It is Day 7 of Diabetes Blog Week! The last day is upon us. Today's topic is our Diabetes Hero. I think that my readers know (ad nauseum)that Silent Sam is my hero.
So.... I am going to take a wild card and give you a recipe today. This is one of the first recipes I made when we started changing our diet. It is fast, easy, and has been very popular.

2 tablespooons light tub margarine
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
1/4 cup minced green onions (green and white parts)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1. Set a steamer basket in a small amount of simmering water in a saucepan. Put the potatoes in the basket. Cook, covered, for 8 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain.
2. In a medium bowl, gently stir together the cooked potatoes and the remaining ingredients except the Parmesan.
3. Gently stir in the Parmesan.
