Originally from a diabetic cookbook, it's my preferred way to enjoy baked beans, even though I'm not diabetic (DH is), because it's so easy and the taste is rich & savoury, without all the creamy sauce. Canned beans work just as well, if you like. 240 calories per serving, 35 g carbs, 9 g protein, 7 g fat. Prep time does not include soaking beans overnight and cooking them beforehand (they would need only 20 minutes cooking time to be ready to use).
All out of the freezer, put together from bits and pieces frozen for future use. Throw them altogether in a wok with some spices and you have an easy side for supper on a rushed week night. While this is cooking make the rest of your meal.
I had never heard of this dish before tasting it last summer at my fiancee's house. Then, everywhere I went it began to pop up. Its simple, down-to-earth charm depends upon the freshness of the ingredients- I can't wait for tomato season to return!
This makes a beautiful side dish to serve with pork or chicken. I use a combination of yellow and red bell peppers for a wonderful color combination. The recipe is from The Diabetic Cookbook with some minor changes.
Finally got to try this...it was deeelish, but then again, I've never had "real" eggnog. Mom always makes boiled custard for Christmas and I could literally bathe in that stuff. I love that custard stuff so much I request it year-round. Occasionally, I get some. This is great and I hope other diabetics will give it a try.
It is a variation on a cucumber salad my grandmother always makes in the late spring and summer. Of course, she uses real dill out of her garden. In any case, my dad is now diabetic and so we made some substitutions. It is a refreshing addition to any meal.
This is another one of those simple recipes that takes minutes to make but are old fashioned good. The cabbage has beautiful color and it is still crisp. Brings out the flavor of the cabbage Use the other half of the cabbage for coldslaw etc.or invite more people over :-)
