are gluten-free as well.
