sounds yummy
Yes, it was Good. I left out the thyme and white
wine though since I didn't have either in the house.
So I don't know if those 2 ingredients would have
made the recipe taste even better.

I always eat less than a serving since most foods
when consumed are converted into sugar. So when
I eat less food, I take less Insulin.

A Diabetic should eat foods from all the food groups
since our bodies do require all the vitamins and minerals,
just like anyone else.

Now you have gotten me hungery Terrie. That sounds delish. MMMMmmm......
Seeing there are potatoes in here, aren't carbs a no no for diabetics ? Not trying to be smart, just very curious. I've so much against carbs not being healthy for diabetics who want to lose weight. Thanks.
Well, it's an old old thread, and maybe LC/HF wasn't so well tested back then. I think too, that Terrie may be type 1 and could have prob'ly eaten potatoes as long as she bolused for it - I know she's a pumper. There's flour in it too, so it isn't terribly diabetes friendly.

I'll just close the thread.

But I've made a similar recipe using smashed cauliflower
as topping and not worrying about the thickening and it was very good!
