There are only a few days left in the month of May. I can’t believe how quickly it went! Celiac Awareness Month is winding down and we are thrilled to be partnering with Qrunch Foods to offer a giveaway for our readers. What an interesting way to spell “crunch,” huh? Qrunch Foods makes a line of gluten-free, veggie burgers that are made from quinoa, hence the “Q” in Qrunch. More about Qrunch Foods:
My business partner and co-founder of the company, Brad Holley, is a classically trained chef. I’m a former restaurant marketing executive. Brad’s daughter is gluten-intolerant, and so is my wife.
We knew from their experience that finding tasty, convenient gluten-free products could be frustrating. And we wondered why food that was “good for you” tasted so tasteless. It seemed to us that “gluten-free” had become associated with anything free of good flavors and “vegan” was simply thought of us as “yuck.”
So, we began tasting and experimenting with organic grains, produce, spices and other ingredients with the goal of incorporating them into something we’d want to eat ourselves—more important, offer our loved ones.
But we didn’t take the usual, soy-worn path. We looked to some lesser-used, unique ingredients because they were so delicious and could meet the requirements of our gluten-free family members and vegetarian and vegan friends.
The result is the QRUNCH Burger. It has the subtle, nutty taste of quinoa (hence the Q in QRUNCH), the crunchiness of millet, and the goodness of organic vegetables.
There are several different varieties of Qrunch Burgers:
- Spicy Italian
- Green Chile with Pinto Beans
- Classic Curry
- Spicy Buffalo
Qrunch products are free of gluten, corn, soy, egg, nut, dairy and MSG.They are also low in sodium and non-GMO verified.
