Celery Garlic Toast

A delicious starter made with low-fat butter, celery and garlic ground together to make an aromatic spread. Both celery and garlic are beneficial for diabetics. I have chosen celery for this recipe as it is very low in carbohydrates and is a storehouse of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron (which is required for healthy eyes, immunity and blood). Garlic on the other hand is helpful in preventing heart disease by reducing the occurrence of clot formation in blood (that can block the arteries). Serve it with your favourite soup or whole wheat pasta to make a wholesome meal.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes.
Cooking Time: Nil.
Makes 4 toasts (8 pieces).
Baking Temperature: 180°C (360°F).

4 whole wheat bread slices

For the celery garlic spread
¼ cup chopped celery (ajmoda)
2 tsp roughly chopped garlic (lehsun)
1 tsp low-fat butter
Salt to taste

For the celery garlic spread
1. Combine all the ingredients and blend in a mixer to a coarse paste without using water.
2. Divide it into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed
