Pork and diet have the opposite meaning, for many people. But with diabetes, pork is the allowed product. You can choose low-fat pork such as tenderloin and then diet pork soup becomes quite real and tasteful.
Besides the meat, there will be plenty of vegetable proteins in the soup. And the absence of carbohydrates such as potatoes and grains make this dish truly diabetic.
What You Need
Pork tenderloin 17,5 oz.
Water 0,5 gallons
Beans 3,5 oz.
Peas 3,5 oz.
Garlic 2 cloves
Champignon mushroom 3,5 oz.
Tomato paste 1,8 oz.
How to make
Chop the pork into small pieces, place it into the pot with water and make the stock. Add some salt after it starts to boil. Don’t forget to remove the foam.
Soak the beans overnight.
Peel the onion and carrot. Chop them finely.
Slice the mushrooms in stripes.
Chop the garlic finely.
When the stock is ready, add beans, veggies, mushrooms, and peas into the pot. Cook for 10 more minutes.
Add garlic and tomato paste. Cook until the beans are soft. The time of the preparation depends on the variety of beans. I suggest using white beans for soups.
When you see that the soup is ready, add chopped green herbs. For this soup I chose parsley. Cook for 5 more minutes and turn off the heat. The soup is done.
Eat soups more often with diabetes. They are usually low in carbs and keep you full. You can add some potatoes to this soup, if you wish. It will make it heartier. Moreover, with compensated diabetes potatoes are allowed. You can have 3 potatoes per meal. It is a normal portion allowed by all endocrinologists. Don’t forget to count your carbohydrates units using the bread units. When it comes to the glycemic index of soup, it is pretty low. The largest GI is in the beans. But the index falls into the green zone, so don’t you worry!
