Food Blog Finds: Great Low-Glycemic Recipes from My Blogging Friends

I'm going to start sharing some Food Blog Finds with you once a week or so on Kalyn's Kitchen. These are some of the best low-glycemic or lower-carb recipes I've seen on other food blogs this week.

The first thing that caught my eye recently was Salmon with Greens and Shitake Mushrooms on What Did You Eat. Salmon, Bok Choy and Mushrooms were combined to make a dish that looked fantastic to me.

At Just Braise I was taken by the sound of Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup. Stacey says this was inspired by a soup she had in an Indian restaurant in Chicago.

Rorie at Milk and Honey had the idea of combining edamame with pasta, which really appealed to me. I would use Dreamfield's pasta to keep this lower in carbs, but otherwise wouldn't need to change a thing!

The Travelers Lunchbox does two delicious pestos in a delightful post called Pesto with a Pedigree. For my lower carb way of eating I would use the pesto on Dreamfield's pasta, as a stuffing for chicken breasts, or spread on fish.

At Orangette, Molly prepared a fantastic sounding Quick Braised Pork with Vinegar and Peppers. Vinegar lowers the Glycemic Index of other foods, so this would be perfect to serve over brown rice, or Use Uncle Ben's Converted Rice if you want the lowest glycemic index white rice.

At The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz, Paz is cooking one of my favorite types of fish, Tilapia. Her Tilapia with Citrus Bagna Cuoda looks great.

Foodatista is cooking Salmon Fillet with Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Crust. I would reduce the amount of breadcrumbs and use whole wheat panko crumbs to make this lower carb, but this recipe sounds wonderful.

Finally, at Beyond Salmon, Helen has prepared Seared Striped Bass with Green Curry. To me this looks like it would taste amazing. I would use Uncle Ben's Converted Rice for a lower glycemic white rice, but otherwise this recipe is perfect for my way of eating. I'm really loving this blog. If you don't feel that confident about cooking fish, it's a great resource.

When I look at the recipes I chose for this week, there seems to be a fish theme, doesn't there? I guess I need to be cooking more fish. So many good recipes, so little time . . .

Speaking of time, it's almost time for Weekend Herb Blogging again.
