Green mealie risotto is a traditional Italian rice dish enriched with kernels harvested from fresh corn.
A few thoughts about your green mealie risotto.
Firstly, keep it simple. Our motto is slow food, made fast. For heaven's sake do not strain off the solids from the mealies; these are the prebiotics that are so important for a healthy colon.
Do not be afraid of the cream if you are retaining all the fibrous part for your green mealie risotto. The fat aids in the absorption of the so important beta-carotenes, and lowers the glycemic index of the starch; it is less likely to trigger raised blood glucose.
Take a short walk after any starchy meal.
Never eat white rice if you value your well-being. It has an extremely high GI, even higher than that of sugar. If you are unconvinced, read the story of the discovery of the first vitamin called thiamine; a very observant doctor noticed the chickens of wealthy people suffered from a nasty disease, later named beri-beri, but those of the poor were healthy. Can you guess why?
There is masses of research confirming that whole grains like brown rice and whole corn kernels are very healthy, but once refined are extremely bad for us.
