Cannellini Bean Salad: A make ahead fiber-rich superfood for diabetics

I’m sharing a simple recipe to prevent diabetes, for borderline diabetics and diabetics.

White beans are known as the diabetic’s superfood because of its balance of protein and complex carbohydrates. Aside from soluble fiber which controls blood cholesterol levels, it contains saponins and phytoserols which help lower cholesterol. Its loaded with potassium, iron, folate, manganese, B vitamins and its low in fat. Eat it in moderation to improve cognitive abilities and its great for detox. Incorporating white beans in your diet can reduce the risk of potential cancer and even brain aneurysms.

However, avoid it if you suffer from high uric acid or gout. It may also trigger migraines or allergic reactions so consult your doctor when this happens.

Cannelloni: A step by step guide

My sister and I have always wanted to cook ‘cannelloni’ but with some ingredients made from scratch, like the tomato sauce and the ‘besciamella’ sauce. Its easier to just use store-bought tomato and bechamel sauce but we wanted to ‘control’ the flavor so to speak. Also, my sister has a technique for achieving such a smooth and creamy white sauce that she has not taught me (yet).

For the meat part, I do not season it right from the start plus I use my combination of salt, pepper, turmeric & three more spices to bring out a distinct flavor. But for purposes simple cooking, season with salt & pepper plus nutmeg (optional) and in lieu of spinach and ricotta cheese we used basil and cheddar cheese.

I have broken down the recipe by ingredients & procedures for meat, tomato sauce, white sauce, how to assemble, how to bake and how to serve. Hope  you enjoy what we’ve shared.

UrMajestySiresFoodExperiments: ‘Kinilaw na Dilis with Lato’ or ‘Anchovy Ceviche with Seaweed’

blog_april_kinilaw na dilis na may lato at labuyo_watermark

Sharing my ‘Bisaya’ side of the family’s simple version of ‘kinilaw’ or ‘kilawin’ which has many regional versions in Filipino cooking. Its basically composed of raw fish cleaned (innards removed) marinated in a mix of vinegar, ginger, salt, pepper and chili.

Now ‘ceviche’ is pretty much the same as kinilaw, which is Spanish or Latin American in origin. The differences are that the fish meat is cured using citrus juices and the addition of olive oil.

Farmed and now readily available  at supermarkets, ‘lato’ or ‘caulerpa lentillifera’ is a type of seaweed which resembles small grapes. It is also known as ‘arosep,’ ‘ar-arosep,’ or ‘lato bilog.’

Here’s a simple version, hope you like it and thanks for the click!
