Blog 30 Days of Diabetes--Day 22

“Mouthwatering Monday”   – What’s your favorite Thanksgiving Day recipe? Share it here.

I am not really sure I can choose only one recipe, so I will share 2 or 3.

Harvest Nut Roast

1 ½ c. chopped onion
3 Tbs water
2 Tbs oil (olive is best)
2 ½ c finely chopped celery
¾ c chopped walnuts
¾ c ground pecans   
1 ½ tsp salt
2 c soy milk (plain Silk is good)
1 ¼ tsp basil
½ tsp sage or 1 ¼ tsp thyme
3 c whole grain bread crumbs

Saute onions in water and oil until clear.  Put in bowl and add remaining ingredients, omitting bread crumbs.  Stir together well.  Fold in bread crumbs.  Pour into greased 8” x 8” baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.  To prevent overbrowning on top, may need to cover with foil near end of baking time.  Delicious with gravy.
