Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
¼ cup each Chopped celery and onion
3 tablespoons Butter or margarine
4 cups Whole wheat bread cubes or crumbs
2/3 cup Coarsely chopped natural American pistachios
¼ cup Raisins (optional)
1 teaspoon Grated lemon peel
¼ teaspoon Thyme, crushed
1 to 1–½ cups Warm chicken broth
Sauté celery and onion in butter until tender; combine with bread, pistachios, raisins, lemon peel, thyme and pepper. Add enough chicken broth to bread mixture to moisten. Turn into greased 5-cup baking dish. Bake, covered, at 325° F. 30 minutes; uncover and bake 5 minutes longer.
