Frozen food distributor Central Foods has added to its buffet, starter and tapas range for foodservice with the launch of vegan-friendly, gluten-free Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites.
Perfect for caterers working across the foodservice sector, the KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites are delicious cauliflower florets coated in gluten-free and vegan Moroccan-style spiced quinoa breadcrumbs.
Serve as a sharing platter, a tapas dish, a starter or accompaniment – or add them to any buffet menu for a tasty treat that’s sure to go down well with all diners, not just those with dietary requirements.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs, the KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites are part of the growing range of free-from products supplied by Central Foods, one of the UK’s leading frozen food distributors.
MD Gordon Lauder said: “We are seeing a growing demand for great quality, free-from products for foodservice across all day parts and all serving occasions. Increasingly, operators are looking for items that will suit a variety of dietary needs, as it helps to avoid menu proliferation.
“The KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites are novel and versatile – and bang on trend too. Cauliflower is currently a foodie favourite – we’re seeing it served as cauli steaks, en-croute, as ‘rice’ and in other formats – and it has a host of health and nutritional benefits too. Middle Eastern and Persian flavours are also on trend, so this product really does tick all the boxes for what’s hot and happening right now in foodservice.”
Oven bake or deep fry the KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites from frozen in as little as just 4 minutes. As natural products, the florets range in size/weight from approximately 15-35g each.
Northamptonshire-based Central Foods supplies more than 400 different lines into foodservice, ranging from vegetarian and free-from items, meat products, bakery items and canapés through to buffet products, desserts and puddings. It currently sells to more than 240 independent wholesalers, as well as larger national and regional wholesalers, and foodservice caterers across the entire foodservice industry including schools, universities, pubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, leisure centres, garden centres, cafés, care homes and many other outlets.
