Made this today, it is very tasty. Will make again

I made this yesterday and will be making it again. I went back for a second bowl at supper. It is easy to make and tastes great. I am not diabetic so I added a little more rice than called for. I also added a diced poblano pepper for a little heat.

In what universe is a serving size for soup 1/2 a cup?

Hi there! The American Diabetes Association recommends smaller portion sizes for foods that are considered starchy (such as rice), which is why we've made the portion size on this recipe a little smaller. You can read more about it here: However, you can adjust the portion size to suit your needs. Thank you!

If you don't want to use regular rice, you can always try using Cauliflower rice. That would help to make the carbs even lower.

Rice for a diabetic? ??

Hi there! While this recipe may be on the higher end of the limits for a diabetic diet, it does fall within the guidelines as set by the American Diabetes Association. All of our recipes meet the standards set by the American Diabetes Association to be considered "diabetic-friendly." We recognize that not every person has the same dietary needs and this recipe can be enjoyed in moderation, especially if healthy choices are made throughout the day. We also provide complete Nutritional Information for every recipe (after the instructions) to help you determine if it fits into your diabetic diet. We recommend always speaking with your doctor or nutritionist first to determine what can be included in your meal plan or not. For those who can fit this recipe into their meal plan, we know they will find it as tasty and satisfying as we did when we created it. Thank you for your question!

Made for husband because he loves cabbage rolls and gets them rarely. Didn't think I would like but, had 2 helpings as, it was dlicious! Will be making again!!

I love this. I forgot to put the rice in and didn't even realize it until I was giving my sis the recipe. It is good both ways. Love that I can do this in my slow cooker and come home to a nice hot dinner.
