Herbed Salmon Loaf with Creamed Peas
This slimmed-down salmon loaf is full of fiber-rich barley. Topped with low-fat creamed peas, it's a tasty and healthy addition to a diabetic meal plan.
Tips: To make 1 cup cooked barley, combine 3/4 cup water and 1/3 cup uncooked quick-cooking barley in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until the barley is tender. Drain, if necessary.
To cook fresh peas, cook 1/2 cup shelled fresh peas in a small amount of boiling water in a covered small saucepan for 10 to 12 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
