Steamed Assorted Rice with Shrimp and Taro
Sylvia LAM, Chairlady of Hong Kong Dietitians Association, said "Regular white rice contains very little dietary fiber; adding taro, corn kernel, mushroom and red rice can boost fiber content while lowering the glycemic index of the dish. Besides the above vegetables, carrot, red kidney bean and pumpkin can also be used."
