Diabetes: Brussel sprouts recipe. Bacon and maple syrup glaze for Thanksgiving

Amazingly delicious Brussel sprouts. Children will appreciate the sweet taste of maple syrup. For the people with diabetes, you could replace it by the sugar free alternative.

Diabetes diet: Brussel sprouts belong to any Thanksgiving meal, especially when they taste as good as these. Add some bacon and maple syrup for an explosion of flavours. You could also use sugar free maple syrup if you do not want to use the real thing. 

Ingredients

  • 300g brussel sprouts
  • 25g onions
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 50g bacon
  • 1 tbsp or 20g maple syrup

  • Chop the onions

  • Pour the brussel sprouts into an oven-proof dish
  • Add salt and pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Add the onions to the dish
  • Add the bacon
  • Put in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until done
  • When you are ready to serve, pour the maple syrup on the brussel sprouts 
  • Mix well
  • It is ready!

Diabetes & Carb content:

This dish is for 3 people.

Each 300g of brussels sprouts contains 1R or 10g carbs 

1 tbsp or 20g maple syrup contains 1,3R or 13g carbs

If 3 people share this dish, each portion will be 0,76R or 7,6g carbs (10+13=23g carbs, so 23/3= 7,6g carbs for each portion)

👉 You could use some “fake” maple syrup if you didn’t want the carbs. I bought this brand and it tastes of maple syrup for sure. However, I prefer using the real thing as I don’t like all these E-numbers but it is entirely up to you!
