Meet Lauren from Flora & Vino

Hi there, I’m Lauren, the plant-based recipe creator, food photographer, and writer behind Flora & Vino. Flora & Vino promotes healthy and balanced living through a whole foods diet. All of my recipes are plant-based and many are also refined sugar-free, gluten free, and oil free. I’m inspired by colorful produce, group fitness, tahini drizzle, and my golden retriever puppy, Harper. You can find me at my blog, Flora & Vino, and follow along on Instagram @flora_and_vino.

I’m having a major cauliflower moment, so the next logical step for me was to make it the main course. Of course, it’s more of a meal when paired with Jilz Crackers. I love these Cracker Crusted Cauliflower Steaks because they’re gluten free (with grain-free options), dairy free, and packed with flavor. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, this veggie-centric dish is the perfect recipe to mix up your routine eats. I served my “steaks” over quinoa with fresh basil, lemon, and microgreens, but some other ideas are over gluten free pasta, potato mash, or a bed of greens. Check out the full recipe here.

Jilz Gluten Free Crackerz is a company born from a homemade cracker recipe transformed into a healthful snack produced for consumers across the country. Jill Morris, CEO and founder of Jilz Gluten Free, went looking for a great tasting, grain-free cracker and found none that could meet her criteria. From modest beginnings in her home kitchen, she decided to create her own nutritious and delicious recipe free of soy, corn, dairy, sugar, grain, and fillers.

“After developing the cracker recipe in my kitchen, it is beyond exciting to debut our three cracker flavors, Cracked Pepper & Sea Salt, Mediterranean, and Tuscan, at The Fancy Food Show in San Francisco,” states Jill Morris, Owner and CEO of Jilz Gluten Free.
