Anti-refined carbs dishes for a crowd!

Hey everyone,
I have found myself in the strange-to-me position of cooking for a group that includes someone who can't eat refined grains at all (no white flour, white rice, etc) or any kind of sweetener (which is less of a deal). If anyone has favorite recipes that meet these criteria, are reasonable to cook for a group, and reheat well, I would love to hear them! Although low-carb/high-protein is great, the person isn't diabetic, so it's really avoiding these specific ingredients that is key.

Thanks so much!

-cut tofu into rectangles
-marinade tofu for at least 30 minutes in 1/4 c tamari or soy sauce and 1 tbl blackstrap molasses.
-make a spice combination of thyme, sage, garlic powder, and a little salt and pepper.
-roll the marinaded tofu in the spice mixture and put on grill (or in pan or oven, but grill is best)
-cook until heated through
