MEDICAL EXPO | PO Box 53378 | Tel Aviv | 61534 | Israel | 03-7650500Refried Beans-A great pre-holiday dish to prepare for an easy lunch.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ancho chili powder, or other chili powder
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, preferably low-sodium, drained and rinsed or my leftovers black eyed beans
2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed/pareve broth
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chili powder and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the beans and chicken/pareve broth and cook until the beans are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Mash the beans coarsely with the back of a wooden spoon, adding more broth to moisten, if needed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the cilantro.

Motze Shabat I plan a “modified” stir fry. Frozen edamame, broccoli, peas, 1/2 potato sliced thin, raw red pepper, onion, slivers of carrots, celery, tomatoes, mushrooms, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds. Adding sesame oil and the dish should be very satisfying to a diabetic:
1. Started with large saucepan ( you can use a wok) with bottom coated with olive oil
2. Added roasted garlic and some miso broth to the pan and added the raw vegetables Steamed a few minutes, and added the cooked vegetables
3. Added the remaining seeds At the table added sesame oil.
4. It had the starch of the potato, and the crunch of the seeds.
Sat night-meat stew Lasagna( Pareve) fish, cole slaw,
Sunday day-Lasagna, fish, tofu cheese spinach quiche stew/chicken/cheese spinach kugel depends if we feel like eating dairy or meat
