And here's the thing: vegetables are a carbohydrate. And they are the type of carbohydrate you need to focus on eating, especially with diabetes or prediabetes.
Still, when most people think about vegetables. They think they are destined to eat ‘steamed broccoli or carrots' for the rest of their lives. Now, if you had to live on that it would be plain boring and not at all appealing long term!
The good news is, you're not going to be stuck eating plain ‘ol steamed veg because there are many tasty things you can do with veggies to make them enjoyable – like this Cheesy Veggie Bake.
This is the type of meal that works well as a side dish with chicken, meats or fish. And, it can be made ahead, kept in the fridge and even be frozen for a later date.

Cut carbs further – use asparagus, cabbage, or Brussels sprouts instead of carrots. Use spring onions/ scallions instead of onion.
Super dairy lovers – add 1/2 cup cottage cheese and mix through the tomato mixture.
Cheats – use canned diced tomatoes instead of dicing fresh ones. 1 x 14 oz/ 400 g can will do the trick.
Storage – keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
