Arroz con Huevos

This hearty and satisfying dish, Mexican-style rice topped with poached eggs and garnished with shredded cheddar cheese, can be served anytime of the day.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup water
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons bottled taco sauce or salsa
1/2 cup chopped tomato
4 large eggs
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions:

1 – In medium saucepan stir together water, rice, onion, garlic and salt, if desired. Cover. Over high heat, bring to boiling. Reduce heat to keep water simmering. About 10 minutes before rice is done (check rice package for total cooking time needed), stir in green pepper and taco sauce. Re-cover and cook until rice is tender, about 10 minutes longer. Stir in tomato. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm while poaching eggs.
2 – In saucepan or deep omelet pan, bring 2 to 3 inches of water to boiling. Reduce heat to keep water gently simmering. Break cold eggs, 1 at a time, into custard cup or saucer or break several into bowl. Holding dish close to water’s surface, slip eggs, 1 by 1 into water. Cook until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, about 3 to 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, lift out eggs. Drain in spoon or on paper towels and trim any rough edges, if desired.
3 – To serve, spoon 1/4 of the reserved rice mixture onto each of 4 plates. Top each with 1 of the poached eggs, sprinkle each egg with 1 tablespoon of the cheese.

Makes 4 servings.

Individual Oven Baked Spaghetti Recipe for Diabetics

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes

Cooking spray
1 cup cooked spaghetti
1 cup spaghetti meat sauce
2 dashes black pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/8 cup finely diced onion
1/8 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded, reduced-fat, mild Cheddar cheese

Directions
Yield: 1 serving
Serving size: Whole recipe

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an individual casserole dish or pie pan with cooking spray and set aside. If using leftover spaghetti or sauce, warm them, separately, in a saucepan or microwave. In a small bowl, combine spaghetti, pepper, and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat spaghetti. Spoon into baking dish. Top evenly with sauce. Sprinkle with mushrooms, onion, and green pepper, and then with Cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through.

2 – If you don’t have a favorite homemade spaghetti sauce, try adding browned and drained ground round (about 2 ounces meat per 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce) to a spaghetti sauce low in fat and sodium (such as Healthy Choice). This recipe also works with meatless sauce.
