Celery garlic toast

Posted on August 3, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes/diabetic recipe, Starter | Tags: , , |

A delicious starter made with celery and garlic ground together to make an aromatic spread in place of butter.
Both celery and garlic are beneficial for diabetics. I have chosen celery for this recipe as it is very low in carbohydrates and is a storehouse of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron (which is required for healthy eyes, immunity and blood). Garlic on the other hand is helpful in preventing heart disease by reducing the occurrence of clot formation in blood (that can block the arteries).
Serve it with your favourite soup or whole wheat pasta to make a wholesome meal. I assure you that you will not miss the BUTTER.
