Diabetic Side Dishes
Round out your meal with these low-sugar, low-fat, and high-flavor side dishes.
Because there is not just one type of diabetes, there is no one diet that works for everyone. Our collection of side dish recipes offer low-sugar and low-fat alternatives to otherwise unsuitable dishes for those looking to maintain blood sugar levels and a healthy lifestyle.
First up is our Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans and Pearl Onions. Dress up green beans with pearl onions and balsamic vinegar to give this worthy-of-a-special-occasion side dish a nice flavor.
Creamy goat cheese crowns a refreshingly bracing salad. Because the asparagus is shaved, it does not have to be cooked. Thick asparagus spears work best when it comes to making ribbons like these.
For an easy side that's ready in less than 15 minutes, try these sautéed veggies. Only 3 ingredients are needed to enhance the fresh flavors of snow peas and red bell pepper.
Summer savory is slightly bitter and has an aroma similar to that of thyme. It adds a unique twist to the typical combination of tomato and basil.
