Butternut Risotto – a great recipe for diabetics
I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting this dish, as yet, but it sounds delicious!
Sweet butternut squash lends its pretty color, along with saffron and turmeric, to this classic Italian risotto. Arborio rice is fatter and starchier than other varieties and results in the creamy texture associated with risotto. Instead of grated Parmesan cheese, some cooks save their Parmesan rinds and put one or two in the saucepan once the broth is boiling. This is an efficient way to make use of these cheese “ends.”
• 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
• 1-1/2 cups Arborio rice
• 1/4 teaspoon thread saffron, crushed, or ground turmeric
• 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
• 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
• 1/8 teaspoon pepper
• Finely shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
1. In a medium saucepan bring broth to boiling. Cover and reduce heat until broth just simmers. Meanwhile, in large, nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir for 15 seconds. Add squash and rice; cook and stir 1 minute more.
2. Slowly and carefully add 1/2 cup of the hot broth and the saffron or turmeric to rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir over medium heat until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the broth has been absorbed, but the mixture is creamy. (This should take about 25 minutes total.)
3. Remove from heat; stir in butter or margarine, the 2 tablespoons cheese, and the pepper. Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with additional finely shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
CEO of Dtfootwear.com that offers the best footwear found on the internet! GUARANTEE!
I have been in the footwear business for over 50 years and been trained by the best in the Therapeutic/Orthopedic world.
Health is the number one priority for any person, but especially a person who has diabetes. Intake of proper food creates better weight control and helps control diabetes. We want to create the proper health for your feet, and all done with proper footwear and proper inserts. The following information you’ll be reading is what is required to achieve that perfect health for your feet.
Please allow us to get you fitted with the proper footwear, and hopefully, with our help, you will be working your way toward success in keeping this disease out of your feet. We, at “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic,” know that proper footwear for you and the need to have the proper inserts to keep diabetes out of your feet is essential. Footwear should be fashionable (and we have that), but the ultimate purpose of the shoe is to control upper support and to off-load any problems that you have on the top of your foot. If you are experiencing issues with the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of a proper, removable insert to correct them. Many people believe that it is the shoe that solves all or most of the problems for people with diabetes or people with significant foot problems, but that is not always the case. Off-loading requires three elements – corrections, added support, and needed circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.
Shoes for diabetics should not have inside seams that create irritation.
First of all, the proper shoe needs to be an Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (which many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today). Secondly, Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Inserts are necessary. Beside great support, the other advantages of added off-loading will help you develop better balance for walking or running, and the 2% increase in temperature of the bottom of your feet will aid in developing better circulation to keep the disease out of your feet. Think of the added pleasures and advantages in just one item.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the lengths and the hard-to-find widths. And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Anyone who requires an adequately fitted width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. What that means is that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. For example, if you require a 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E bottom for the base of that width. Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance.
Also, be sure to wear proper footwear and use inserts to keep this disease out of your feet. “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic” will teach you the many advantages of proper footwear and why Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort shoes are the only way to ensure a successful fit and the comfort you want.
A comfort shoe is not always an Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoe. And also, keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. The lack of midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. These combined movements will increase stress to your feet. Please view all our styles by going to our site dtfootwear.com
We, at DTF, have a deep concern for people with diabetes and their need for properly-fitted footwear. We can provide 15 different widths for Men and Ladies. 4 A (Slender for Ladies), 2 A (Narrow for Ladies), B (Narrow for Men and Medium for Ladies) D ( Medium for Men and Wide for Ladies) 2 E, 3 E, 4 E, 5 E, 6 E, 7 E, 9 E, 10 E, and 14 E in both men and women footwear. Dtfootwear can help those who have difficulty finding “oversizes” – up to 15 in length for Women and up to 20 in length for Men. We can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length for ladies in wider widths and 5 to 6 in Men-style in wider widths. In addition to being capable of providing these wide widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear, we are offering a FREE GIFT to you! With every pair of shoes purchased, we will include up to (3) sets of Customized Heat Moldable Inserts that will provide even more support, added balance, and stability every time you wear your shoes.
I hope that this blog has provided you with enough information to help you understand how we can help you. In conclusion, if you are having problems with your feet please do not hesitate to call me on my cell phone 909-215-1622. I am often on the phone or in a meeting, so please leave a message and I will return your call at my earliest opportunity!
Please take this blog seriously because if you were to spend a day with us, you would learn of the types of complications that develop from not wearing proper footwear and inserts … and by not taking care of your feet.
We have a saying in our company “try us and you’ll have the experience of walking on a pillow, all day long, with more added support and more room and balance than you have ever had before with any of your shoes.”
So now you see the importance of a good diet and the proper footwear to keep your feet healthy at all times.
