Before long, National Mustard Day will be upon us. This year, it’s scheduled to fall on the 2nd. So we thought it was high time to share a few diabetic recipes that involve the tasty condiment. Here’s a look at four simple meal ideas that may help you and yours join in on the August celebration:
1.) Burgers with Curry Mustard
Whether you love veggie burgers, hamburgers or turkey burgers it doesn’t matter. We’ve got a super simple curry mustard recipe that is sure to please. Just take 2 teaspoons of curry powder and add it to ½ cup of your favorite mustard. Stir the two ingredients together well and then slather it onto your burger before taking a big, juicy bite.
2.) Veggies with Tangy Sauce
If you are in the mood for something a lot lighter, whip up a crudités tray and our Asian inspired mustard sauce. To make the sauce, combine ½ cup of mustard with 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt and 2 tablespoons of organic soy sauce. Many brands of organic soy sauce, like Kikkoman, don’t contain added sugar. So you may want to look at the labels before settling on a soy sauce that’s right for your diabetic diet plan.
3.) Grilled Proteins with Apple Mustard Sauce
Not a fan of soy and yogurt? Don’t worry. We’ve got another diabetic recipe that may suit your needs. This one is made with 1 cup of unsweetened apple juice, 4 tablespoons of mustard and the seasonings of your choice. The mixture is thin enough to be used as a sauce or a marinade. And it works well with poultry, fish, vegetables and pork.
4.) Grilled Proteins with Lemony Garlic Mustard Sauce
While we are on the topic of grilled proteins, you could opt to go with a lemony garlic mustard sauce or marinade instead. It’s traditionally made with ½ cup of lemon juice (fresh), ½ cup of mustard, 2 tablespoons of EVO and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic.
