Hi dear readers.
Spinach is a nutrient-rich leafy green that can make a healthy choice to any diabetic's diet. With its low glycemic index and high fiber content, spinach is an ideal ingredient for a diabetes-friendly recipe.
I have found this simple spinach rice diabetic recipe and wanted to share with you. In fact, it is one of our traditional kitchen treasures:))) It is low in calories, and contains the ingredients for a healthy diabetic eating. Hope you can enjoy.
For this simple recipe, I took:
Green leaves: Spinach, Fresh Sorrel Leaves, Spring onion, Fresh mint leaves, Parsley
A small cup of rice
Salt to taste
After washing the leaves thoroughly with water, I cut them and put inside a dish to boil.
It is better to steam them instead of boiling. I could not use my steamer as it was "out-of-date":)))
I tried to boil until not vanishing their color:)
Let them reduce the volume a little bit. Then pour the rice. Add water until cooked (I preferred al-dente; you can choose others too).
When it is cooked, pour olive oil and salt to taste. It is advised to use 1 tablespoon olive oil for person.
At the end, enjoy your greeny plate:)))
One of my friends always enjoys the following spinach recipe:
Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast:
This spinach and feta stuffed chicken breast is a perfect diabetes friendly recipe that is both nutritious and delicious. The chicken breasts are filled with protein and healthy fats, while the spinach and feta cheese provide a burst of flavor and vitamins. Enjoy this dish with a side of roasted vegetables or a fresh salad for a complete and balanced meal.
So, as you might see, you can modify your own recipes according to your diabetic needs, and of course mouth taste.
