The GI Diet Guide


Chinese Clay Pot Vegetables

This dish was inspired by the food served in one of my favorite restaurants when I lived China. The friendly owner used rice as the main base for the dish but this lower glycemic index version has substituted extra vegetables. You can vary the recipe with different vegetables or by adding meat.
