One of the things that can be a challenge for the hospital kitchen is providing meals for patients with special dietary needs. This is particularly true when it comes to patients who are gluten sensitive. Culinary Specialties has developed some new and customizable menu items in 2019 that can help you to meet patient needs and improve the quality and ease of preparing food. Here are some of our latest offerings.
- Gluten Free Quinoa Falafel – Chickpeas and quinoa are mixed to combine a tasty alternative with plenty of protein. We use gluten free rice flour as a binder. They are vegan too for patients who live by a very specific diet. The only major allergen contained in our falafel is soy.
- Gluten Free Quesadillas – We use a gluten free tortilla to make these delicious quesadillas. Chicken, feta cheese, roasted red peppers, and jalapenos provide a southwestern flavor. Besides soy, these quesadillas also contain milk ingredients.
- Gluten Free Paella Croquettes – Paella is a classic Spanish dish that no one will ever expect to see on a hospital menu. However, these croquettes make it accessible to your patients. Plus, we use gluten free breadcrumbs to ensure even more of your patients can enjoy this tasty combo of rice, shrimp, chicken, and chorizo.
