1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp peanut oil
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp tahini (pureed sesame seeds)
1 tsp chopped fresh ginger
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp Splenda Granulated
1 pinch red pepper flakes
48 medium asparagus spears, trimmed, peeled
In food processor or blend, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, oil, water, tahini, ginger, garlic, Splenda, and pepper flakes; mix until thoroughly blended to make a sauce.
Fill a large skillet halfway full of water, cover and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and simmer just until crisp-tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well. Do not rinse.
Transfer the drained asparagus to serving plater or shallow bowl and pour the sauce over the hot asparagus and toss to coat.
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you!
