Helpful hints

  • Look for bottled or canned roasted red peppers with 85 mg or less sodium per ounce, or roast fresh red peppers to puree. Trader Joe’s fire roasted red peppers contain only 60 mg sodium per ounce.
  • Hot sauce brands and varieties vary greatly in sodium content. Stick to the original Tabasco® hot pepper sauce because it’s much lower in sodium. Increase to 6 teaspoons if you like more heat.
  • Serve with raw vegetables. Lower potassium choices include carrots, celery, cucumber, cauliflower for dipping, or lettuce or cabbage leaves for wraps.
  • If serving at a party bake then place in a small slow cooker to keep warm.

I have tried or read several recipes. I always omit cucumbers for myself (my husband loves cucs. My dietician told me cucumbers are high in potassium, but Davita's recipes always say they are low in potassium? Please help! Dietitian comment: 1/2 cup cucumber slices has 75 mg potassium. One large cucumber has 442 mg potassium. As long as you eat a reasonable portion cucumbers are a good choice.
