Diabetic Lunch Ideas Part 2

Hey Folks,

Awesome post below on one “Farmhouse Vegetable Soup”  written by DiabetesIreland . I found this on the Diabetes.ie and I’m reprinting the whole thing here for your convenience.

People with diabetes are advised to follow a no added salt diet, so avoid added salt as suggested in the recipe to reduce the sodium content as there will already be salt in the stock cubes. When buying stock cubes it is a good idea to try the reduced salt variety.

Vegetable soup counts towards 1 of your 5 a day.
Carbohydrate: Remember adding bread to this recipe will increase the total carbohydrate

Ingredients – Serves 4 Adults
3 medium carrots
1 medium turnip
1 medium parsnip
2 leeks
1 medium onion
8 mushrooms
3 medium tomatoes
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
50g / 2 oz. of plain flour
150ml / ¼ pint of low fat milk
2 vegetable stock cubes dissolved in 1 litre / 1¾ pints of water

Wash, peel and dice carrots, turnips and parsnips
Wash and chop leeks, chop onion and slice mushrooms
Chop the tomatoes
Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and gently fry onion and mushrooms
Add carrots, turnips, parsnips and leeks and fry gently
Stir in the flour to absorb fat, gradually stir in the semi-skimmed milk
Add stock and bring to boil, stirring continuously
Add tomatoes, pepper and a pinch of salt if desired
Cover saucepan and simmer gently for about 45 minutes

This will add to the total carbohydrate of your meal and so will affect blood glucose readings
