Chef Keith Seeber
Operators looking to offer more substantial fare to celebrants can serve up this hearty but healthy version of mole. The meal-in-a-bowl, created by UFood’s chef Keith Seeber, starts with grass-fed beef and incorporates quinoa, farro, butternut squash and beet greens. The recipe also supports zero waste, as it uses ribeye trim as the meat portion.
