    Jezagerm's Note:

    This is a delicious, wholesome favorite from my home country, South Africa. You can find a lot of different variations, but this is the one I like the most! I got a similar recipe from a nutritionist I saw who recommended I eat lower GI meals. This is slightly tweaked, but still healthy and with a low GI.
