Sansum Diabetes Research Institute - OAG Cooking Demo

Last week I was given the opportunity to share an OAG cooking demo with the Sansum Diabetes Research Institute! Sansum Diabetes Research Institute provides educational classes on diabetes self management in a community setting.  One of the components of the program is teaching and promoting healthy cooking!

I would like to share a product testimonial from the Director of Diabetes Education & Outreach from the Sansum Diabetes Research Institute:

“Outer Aisle Gourmet’s products offer a fresh, new way of enjoying long-time favorite foods that have been eliminated from diabetes-friendly eating plans. In today’s cooking demo, participants couldn’t believe that they were enjoying fried rice, pizza and pasta, completely guilt and worry-free. They left feeling satisfied, excited, and like a whole new culinary-world is available to them.”
- Jenifer Gaffaney Swartzentruber, MS, RD, CDE

Jenifer, thank you so much for the opportunity to share our new product line with your group. I had so much fun!  This kind of customer (the one that has health issues that require a change in eating habits) is the person that really drives me to get our product line to market.

Below is the Stir-Fry Recipe that I shared with the group:

2 packs OAG cauliflower rice
½ cup diced carrots
½ cup green peas
1 egg
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP coconut aminos or Bragg’s aminos (or  soy sauce)

Put the peas and carrots in a small sauce pan with 1 cup of water and cook for about 2 minutes.  Heat the coconut oil in a large sauce pan.  Pour 2 packs of cauliflower rice (4 cups) into coconut oil and sauté for 2 minutes.  Make a hole in the center of the cauliflower rice and break the egg in it and stir until done.  Incorporate the egg in with the cauliflower rice and then add the peas and carrots.  Sauté the whole mixture for 2 minutes until done.  Add the coconut aminos, stir and serve hot.  Serves 4.
