Scallop and Artichoke Heart Casserole
Scallops are a good source of protein, vitamin B12, magnesium, and potassium — and best of all, they lend their delicious taste to this casserole!

Ingredients
1 package (9 ounces) frozen artichoke hearts, cooked and drained
1 pound scallops
1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups low-fat (1%) milk
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Dash paprika

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/4 of total recipe

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 – Cut large artichoke hearts lengthwise into halves. Arrange artichoke hearts in even layer in 8-inch square baking dish.

3 – Rinse scallops; pat dry with paper towel. If scallops are large, cut into halves. Arrange scallops evenly over artichokes.

4 – Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add bell pepper and green onions; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Add tarragon, salt, and white pepper; cook and stir over medium heat 10 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Pour sauce over scallops.

5 – Bake, uncovered, 25 minutes or until bubbling and scallops are opaque. Sprinkle with parsley and paprika before serving.

Tip: White pepper is a mild version of the common black pepper. They both originate from the same berries, which are called peppercorns. White pepper helps to maintain consistent color in light foods.

Cheesy Soft Pretzel Twists

February 13, 2021 at 6:01 AM | Posted in diabetes, diabetes friendly, Diabetes Self Management | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I have a recipe for some Cheesy Soft Pretzel Twists. To make these Soft Pretzels you’ll be needing Cooking Spray, Reduced-Fat Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Garlic Powder, Oregano, Dry Yeast Hot Roll Mix, All Purpose Flour, Egg Whites, Water, Salt, and Poppy Seeds. The Pretzels are 139 calories and 21 net carbs per serving. The recipe is from the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more! You can also subscribe to the Diabetes Self Management Magazine. Each issue is packed with Diabetes News and Diabetic Friendly Recipes. I’ve left a link to subscribe at the end of the post. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2021! https://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/

Cheesy Soft Pretzel Twists
Ingredients
Preparation time: 45 minutes
Baking time: 14–16 minutes per pan

Cooking spray
1 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat finely shredded Cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 package (16 ounces) dry yeast hot roll mix, plus ingredients to prepare
All-purpose flour (to prevent sticking)
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Directions
Yield: 16 pretzels
Serving size: 1 pretzel

1 – Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together cheese, garlic powder, and oregano; set aside.

2 – Prepare hot roll mix dough according to package directions (the dough does not need to rise). On a clean, floured surface using clean, floured hands, divide the dough into four equal portions (a sharp knife or pizza cutter works well to cut dough). Shape each portion into a ball. Take one dough ball at a time and divide it into four equal pieces (for a total of 16 pieces). Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope. On a floured surface, pat each rope out until it’s 1 1/2 inches wide. Sprinkle each lightly with cheese mixture. Fold each rope over lengthwise and pat to seal. (You now have sixteen 8-inch dough ropes stuffed with cheese.) Place dough ropes on baking sheets and twist into pretzel shape (pretzels do not need to rise).

3 – In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and water until frothy. Brush pretzels well with egg white mixture (this helps the pretzels brown during baking), sprinkle with salt, then poppy seeds.

4 – Bake for 14–16 minutes, or until golden brown (watch closely during last few minutes of baking). Transfer to a cooling rack.

* Store leftovers in an airtight container or a zip-top bag in the refrigerator. Warm slightly before eating (a toaster oven works nicely to restore outer crispness to pretzels).

TIP: Try warm pizza sauce for dipping.
