I recently attended an online event from Mekeni Food Corporation, entitled “Enjoy More, Guiltless.” The event features Regina Latt, Senior Dietitian at the St. Luke’s Medical Center; and Chef Vince Garcia, President and CEO of Chef Vince Garcia Culinary Group to help moms on how we can serve healthier yet easy-to-prepare foods.
I really enjoyed the cooking session with Chef Vince. He shared a nutritious recipe using Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa as the main ingredient called Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa Casserole. From the looks of it, I think this is something that my kids will like.
Before the event, I was also able to share a recipe using Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa as the main ingredient. I prepared Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa Creamy Pasta. It was actually a left over from our breakfast and made its way to the snack table.
It is so simple that even your kids can prepare it. The ingredients are cooked and sliced Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa, crushed garlic, thinly sliced onion, pasta cooked according to packaging, all purpose cream, salt and pepper.
How to cook Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa Creamy Pasta:
- Saute garlic and onion.
- Add Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa and stir for a few minutes.
- Add a pack All purpose cream.
- When the sauce starts to simmer, season with salt and pepper then toss the pasta.
I usually serve mine with crushed pepper and parmesan cheese.
This is actually my first time to try Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa and though at first I thought it would taste bland, surprisingly, it is very tasteful. I learned from the online event that Gluten is not new.
“It is always present in the grains that we know like rye, barley, and wheat. It’s in products like bread, sauces, condiments, salad dressings, pasta, pizza, processed foods, beer, and in meat products that are processed with extenders and added flavorings or colorings.” Senior Dietitian at the St. Luke’s Medical Center, Regina Latt explained. She noted that following a gluten-free diet may help in losing weight, reducing total caloric and sugar intake, managing diabetes, and reducing bloatedness.
“It is important to note, however, that for any diet concerns or any diet changes that you would like to do, it is important to consult with a doctor or a licensed nutrition professional to help you with that, especially if you have existing medical conditions,” she said.
Knowing about it, I am now more open to include gluten free food like Mekeni Gluten-Free Chicken Longanisa to our grocery list.
