Back on the Low GI Diet Bandwagon...

I'm back on the Low GI bandwagon big style this week, as I've noticed my health deteriorating.

I made a Mixed Grain Jambalaya last night, based on an Antony Worrall Thompson recipe who has written a couple of good Low GI cookbooks over the years.

This was very tasty... even with all the grains!

Makes 2 large portions.

250g chicken breast, diced
1/2 cup flour
sunflower oil
1 onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, chopped
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
1 red chilli, chopped
3 okra, sliced
400g chopped tomatoes
500ml chicken stock
100g chorizo, chopped
75g brown basmati rice
25g millet seeds
250 king prawns (cooked)
25g pumpkin seeds

dust chicken in flour and set aside. Heat the oil in a large saucepan then add onion, garlic, chilli and okra. Fry until cooked. Add peppers, fry until soft, then add chicken. Keep stirring so it doesn't stick until cooked before adding chorizo. Add millet seeds and fry for a couple more minutes.

Add the tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to the boil. Lower heat and add rice. Cook until rice tender and liquid has reduced. Add prawns and pumpkin seeds until heated through. Serve.
