Having a gluten allergy has forced me to become creative in the kitchen, especially when it comes to side dishes. Although rice is easy to prepare and gluten-free, it lacks significant nutritional benefits.
Cauliflower on the other hand is low in fat and carbohydrates and high in dietary fiber, folate, water and vitamin C - making it a great alternative to traditional starchy sides, just like steel cut oats!
Below is my basic riced cauliflower recipe and a few tasty variations. As always, I encourage you to experiment with new flavors and share your ideas with us!
As Part II of our series, we’re happy to introduce Grainful’s President, Jan Pajerski! After graduating from Cornell’s College of Engineering with a BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Jan purchased a one-way ‘around the world’ ticked and proceeded to explore the world. He later ended up in Western Canada where he furthered his engineering studies at the University of Calgary, started a career in the Oil and Gas industry, and skied the powder of the Rockies every chance he got. After a few years, an opportunity with Grainful arose, and Jan’s passion for entrepreneurship and his love of food led him back to Ithaca, NY.
At Grainful, our team is like family. As the first in a multi-part series, we’re excited to introduce Chef Jeannine Sacco, Grainful’s CFO: Chief Food Officer. After 15 years in the food industry, Chef Sacco began collaborating with Ithaca-area entrepreneurs to develop a business focused on great tasting, healthy and convenient meals. Several delicious concepts later, Chef Sacco became the culinary genius behind our steel cut oat entrees!
