    Anyone have diabetic-friendly low-carb recipes for kugels or desserts?


    This kugel is very good.

    Spinach Vegetable Kugel

    Prep Time: 5 Minutes; Servings: 6;

    The vegetables for this colorful, vitamin-packed kugel can be prepared quickly in the food processor. Double the recipe for a large crowd. It’s a winner! Use frozen spinach instead of fresh if you prefer.


    10 oz. package (300g) fresh spinach

    2 onions, chopped

    1 stalk celery, chopped

    1 red pepper, chopped

    1 carrots, grated

    1 cup mushrooms, chopped

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    2 eggs plus 2 whites (or 3 eggs)

    3/4 teaspoon salt

    1/4 teaspoon each pepper and garlic powder

    1tablespoon onion soup mix

    1/4 cup matzo meal, preferably whole wheat


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash spinach thoroughly. Remove and discard tough stems. Cook spinach in a covered saucepan until wilted, about 3 minutes (or microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes). Don’t add any water. The water clinging to the leaves will provide enough steam to cook it. Cool and squeeze very dry.

    Low Fat Zucchini Chocolate Muffins

    (Tuesday, December 21st, 2010)

    My friend Elana gave me this recipe. They are a great after-school snack with only 92 calories each. (mothers need an after-school snack to!)


    1/3 cup boiling water

    2 cups shredded zucchini

    1 1/2 cups flour

    1/2 cup cocoa

    3/4 cup sugar

    1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    1/2 cup vegetable oil (canola is good!)

    3 eggs

    1 teaspoon vanilla


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, pour boiling water over zucchini. Add all other ingredients and stir just until well combined. Line muffin pans with paper muffin cups, and use a 1/4 cup measure to pour batter into cups. Bake for 30 minutes. Yields 18 muffins.

    Number of Servings: 18

    Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote

    1 pkg frozen straberries

    2 pkgs frozen rhubarb

    1 apple, grated

    Splenda to taste

    Put rhubarb and grated in a very deep pot. Barely cover with water. Cook until almost soft. Then add frozen strawberries and cook for 5 minutes or so. Sweeten to taste.

    This frezzes very well. It can be used as a dessert by itself or as a sauce over ice cream. This is a staple in my house. I use xylitol when I’m serving it for young children & I don’t want to use splenda.



    Thanks for your responses so far. The recipes sound yummy. Unfortunately I cannot make the zucchini muffins, as they have sugar, and I am cooking for a diabetic. They sound delicious, though. I wish everyone a K”VT for a sweet and healthy new year.



    Try substituting Splenda for the sugar in that recipe.
