Recipes for Diabetes: Wholesome Vegetable and Lentil Soup
It’s no secret that what you eat has a profound effect on blood glucose levels. And a healthful diet not only supports optimal blood sugar, it also helps to address factors such as excess weight and insulin resistance.
Eating for optimal blood sugar doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor or variety. This is one of several delicious and diabetes-friendly recipes I’ll be sharing with you in this blog.
Wholesome Vegetable and Lentil Soup
- 1 large diced onion
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- Olive oil spray
- 5 cups low-sodium, vegetable or chicken stock
- 1 sliced carrot
- ¾ cup rinsed lentils
- 14-ounce can finely chopped tomatoes with juice (low-sodium preferred)
- 1 bunch washed and coarsely chopped kale
Spray the bottom of a large stockpot with olive oil and sauté onions and garlic for 10 minutes over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally. Serve as soon as the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
