Here I am, Mr Shadows! Better late than never, eh? LOL

I am not diabetic, but I just purchased this really cool Diabetes Diet Cookbook and wanted to share the recipes in them. this is just one of many I will be sharing.


Cheese and Pepper Frittata

the frittata, a flat Italian omelet, is one of the most versatile of egg dishes. You can improvise fillings by using bits of leftover cooked vegatables, meats, or poultry.

Preparation time: 10 minutes..........Cooking time: 35 minutes

1 tsp of olive oil, preferably extra virgin

3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper

3/4 cup chopped green pepper

3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced fat Monterey jack cheese.

2 Tbl of chopped fresh basil

5 eggs + 2 egg whites, lightly beaten

1/4 tsp salt

ground black pepper.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. coat a 9" oven proof skillet with vegetable oil spray. Place over medium high heat. Add the oil. Heat for 30 seconds. Add the bell peppers. Cook, striring occasionally for about 5 minutes, or until just soft. Sprinkle the cheese and basil into the pan. Add the eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the eggs are set. Let stand to cool slightly. Cut into wedges.

Looks yummy! Almost like a no-crust pizza. smile.gif Anything with red sweet peppers and fresh basil is going to be wonderful. Baking the egg has a different texture from a fried omelet, very nice and fine-textured. (I think I'd tip a few sliced mushrooms in this too.)

Does the recipe have any info how many people this is supposed to serve? Also -- a lot of diabetic recipes work on "exchanges" -- protein, fat and carb that add up to daily allowances so you can vary your diet enjoyably and still keep it balanced. Did this one mention them?

Yes, thank you, that helps! I guess we have to remember that some diabetics have more issues with other nutrients than other individuals do -- I think most of your sodium here is coming from the cheese, and there are low-sodium, low-fat cheeses available for those who need to watch both carbs and salt.

This is useful for more than diabetics -- most doctors will tell you that one of the best diets for regulating weight and complementing a reasonable attempt to up the fitness level with moderate aerobic exercise is the good old 1500 to 2000 calorie ADA diet. Little of this, little of that, lots of variety, keeping an eye on how much of each dietary element in any given day. Common sense!

Go for it, Rose! I'm with you!

Thanks Stormeil! Actually that is why I bought this diabetic cookbook is because I was told the same thing about the best diet out there was put out by the ADA! Only problem is that I have yet to cook any from the book yet! rolleyes.gif

Also, thanks for asking for the dietary details in the beginning as I forgot to include them in the first recipe. smile.gif

This one looks good to me, especially for veggetarians.


Mediterranean Veggie Burger

2 large red leafe lettuce leaves
2 grilled vegetable soy burgers
2 tablespoons of goat cheese
1 bottled roasted red pepper, halved

1/2 cup baby spinach leaves

1. Place the lettuce leaves onto a work surface, with the long sides facing you. With your fingers, press lightly to flatten the center of each

2. Prepare the burgers per the package direction for the microwave. Place one on the center of each lettuce leaf. Top each with 1 tablespoon of the cheese, 1/2 red pepper, and 1/4 cup each of the sprouts and spinach. Fold up the bottom and sides of each lettuce leaf to enclose the burgers. Serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings
Per serving: 140 calories, 8 g carbs,16 g protein, 5 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 10 mg cholesterol, 460 mg sodium, 5 g fiber.

Carb choices: 1/2

Mmmmm . . . that goat cheese and red pepper combination really makes it! Sounds delicious.


This is so simple, and such a treat for people who love their frozen dessert in hot weather! I tried it, and it's very easy. It's a little granular, but even the texture is part of the treat, like eating fresh snow (remember that? smile.gif). Good enough for anybody, after a light summer supper! I tossed just a few fresh blueberries over the top; I can imagine a little drizzle of a raspberry liqueur over the top too:


Cantaloupe Graníta

(from The Joslin Diabetes Gourmet Cookbook (Bantam Books))

(Makes 6 servings)

2 cantaloupes or 1 large honeydew melon -- ripe and juicy
1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lime juice

1. Seed and peel melon, and cut into chunks. Whirl enough of the fruit in a processor or blender to make 3 cups puree (708 ml).
2. Add lime juice to the puree. Pour into a shallow metal pan or bowl. Freeze firm.
3. Remove graníta from freezer and let stand until soft enough to break up with a wooden spoon. Beat until slushy and fairly smooth.
4. Cover and refreeze. Soften at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.

Per serving: 67 calories (6% calories from fat), 2 g protein, 1 g total fat (0 saturated fat), 16 g carbohydrates, 2 g dietary fiber, 0 cholesterol, 17 mg sodium

Diabetic exchanges: 1 carbohydrate (fruit)
